Steam Connection problem

  1. Every steam game I have ( even mods like Garry's Mod and Insurgency ) won't let me connect to any servers besides the ones I create with bots.

    When I try to connect to a server it says "Client Dropped By Server"

    I tried disabling my firewall to try and see if it was blocking connection, it didn't fix it and I also tried to reinstall, nothing fixes it :(

    Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

    I can connect to other online games like Company of Heros

    27000-27015 and
