    Hi, new to the forum and dont have much computer experience. But i
    having this problem for Counter-Strike 1.6. I've downloaded steam an
    got all the updates. When I try to connect to a server to play, the bo
    would show "Establishing connection to network server.." with 3 bar an
    froze. The only way out would be Ctrl+Alt+Del and End Task.

    At first, I thou it was Windows Firewall and the router. After I'v
    disable both, still no luck

    A friend is having the same issue and hes also running Vista x64

    Please help as I tried many times and many different methods.
    My spec, Intel Core i7, Evga X58, EVGA GTX 285

    There seems to be a known problem with Steam client and Valve game
    caused by Linksys routers
    Add this parameter to each game you're playing: CS: Source, DOD: Sourc
    Right click on the game, select Properties from the context menu. Onc
    in properties window click on [Set launch options...] button
    Launch options window will appear. Enter the following value
    +clientport 2700
    Save it
    Now it should work..

    You can also try going to your router config page and see if there is
    an option to open ports. On my router there is an option to open
    gaming ports - I just need to pick the game from a dropdown box (in a
    section called "Assigned Games & Applications") and click add. In this
    case, I added "Half Life 2" to the list and it works... as CS:S is
    based on the HL2 engine and uses the same ports:

    UDP : 27000 - 27015
    TCP : 27030 - 27039

    Yup - don't snip out all of a thread's previous history. You're talking into
    empty space.
