Counter-Strike connection problem

Hi, new to the forum and dont have much computer experience. But im
having this problem for Counter-Strike 1.6. I've downloaded steam and
got all the updates. When I try to connect to a server to play, the box
would show "Establishing connection to network server.." with 3 bar and
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've
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.

Thanks.

Re: Counter-Strike connection problem

There seems to be a known problem with Steam client and Valve games
caused by Linksys routers.
Add this parameter to each game you're playing: CS: Source, DOD: Source
etc.
Right click on the game, select Properties from the context menu. Once
in properties window click on [Set launch options...] button.
Launch options window will appear. Enter the following value:
+clientport 27006
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

I tried to port to the listed ports but still no luck. I have almost
tried the DMZ and still cant. The router is a D-Link 655.

I have a friend who is using Vista 64 and we both cant get pass this
screen here.

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