Base on the information on the FAQ from punkbuster it cause by internet security or firewalls. It says to adjust settings or disable the software.

link below
PunkBuster "handshaking failed" or "Losing Key Packets", how can I fix that?

Usually updating PunkBuster is the fix, but other causes have been scattered around Steam and EA forums, including IS like BaX mentioned and a Live utility called Tune-up.
Open the ports for BC2:
18390 TCP Outgoing
18395 TCP Outgoing
18395 UDP Outgoing
13505 TCP Outgoing
80 TCP Outgoing (should be open by default as it's for HTTP)

Also check if you're running that Live utility.

Server admin here.

Its your internet connection. Weather a firewall or a connection issue, you aren't making a sufficient connection for it to let you play.

Was it the firewalls?

Mainly bumped to ask a Q to all, When I reinstall my OS this weekend, Will my BFBC2 CD Key not let me use it on the 2nd time i've installed it?
