One way to prevent this is watch the server refresh list and hit stop refresh before it gets to like 1000 servers or you can go and by a router that supports more than 1000 requests.

I use a linksys WRT54G to play cs:s. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...010&Tpk=WRT54G
I have a Netgear WRT614 v.6. It has the latest firmware on it and it runs fine. Although i have been having some slight problems, such as port forwarding lists disappearing, yet still functioning. But the router functions are 100% fine. The thing that gets me is that me and my brother used to play on steam accounts together and never had one issue with the router being bombarded with 2 requests for 1000+ servers. But now, all of a sudden it has problems with it.
