My friend has a cs:s problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok, whenever my friend tries to connect to a server (he got into one, one time), like overclock.net's now...he gets an error that says Connection Failed after 4 retries. Any idea on how to fix this?

I've been getting this error too lately... I don't know what it's about but it seems to be a problem with steam. I just kept trying different ones until I finally found one.

If it only happens every once in a while, either exit steam and wait 5 minutes or restart. If that doesn't fix it then you've probably got some ports disabled that need to be enabled. You can probably call one of the HL2 or steam toll free numbers and find out which or read an FAQ at their site. Other factors can be causing it, such as a Firewall (nVidia/Windows) or the broadband's itself which would require calling the internet provider.
