    Every time i go to connect to Counterstrike Source or Day of Defeat Source to get the server list my entire network lags out like crazy and i don't even get a complete list of hosts, whats with this? The server ping is around 1000-2000ms but when i connect im completely fine. I have ventrilo running when i open CSS or DoDS and im operating behind a router if either of those might be problems.

    I've just made a test now with CSS. I've no connection problem : I got a list of more than 300 servers.
    I've already said in another thread that the last Steam version is bugged.
    Also, if you want to play CSS or DoDs, don't launch Steam at the startup of your computer : launch directly the game via its own shortcut on your desktop. And when you disconnect from the game, switch off Steam in the systray.
