• Connection issues in either Source games or Steam
    10 replies, posted
Hello. Since my dad changed our router I've been experiencing connection problems in Source games (Tested: Gmod, Tf2) or Steam. The problem is that when I play on a game server and after a little while everything and everyone stops moving and the little box in the top that says something about connection lost auto disconnect in 30-s. Then I get disconnected for "Lost connection to server". I've tried this on two different Garry's Mod servers and one Team Fortress 2 server. I've checked my AVG (Not sure how to shut off completely, I have only disabled the "anti-virus" part. I tested playing BFBC2 and it went totally fine. I've also tried to take away UPnP, that did not solve the problem. Thanks in advance.
Have you port-forwarded the Steam ports on the router?
Doubt it. I'll try. Oh and by the way I don't lose connection to the steam chat, only to the game servers
I've port-forwarded the Steam ports (27005-27020), that didn't help.
What is the brand and type of the router?

Trying that. I've done everything in the green box. Time to hold thumbs.
