Connecting Problems

Hello, i have been experiencing a weird bug/problem. When i try joining a Garry’s Mod server it wont load. It will just say Connecting to server. I’ve tried connecting to over 15 servers, LAN servers, restarting game, Validating Steam files and restarting steam.

Can you connect to online games on CS:S or TF2? Make sure it’s allowed through any firewalls you have. Do you have any anti-virus software installed?
