Freezes on sending client info

Whenever I join a server, it always ends up freezing at sending client info, and I already have done a fresh install of gmod.

How long have you waited when it’s frozen?

Atleast 5 minutes or more, and it apparently does this if anyone joins a server I host. (I only have the freezing problem when I try to join someone else’s server)

It also shows that I am in the server, but my game is just completely frozen.
