Until today, I never had any problems joining any servers on GMod.
But since today, whenever I try to join a server, I can’t get past “Retrieving server info…” and can’t play on any server anymore. I tried to join several different servers. It gets stuck at “Retrieving server info…” for a while (maybe 10 - 15 minutes?) and then disconnects, saying I timed out.
Now the thing is that my ISP changed yesterday.
GMod was working with the old router yesterday (while already connected to the new ISP), but I got a new router today from the new ISP and it stopped working after switching out the old router with the new one. I set up port forwarding for my new router (a Fritz!Box 7490), but it doesn’t work.
I also disabled my firewall and tried to verify game cache. Additonally, I downloaded and installed Garry’s Mod on my laptop today to check whether it’s a problem with my desktop, but the problem occurs on both computers. Maybe I should also mention that I’m now using a wireless connection while previously (until yesterday), it wasn’t wireless.
Other Steam games work perfectly fine in mulitplayer, it’s just GMod where I can’t join servers anymore.
Here’s my desktop’s specs just in case:
2x GTX 770
I would be very glad if someone has any advice for what I could do to fix this or to help me find out the cause of the problem. Thanks a lot.
