Connection to host lost -- Cmon already! Make it work!
like soooo many others here, I purchased the game so I could play MP online. I've followed all of the instructions to the letter regarding Gamespy and BF port forwarding, firewalls, patches, hosting speeds, WAN enabling, uninstalling, reinstalling, blah blah blah.
I even DMZd my computer, making it publicly accessible but still, no dice. I have not installed any new maps or mods. This is a fresh out of the box install.
I'm on a Westell DSL modem, Linksys router, WinXP SP2. My hardware is all up to snuff and I've downloaded all the latest drivers for my video cards.
Will someone please post the definitive solution to this problem?!
