Brand new computer. Steam/DH/RO installed.......NO servers in menu. Firewall disabled...check. Other vendor anti-virus disabled....check. i even tried thru GT Lite. "Unknown steam error is preventing you from connecting to this server. Contact valve for support."
Jesus!

i had a same prob altho with game servers

you can try to go to your steam folder

mostly C programfiles/steam delete everything except steamapss folder and steam exe

make SURE you keep those 2 files, remove everything else, close steam and restart steam, now he gonna update and reinstall the correct files, that can fix your prob, but i dont promise anything but better somethig to try then nothing

i could not find servers with homefront i did this and bam everything works perfect

Try starting a local game for each of the games with this problem. As soon as you have started the game exit & then look for the server info.

welllll......i can search on Gametracker and then manually enter the IP and join a game. but that's hardly a satisfactory state of affairs.
