Windows 7: LEFT4DEAD2 Connects Local Server, but Never Dedicated Server

12 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
LEFT4DEAD2 Connects Local Server, but Never Dedicated Server

Wireless-N Gigabit Router WRT310Nv2
Firmware Version: v2.0.01

Computer Model:
HP Pavilion Elite HPE 410f
Running Road Runner 12D/512U

Network is connected as follows:
Modem >> Ooma >> Router >> Linksys Gigabyte Switch >> Then my computer.

Left4Dead2 Files Up to Date
Steam is Up To Date
All Drivers on computer are up to date

When I go into the actual game to play left for dead. I cannot, myself, create a game and point it to a dedicated server, but I can create a local server game.

If someone already has a room started and has dedicated server, but I am not the host, I have no problem connecting to the dedicated server.

I, myself, Just cannot create a new room with dedicated server, only local server.
