K,
well if your having problems connecting to master server lists, that suggest either firewall issues on 7 or router. Have u had this problem before? This suggest to me that your outbound server retrieval is not being allowed.

Well having no router setup and my windows firewall off... my list will show for the server in the steam app, but when i get ingame, if i refresh my list it will tell me connection to master server failed, and when tryin to connect to a server from the steam app it will load my game and say , connectin.....' then it will pop up sayin its tryed 4 times and it tells me theres a firewall or router issue, which there isn't.

Steam list is a very simple thing, If its saying theres a problem connecting then there is somewhere along the line. Ill have a think about it and get back to you

Ok
Do this for me
Add this server to favs
87.106.104.176:27060

Then tell me what server it is. IF that works then your outbound connection is working fine. Otherwise it would not retrieve that server info.
I was talking to a friend last night who had the EXACT same problem, he backed up all his games and reinstalled steam
If you have not allready done that then try that. Failing that i think we need to be looking at a 7 Network issue.
I have read on steam forums people with the same problem not all on win 7 though. They suggested disabling IP6 ( i think its called ) in your network properties
And try the following:
Turning off Windows firewall
Deleting ClientReg.blob
Deleting all the masterserver.v thing

Ill continue to look around.
The fact that you have direct link to the net, no router etc... its defo a 7 issue. Think we need to be looking at network issues.
NOW. This may be a long shot but worth a try ive seen it work before ( on vista) dont know how though.
Install a new firewall. Then try to play a decent firewall will ask you to allow access. Grant it see if that helps. Cos if you grant access then the new firewall should allow that port outbound.

Well sevenfragservers or sth it is an assualt map was on , mind you i could retrieve that only in my steam server window on my desktop, not ingame.

Now i unchecked my IPv6 and tryed with no luck .
i have no idea where you mean to delete ClientReg.blob or masterservers.v... not sure where to check those....

i'll look into this firewall thing.... i don't like it...but i suppose if this is my only solution or POSSIBLE solution its worth looseing my dl's if all else fails to reinstall windows 7.... sheeshh, sucks that this is all my games... my hero online or atantica online won't even let me press the play button ><

well dam check this... my store page. like all the websites within the valve program won't load, they stay a white screen so i figured this was another thing that was being caused by this issue ive been having, i check a steam answers forum and found a procedure that alters the registry, so i tryed to add a string CafeRate. , set that baby to 5000 and restarted my steam appy.... sure enough the websites work now...BUT when i try to connect to a server , it still tryed 4 times then disconnects.

but all in all, what this breaks down to is my network not allowing 'master servers' or 'front servers' to connect what so ever.... still bothers the hell out of me.
