I suggest making sure you have no filters set in your game browser. Alternatively If you can't get it to work through the ingame browser try using "All Seeing Eye" to browse for games.
Here's a link.
It says it isn't free but it is.
The problem you're having is that when you install the new patch, the servers you can't find anymore haven't installed the patch and are still running on version 1.6. A lot of servers are waiting to install the new patch. Ea and a few other servers have the new patch installed. It's a toss up right now till the Linux server patch comes out and things settle down a little. People are hesitant to install the new secret patch not knowing what it's for. I do know it changes 3 files in your game. The BF1942.exe, the BF1942_w32ded, and the init.con file. There's a zip file out that will overwrite these three files and convert you back to 1.6. It took less than a minute to do. I'll try to find it again for you.
I just found this Patch Switcher.
This allows you to switch your game between the 1.6 and 1.6.1 patch.
Install into your Battlefield 1942 main folder.
Run the icon at your desktop and follow the instructions.
Well I can't switch my BF servers over until the LInux Patch comes out so go figure.
