I didn't make it!
Yea, I'm having the "Failed to Connect. Please check your connection(s) and try again" error, but with a twist. It was just raining here and as I was playing BF2, the power suddenly went on and off a few times. Well, after a while, I reboot the PC and try playing BF2 again. Now what I dont get is; 1: It logs me in no prob, then; 2: I can refresh and update the servers page, but whenever I try to join a server, I get the above-stated error, and thanks to EA's oh-so-helpful,-you-can't-contact-us-because-we-dont-like-you,- so-we're-giving-you-this-long,crappy,useless-online-pos manual, I have been forced to find something other than EA's tech guys to take my rage out on . Anyone know anyway to fix this? I've already rebooted twice to no avail . -------------------------------- And yes, I did have to sign-up to these forums just to try to get some help from the game community just because EA's too lazy to get off their fat arses to answer a few e-mails about tech problems.

Hmm, how can you accuse EA when the problem is very likely at your end? Did you reboot your modem, have you tested to see if it has been damaged by the power probelms, same applies to your network card and etc.
You might want to run a 'chkdsk /F' just to make sure there aren't any filesystem errors. Usually Windows XP detects when there's been a filesystem error and will run chkdsk automatically the next time you reboot. But with the power flickering on and off maybe an error was created but Windows didn't detect it. Start --> Run --> cmd --> press Enter --> type in chkdsk /F --> press Enter --> press Y and press Enter again --> reboot You might not have a filesystem error but you might want to run the check just to make sure.
the powere outage could have reset your modem ...could have reset your router. could have scrambled your firewall. man. people are just looking for stuff to hang on Ea right now.......and it is their own damn faults .LOL ......
Hmm, maybe not HIS fault exactly (but get a UPS, I have one, no problems due to power outages here!) , but he is looking in the wrong place for a solution.
