ya i was all hyped up when i got BF2. i was like "oh ya i cant wait to get on line and pwn some noobs!(i was THAT excited)" but when i created my account, and went to the server list, i was sadly dissapointed to find that no servers were available:bawl:. now it cant be that EVERYONE is now online with BF2 SF, so i figured it might have been my PC. my firewall is zone alarm, regular not pro. also this seens to happen to me with every game. any help is greatly appreciated!

You might want to check Zonealarm's program settings, to see if BF2 is in the program list, and it's checked (to let it open to internet connections). If you turn off zonealarm and can connect, then I think that zonealarm is 'temproarily' blocking it, I.E., it's got that 'do you want it to connect popup', and if BF2 is blocking it, you might not notice it. sometimes, even when teh zonealarm thing isn't visible, pressing enter will close the zonealarm popup, and it will let you connect.

No, you need to patch the game.

Either download the 1.12 patch or wait until the 1.2 patch comes out. You must be running the same version as the servers to be able to join them. If you have patched and are still unable to see or join any servers then uncheck the "same version only" check box inthe server browser window.
