I have been playing online for weeks without any difficulty but last night when I tried to login I got "error creating a socket" If I try to connect again in boots me to desktop. I have a Athlon 3500 with 1G of RAM and a NVidia Geforce 6200LE. I'm running WinXP with built in firewall(tried using zone alarm as well). I am behind a router as well. none of my configs have changed recently. I attempted to add the ports and bf2.exe to firewall and router. I can still play singleplayer. Any help would be great. I really want to get back into multiplayer. Thnx

Use zonealarm instead of windows firewall. Windows firewall sucks.

Nice answer i am sure hearing that windows firewall sucks really helped alot. Have u checked your computer for spyware u may have picked up cause that will play h*** with the game and did try doing a complete uninstall and reinstall i hope this helps.
