The new firewall that came with SP 2 may be blocking a program from accepting outside connections. I have no idea what game you are talking about, but press the windows key when you playing, and when it minimizes there may be a window telling you the firewall is indeed blocking it. Click 'unblock' and everything should be fine.

(Note: with the new SP 2 firewall, you have to manually configure every program you don't want it to block)

And that gets annoying... Sometimes games will lock-up, or crash out, when alt-tabbing. rendering these unplayable online. (NFS:HP2, is the newest I know of, that still has this problem).

I recommend finding all the programs for the game you play, and setting them before playing the game.
