I get the same problem. I go to multi player the first time it can not connect, but I do it the second time no problem. also when I go to quick match it crashes to desk top??????

HEres a fix. If you have a router disable the UPnP. After that turn off all firewalls, and it should work fine. If you game starts crashing when u try to look for servers, make sure the game type is NOT set to all, change it to survival or w/e u want.

oh and MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE PORTS TO THE GAME OPEN!! (these can be found in the FAQ of ubi support)

Alright ill try it out ..

I've tried all this and I still can't get it to connect past this error. Trying twice doesn't help at all, it doesn't even try to connect just gives me the error straight away. Oddly I can then no longer goto the lan setup screen either. I just get a "connect failed" message. My guess is that theres a bug where the network class/object isn't being reset properly. What ever the reason (naff coders, forced deadlines, **** ubi.com interface) its not on. This was all broken back in the days of raven shield. Why can't they get this **** right when other games have been doing it for 10 years+!

After that turn off all firewalls

Honestly, I would not call that a fix...<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Update : I got it working by going wired instead of wireless. Settings for the router remained unchanged and to be double sure I tried again with a second router. Again, worked with wires, failed without.

It's almost certainly just vegas being **** but is there perhaps some special setting I can tweak (game or wireless) that might help until ubi sort it?
