I recently re-installed counter-strike retail version onto my computer and am having problems logging onto Valve and WON. When i first installed it I was using just the LAN games at on my home network, but now that wont even work. I did add the 1.3 CS retail Xp update too but still no luck. If anyone can help i would appreciate it!

Using a firewall?

Um was using a firewall (sygate personal pro) but took it down. I am Running Xp but disabled that firewall. It may be possible that my router has setup up a firewall though 2 computers on the same LAN can still connect!?!? so im still clueless

Counter-Strike has a anti-piracy feature built into it. If two different computers using the same CD-Key try to play online at the same time, the first to connect will work, and all other different computers using the same CD-Key will not be allowed onto online multiplayer servers.

Patch or full upgrade ?

the incremental upgrade is known to be less stable that full patch.
Try that see how you get on.

IM not understanding here. Are you saying to install the incremental patch (what is that by the way) or are you saying to install the full. Because i currently have installed the Half Life-Counter Strike (retail) patch 1.0.0.3. Still wont connect to Valve or Won! Thanx for the reply
