When playing Half-Life mods on steam I can see the master server list and ping all the servers but I can't connect to them it always stops at the "establishing connection to server" part. Nor can I log in to the Friends Network. Sure, I may be on a college network, but I can play all my other games online so i don't know why this would be different. I'm also using a router but I forwarded the necessary ports (in think). So any ideas?

ok it isn't my router becuase it won't connect when I don't use my router either

And I tried my Hard Copy of Half-Life to see what would happen and I can play those games, just not Steam ones

here's an interesting twist, I can connect to games as a spectator but not as a player.

could have something to do with the router and firewall that the school is behind. other than that, i don't really know.
