How often does this happen. I have been playing this game since it's release in 2006 and I would get this sporadically, but in that situation all I'd do is exit MP and then reconnect and that would resolve the issue. The issue from my understanding is just a time out during a connect due to a fart by the authorization server. Are you getting this consistently with every connect?

it happens everytime..

Hmm I honestly don't know then what can be causing this. Since other people can connect to multi-player without any problems I am inclined to think it is something on your side but one never knows. Hopefully someone more informed will stop by here.

Maybe it's a duplicate name? Or banned name?
