From our new PunkBuster FAQ (http://support.steampowered.com/cgi-bin/steampowered.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=764):

PunkBuster requires that your network allow traffic on the following UDP port: 27666. You must configure your network to allow UDP traffic on this port in order to use PunkBuster.

Certain routers have been known to cause connection issues with PunkBuster. Listed below are some of those models and the recommended firmware version to use in order to avoid these issues:

* Linksys - possible solution: Use firmware 1.44.2
* Motorola - possible solution: Update to latest firmware
* Netgear - possible solution: Disable SPI (statefull packet inspection)

Please make sure that you consult your router's instruction manual before updating the firmware. If you have trouble while performing a firmware update, please contact your router manufacturer for assistance.
