SERVER CONNECTION PROBLEM!!! PLEASE HELP!!!

So the story is, i turn on Team Fortress 2 on Sunday, and for some reason, I cant find any servers when I attempt to browse servers or click "Start Playing". I tried joining a server my friend was in and I couldn't because after loading for 2 bars, the message "failed to connect after 4 tries" popped up and I couln't join. I tried to join a server while not having TF2 launched initially, but was met with the same problem. I've check that my firewall allows TF2 and steam, and I even uninstalled my firewall as a test.I have uninstalled and reinstalled TF2 as well and still no luck. Anyone know about this problem, or how to fix it?

This is a router issue. Essentially when the router sees the game pinging all the servers it takes a crap. Try resetting the router. If you still have issues check the firmware and settings.

Find the thing that provides you with the wireless connection. On the back side there should be a little button you have to push in with a pen. Push that in for 10 seconds.

I'm connected via WiFi, and I'm at a boarding school . My location doesnt effect this, because I've been able to play before, and the people around me still can.
