Sorry, cs:s has been discontinued in favor of the new hybrid FPS/Hat simulator from VALVe called Team Fortress 2 (http://store.steampowered.com/app/440/) but the good news is TF2 is free!

Have a nice day.

Are you using a router? Here's a list of required ports for Steam https://support.steampowered.com/kb_...8571-GLVN-8711

Also, check your firewall so it's not blocking HL2.exe. I think that's the name of CS:S's executable.

Router is fine, and enable firewall exception too. But still not working. Do i need to install master server or something?

No. How long do you wait for server list to list servers? Give it a minute. Master servers have been slowish due to TF2 being free these days.

Might also be that you have old "cache" and CSS can't overwrite it. Usually it does that if you wait couple of mins but if not, run CSS with -autoconfig option, start the game, shut the game down, remove the option and start the game again.

Deleting ClientRegistry.blob in your \Program Files (x86)\Steam folder and restarting Steam might be able to fix this problem.

sounds like maybe you were playing "another" version of CSS before you bought it.
maybe that broke somethings?

Verify the game cache and try deleteing the game folder under your username and let steam rebuild the game.

I these parts in particular will address your issue

Serverbrowser Problems

If you only have a problem with servers listing or staying listed or in history (but can play otherwise (client problem), you should be able to solve the problem by closing Steam, deleting masterservers.vdf and serverbrowser.vdf in the Config directory, and re-launching Steam.
Try the masterservers.vdf files from this article as well

https://support.steampowered.com/kb_...1452-HCVB-6984

Note this is more of a CS:S issue and should really be moved to the appropriate sub-forum.
