Okay, I've been fiddling with this problem for a while now and I've had enough.
Two out of three servers that I try to join don't let me. I just get stuck in a screen with ''Awaiting Connection'' and an endless count up.
There would be times when restarting Quake would actually help and allow me to enter the server that I wanted to, but this is becoming very rare. Also I notice that this happens more frequently with player-spawned servers.
This all started happening when the Quake Live standalone came out and up until this point nothing similar had happened before.
As you can imagine this is very frustrating as I have not found any solutions online.
Any suggestion?
