Turning off my firewall has now completely fixed my "connection problem".

Why that works is unclear; it could be a RAM, port, or pb check issue. Running without a firewall isn't recommended, but it's the only way I can play without constant connection warnings and disconnects.

Hope this helps someone else.

Same here. I MAY have fixed it by turning sound quality to low (EAX still activated, don't know if there even is EAX on low).

Why that should fix a connection problem is beyond my understanding

Try this solution from SnipingCoward. Worked for me. Ignore the fact that it's for a Belkin router - I have a US Robotics and it worked.

Sgt. C do you have the solution to the problem when it kicks you for no reason back to the server list and says connection to the server has been lost it only does it to some servers, other servers are fine. plz get back to this!

This fix only for dualcore&Quadcore systems:
Try opening upp the taskmanager after you have started the game and logged in to your account.
Then select the Bf2 and its related Prossesses (e500 and pr) and set theyr afinity to just Cpu0.
This solved my connection problems completely!

Yeah, it seems that this solved mine too - but I am not sure completely.
I followed these instructions: BF2S Forums / OMFG "Your connection to the server has been lost.": downloaded the tool imagecfg.exe and let it modify my bf2.exe
Everything works fine - i thought... now I can play for several minutes and PunkBuster kicks me out: bf2.exe mismatch
This game is realy driving me mad. Maybe s.o. could upload his orginal, unmodified bf2.exe to help me out.

Greets,
s!x

Protip: Never allow ANY third party software to edit/modefy your EXE`s.

Secondly, try the Cpu trick, it does not give ANY drop in preformance what so EVER..

A similar approach which did the trick (at least for me) with disconnects, and which also solved some massive performance issue in combination with 2xopteron(dualcore):

1. add the /usepmtimer switch to your boot.ini - works for XP/W2k3:
(use at your own risk; at least make a backup version of the boot.ini before altering)

example altered boot.ini

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOW S
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\Windows="Micro soft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /usemptimer


2. set pb_sleep 500 (default 60; max. 500)
