Whenever i try to join a multiplayer server on BF3 I get this error message from the game manager:

Game disconnected: your connection to the server timed out.

I've searched online and found out that I should stop UPnP Device Host" and the "SSDP Discovery" processes. I also turned network discovery off, but when i did that the Windows Firewall (which I disable because I have Norton) got automatically enabled.

Even after i Did so it is still not working

So do you or do you not still have the problem? – badp Mar 16 '12 at 22:30
this happens anyway. Try 3 of 4 times. If it always happens :/ welcome to bf3s stupid webpage interface. – Doomsknight Mar 17 '12 at 1:00
i've still got the problem and it happens every single time – Jk. Mar 17 '12 at 15:40
I had similar problems and the source of problems was my router. After I upgraded the firmware, it works flawlessly (for now) – Sentry Dec 3 '12 at 17:45

Try turning off your router and leave it off for ten seconds and turn it back on it might take a while completely turn back on. Just wait til all the lights stop blinking. I've had this problem before.
