I manage to login and I can see people talk but I can't talk, join or start a game, what's going on?

This is a problem for windows users with Nvidia chipset. They receive the server messages but can't send some back. It's a network card problem.

Here is a method to get rid of the problem:

  1. Go to "Start" > "Control Panel".
  2. Double click to open "Network Connections".
  3. Right click on your network adapter and go to properties (should be labeled as "NVIDIA nForce Ethernet Controller").
  4. Click on "Configure" and go to the "Advanced" tab.
  5. Select "Checksum Offload" and choose disable in the window to the right. It may be called Hardware Checksumming or a Checksum of some type.
  6. Click on Ok.

Thanks to Phoe for that fix.
