If all else fails
1) Close down any apps accessing the internet.
2) Start Warband windowed and go to the MP page where you can click 'Join a server'.
3) Start Wireshark.
4) On Window 7 my wireless adaptor is listed a simply "Microsoft", so Start capture on interface: Microsoft (On XP I think it listed the adaptor type)
5) Click on Join a server.
You will see a load of coloured entries showing up on the Wireshark screen, this process normally completes in a few seconds.
6) Click Capture, Stop. File, Saveas, etc.
You could zip and attach whole log to the bug report, its not very big or look for the "GET /handlerservers.ashx?" one Daegoth requested, right-click and select 'Follow TCP Stream'.

Solution 1: I do not know what all that about winsock reset is
Solution 2: Done and still does not work, plus it is not my internet because I have it installed twice (steam and non steam) and one works and one does not. I explained here,126709.0.html
Solution 3: Does not work. And I may add mine never gets "stuck" it says retrieving server list then retrieving server list (180) and after about 10 seconds that goes away and then there is nothing. No servers or retrieving.
Solution 4, 5 and 6: do not work.
:sad: Can someone help me? Read the link for a full explanation of my situation. Have not attempted the last resort yet partly because to me it makes no sense.

fix this please Devs, i'm tired of playing on one half -decent native server...


with going into your files and changeing max number of connections i found that lowering it to 20 accutaly made it wortse causeing me from getting about half the servers to none. While increasing the number made me find the servers fast (much faster) how ever still did not fix the problem


after trying all i still have this annoying bug where i see only 40ish servers out of what people say should be like 200?


I did all the RGL stuff but nothing worked. im gonna try just restarting computer. its been on standby for like 5 weeks.


I only have an issue with seeing servers my friends make and vice versa, they can't see the ones I make. I can see quite a lot of other servers though, mostly the dedicated ones but a few non-dedicated ones too. I tried solutions 4 and 5, and I checked my firewalls and stuff and they weren't blocking the program or anything.

It's kind of annoying, as I can see pretty much every dedicated server I think, but if me and a friend just want to host a little friendly duel we can't :sad:
Also, I'm not sure I understand most of the other solutions.


Evening, i've also encountered problems when refreshing server list. i keep getting  a shortlist some are from russia, some from spain.

But i just can't seem to find the server am trying to find and i know its up.

Ive tried alll the solutions but none worked. However yesterday i only had like 38 but today i have like around 45.

any new solutions?

Thank you.


Mine only shows me 5 empty servers that are pretty much empty all the time. AWESOME! :grin:
Any help would be appreciated but not expecting anything considering the number of replies the older posts on this thread are getting.
