Downloadad and installed the game this morning, and had a quick go on a few servers. Worked alright. Went to play it again this afternoon, can't get onto any servers. It just displays the 'Joining Servers....' message, and that's it. Have tried about a dozen servers, no luck.

I tried a solution posted on Youtube, which didn't work. I've tried stopping Origin via task manager, running CCleaner, then re-starting Origin and BF3. I tried re-starting my PC. Any idea how to get it working again? Or is this just the way BF3 normally is?

Specs?

Could be a firewall issue with the game being blocked or punkbuster could be doing stupid things.

Just tested my copy and it worked fine so the servers are up.

Punkbuster........ Good suggestion. I blanked it in the server filter options and got straight onto the first server I tried.

That was the only server I was able to get onto, though. Now I can't get back on that server, or any other server.

what browser are you using? I had Chrome set as default and it wouldn't work.

went to battlelog on IE and I was able to get onto a server. Might be a browser issue.

Firefox.

It's just unpredictable as to whether it works or not. Still, it was cheap, and it went to charities!

Has nothing to do with the browser. Make sure your firewall ports are opened properly and your punkbuster is updated.

I can get on the servers alright now, but after about fifteen to twenty minutes gameplay I get, Game disconnected. Your connection to the server timed out.

Every time.

Any solution to that?

It's a shame, because I'm really starting to enjoy playing this game.

Try turning your firewall completely off and see if it does it
