Here's S0L's reply from the "Hello from SUMO Part 2" thread:

We've actually added longer timeouts, extra syncing states and more to alleviate the previous problems so if you're getting dropped connections, chances are this is there is genuinely an issue connecting to other players.

Try the following...

1. Restart Steam, this will ensure you've received the update to start with. Sometimes Steam doesn't see an grab the update unless you do this.

2. Check you've got nothing running in the background that is consuming any upload bandwidth. Most internet connections have high download bandwidth, but limited upload bandwidth. For example if you are downloading torrents, or have some other form of software that uses peer to peer downloads (Blizzards WOW updater for example) it could be already maxing out your upload bandwidth, meaning the game can't send it's networking information to other players. This can include programs like Skype that also consume bandwidth even when idling.

3. Check Windows or other Firewall software hasn't blocked the game. Sometimes, Windows will decide to block applications via it's built in Firewall. If that happens the game can receive data but can't send it...

4. Check you have a good fast connection to the internet. Try one of the various internet speed test sites. Sometimes your connection speed can fall for no apparent reason and all you need to do is reboot your router.

There is a good chance one of the above will get you up and running again.
