Client timed out
I was playing with a friend when this happened to me, he didn't have any problem.
I can't play one map of a campaign without being kicked out with this message and after that I can't join the same game, I'm kicked out again with the same message.
I've tried deleting Clientregistry.blob but it doesn't solve anything.

Am I the only one having this problem?
Does anyone know how to solve it?

Have you checked to see if your router is resetting its self?
It didnt time me out but it raised my ping.
all i had to do was move my lan cable to another port.

I don't have any problems while playing Team Fortress 2, it only happens while I play L4D2.

Had this issue the other day. A few things I tried to fix it.

1. Disable steam cloud for L4D2. Didn't work for me but others say it did.

2. Verify integrity of game cache

3. Go to your steam directory and delete the file called ClientRegistry.blob and restart steam.

4.(This one worked for me) While in game, open console and type cl_updaterate 50 Sometimes it's set at 100. Turning it down to 50 didn't seem to have any gameplay changes with me. Seemed smooth still. So give these things a try and let me know if they work.

Thank you very much, BoneheaD, I didn't know how to do the first step you said, so I begun with the second one and this afternoon I played a full campaign.

Before posting here I looked for solutions in google, so I'd already deleted ClientRegistry.blob.

Finally, I didn't understand the fourth step. How do I open console? I don't know what "console" is.

Sorry for the late reply. your thread got buried. Console is opened by pressing the ~ key above TAB. If it doesn't do anything, go into options in game, and enable the developer console. Then hit that key and type in cl_updaterate 50
