Is there a firewall issue with your new wifi source?

Same here, any chance you recently updated NVidea drivers? That's the only thing I can think of that's changed for me.

It was randomly crashing when I was playing.
This fixed it:
1. Go on your list of games.
2. Right click this game; 'Portal 2'.
3. Click Properties.
4. Click the 'Local Files' tab on the window that pops up.
5. Click the fourth button, reading 'VERIFY INTEGRITY OF GAME CACHE'.
6. Let it do what's needed.
7. Done!
