            This fix doesn't work. For me, atleast.

            Things I've already tried:
            Removing DOTA\Steam to reinstall again
            Modifying registry
            Modifying internet configurations
            Dota settings screw-over
            Disabling firewall
            Not a single thing works. I can't play multiplayer, I can't play with bots, I can't even play tutorial missions nor watch games.

            Please help

            P.S. My friend got 2 accounts with DOTA2, both accounts have the same problem.

            P.S.S. Also, this is NOT some "router" or "internet provider" issue, it appears right after the update went live and noone of my friends can do a thing about it.

            Apparently, with update from 21.03.13 Valve fixed this bug, all you need to do is to delete everything BUT Steam.exe, steam.dll, gcf files and other game files, delete everything in dota 2 beta folder for exception of all the *.vpk files.

            You even can turn the network quality back to high.
