Rainbow Six Vegas 2 "Failed to Initialize Network Service"
I've been playing this game online since last year and had alot of problems. Now i came up with this annoying "failed to initialize network" error since last week whenever i tried to login to the online server. I saw many threads regarding this issue and all the answers to that posts are same, saying the firewall/Antivirus might blocking the program or Port forwarding **** which is not a solution to this at all. I have a wireless connection so i don't think i have to deal with this port forwarding thing, even though i played this game soo many times online and i never get this error message till then. I never changed any settings in my laptop and now im getting this message over and over again. Moreover i do not have any antivirus or internet security installed in to my laptop. I tried switching off the firewall but not helping at all. Please Ubisoft, we play hella lot of money to buy games from you, & ur customer support isn't making us satisfy at all. Please do respond to me with a fix as soon as possible. I MISS PLAYING VERSUS!!!! -.-
Moved to R6 tech forums. I recommend you also notify Ubisoft Support of this issue through http://www.ubi.com/US/Support/Default.aspx
Yes i did that before posting the thread here. & thank you.

It is because you are running the game through a wireless network that it is very important that you follow the steps on forwarding the ports that are necessary to connect properly to the online server. The wireless router that you are behind has a firewall that can cause server connection errors and issues.
Please follow the steps listed in the link below. If you do not know how to open the ports on your router you may refer to http://portforward.com or you can contact your ISP's support.
