i had this problem as well with BATTLEFIELD 2 demo.........
after about an hour of ONLINE play......i get disconnected and when i
try to get back in it says.......
there was an error listening on a socket.
then when i logoff to desktop i CANT USE INTERNET EXPLORER ANYMORE
until i restart the computer!!!
i have done everything including reinstalling windows AND IT STILL
i notice problems with DAWN OF WAR ONLINE as well.
my comp is P4, 3.0, 768ram
ATI 9800 PRO
xp pro sp2
THE ONLY SOLUTION WAS A HARD DISK WIPE/REINSTALL WINDOWS.
IT WORKS FINE NOW......must have been a virus or image damage.

I have Zone Alarm to monitor all internet traffic (as well as a firewall)
Sometimes when I have problems for an application accessing the internet, I tell Zone Alarm to "allow" that application to access the internet. Somehow it clears the port (socket) that Battlefield2 is trting to access and it lets it access the internet. This is an alternative in trying to figure out which ports are open, etc....
So...if you want to try this, you will have to install zone alarm and when BF2 tries to access the internet, click "allow" and it will automatically open the necessary port...
It worked for me for this and other applications.

It is most likely to be your firewall causing the problem.
