[FIXED] Racenet keeps becoming unavailable, it's costing me a fortune! :(

Most of this week, i've been getting dropped from racenet, usually right after the stage has loaded and the screen fades before showing the start race and/or the car rolling up to the line.  It just insta drops back to the main menu, stating that racenet is unavailable! :(  If i close the game and start up again, it's there and lets me into online events.  

Just tried to do the wager today (sat) bet max and then went to load, again, finishes loading the stage and drops back saying it's unavailable.  Reload the game, my money is gone and i can't enter the event because it thinks i tried it.

See this thread for further diagnosis and the fix: http://forums.codemasters.com/discussion/37102/game-looses-connection-to-steam-and-to-racenet

Sheesh, really?
Before we do that, anything to edit first?

Some more info; dailies work fine, daily 2 regularly messes up.  Weekly 1 works fine, although slow to talk to racenet, weekly 2 is lumpy and has now totally failed, would not let me finish last weeks.

Hello, try uninstalling the game by deleting Local Content when right clicking on the game in Steam Library then delete the DiRT Rally folder in Steam\steamapps\common\ then install the game.

OK @DeputyDiRT , i did that, and i just lost another 200k after hitting shakedown, game fades to black, but instead of the car lining up, i get the main menu, racenet not available.

Hi mate, try to keep your internet conection as much free as you can (no torrent, p2p, ftp, direct downloads...) in order to avoid possible time outs and such... I dont know, just guessing.

Are you using cable or wifi? whats your internet bandwidth?

OK, i did this, thought it was fixed, did tonight's daily (though it rarely dies doing the regular daily) and then went to do the owners (escortMKII) spend a little time tweaking the car setup, then went to shakedown, paused after fade to black, dropped back to main menu, racenet unavailable :(
