Linux Client Connection difficulties

I have once succesfully connected to an online game today
Sometimes it just hangs on a black screen after I click join or it can have
the UT2003_<whatever> message in center of screen. It will remain like this
for 30 minutes (max time I tested it( and the cable modem snd/rx lights go
crazy with no HDD accesses happening. When I eventually hit esc and then exit
the game the console window I started the demo from is filled with the
following message repeated over and over again.
RecvFrom returned SOCKET_ERROR 111
Sometimes when connecting to passworded servers if the above error isnt
happening I get to the point where I enter the password and hit retry and
then it just appears to loop back to the very start where the nVidia logo
appear and the guy bashes through it and then I am back at the main menu.
When this occurs if I exit the game I am not returned to a console prompt but
need to manually kill the process as it hasn't exited correctly.
Please advise I had a great time the one time it connected
