Since the release of 1.2.1b Valve has changed their TF2 server files in a way that prevents BG2 from being compatible with them.
I think the only way to host BG2 now is to use the console version of srcds instead of STEAM's server client.
There's a pretty easy tutorial for the console srcds here:

Edit: Also, if you do decide to use the console version, remember to update your server with "-game orangebox".

fa⋅ce⋅tious  [fuh-see-shuhs] –adjective
1. not meant to be taken seriously or literally: a facetious remark.
2. amusing; humorous.
3. lacking serious intent; concerned with something nonessential, amusing, or frivolous: a BG2 developer.

is the internet cord full plug into the telephon connector or the wall? sometimes the internet problem come because of the cord not fully link.
