It's very frustrating, there's always a red light at the window, but when I enter the café, I can't connect to anyone...

It's the same for 2 days now.

I have noticed this too. I think this happens when somebody is playing but cannot be connected to. In which case the game skips that player.

Perhaps such a player leaves a "shadow" on the Master Server. I do restart it every few days.

I had that too. After disabling Windows Firewall and AVG antivirus, it eventually worked. I sat down and minimized the game to go do something else. After 15 minutes I heard the sound of someone sitting down, I maximized the game again and voilà! Someone was there.

After that I reenabled the firewall and antivirus, and it's been working even with those on ever since.

Glad to hear it worked in the end. Frustrated that it's so much trouble. I wonder if it was a coincidence that it worked (or didn't) or if your switching of the firewall actually made a difference.
