What exactly happens? Does it just take you back to the lobby? Freeze? Any error messages?

Which Windows are you using? If Win Vista or Win7, make sure to run it in admin mode. If XP, use Win98 compatibility mode.
Make sure that the file wsock32.dll is not in your RA2 folder.

If you're quick matching, you do know it times out after a certain amount of time has passed.

ra2.exe
game.exe
mph.exe

I think you only need to run game.exe in compatability mode since its the main program.
