I tried updating mine when that happened. Didn't work.

I redownloaded punkbuster from the website (without uninstalling the first one) and updated it and added battlefield 3 and clicked update again. That worked for me.

Im getting a similar error:
"Game disconnected: you were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: PunkBuster kicked player '*****' (for 2 minutes) ... Violation (IGNORING QUERIES) #9006 "

It's only started today. Happens on every server a few mins after joining.
I've downloaded the manual punkbuster files from here http://www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=dl-bf3.php\ [evenbalance.com]
and also run pbsetup and added BF3+checked for updates (it downloaded some server version stuff)

Still hasnt fixed it :(

And neither EA nor DICE will ever give a damn about our problems.

Having the same issue, but with "no packet flow" since the patch on December.

Could you give me a link for that?

As of today I get instantly disconnected.....doesn't even get to the loadout menu.

"Game disconnected: you were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: PunkBuster kicked player 'gorerat666' (for 0 minutes) ... RESTRICTION: Service Communication Failure: PnkBstrA.exe"

I tried everything i could find:
First I updated punkbuster.....no results.
Then I did the "repair installation" in origin.....no results.
Next I uninstalled punkbuster, reinstalled it, added BF3....no results.
And i did the "check for update" in the punkbuster program regarding BF3. It started downloading and updating files for a minute, so i thougt i could be on to something. But yet again....NO RESULTS.

As I'm sure you all agree, this is super annoying! I have (I think) everything in order and up to date. But for some crappy reason I can't play it.

I've tried the official fix from Punk Buster, from their post at http://help.ea.com/article/battlefield-3-punkbuster-error [help.ea.com] but of course that didn't work either. I guess we just have to wait for them to fix the game we spent serious money on. Quality Assurance, you are obviously not a department of either EA or PB. The compatiblity adjustment doesn't work either.....
