If you go into your task manager and the services tab, you'll find PnkBstrA and PnkBstrB. The "losing key packets 9003", is because PnkBstrB is dying all the time.

You'll have to start the service PnkBstrB in the task manager, then go over to processes and give the PnkBstrB.exe process a high priority. If you get the losing key packets 9005 as well, you'll have to give the PnkBstrA.exe process a high priority as well. If you can't find the processes but only the services, make sure that you have checked the box where it says it will show processes for ALL the user on the system.

Hope it helps.

Have you tried logging into windows as administrator and then playing the game?

I'm always the administrator. First I got the PunkbusterB problem and now is this. BF just pisses me off.

Any help from EA???? Nothing from them. I bought 11 games from EA and origin. AND I WILL NEVER BUY SOMETHING MORE FROM THEM. NEVER becouse they dont care about their clients.
Thank You very much EA and ORIGIN.
I go to Steam.

Getting it as well.

Here's what I tried
turned off AV and firewall....nope
Restart router....nope
restart system...nope
upgrade to latest drivers...nope
did a packet loss check to the server I just got kicked from...nope(no packet loss, on multiple tests)
changed ethernet cable...nope
completely uninstalled pb, manually cleaned all pb related files out, rebooted reinstalled pb, and updated BF3 pb files with PBsetup, rebooted....nope
I'm off to try the high priority thing...don't know why it would need that there's plenty of beef in this system...I'll be back if it doesn't work out

Edit: Well what do you know I was able to play after doing the high priority trick. The fact that this needs to be done at all is horrendous though.

Here's the system specs:
Case
Thermaltake Armor Series VA8003BWS Black Full Tower Case w/ 25CM Fan
Cooling
Noctua NH-U12P SE1366 120mm SSO CPU Cooler
3 x Thermaltake DuraMax 12 AF0060 120mm Case Fan
4 x Thermaltake TT-9025A-2B 90mm Case Fan
Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD5
Processor
Intel Core i7-920 BX80601920
Memory
2 x OCZ Platinum 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 OCZ3P1600LV6GK
Storage
Pioneer Black Blu-Ray Burner BDR-203BKS
PLEXTOR 24X DVD Writer Black PX-880SA-26
Intel X25-M SSDSA2MH080G1 SSD
6 x WD Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB
WD Caviar Black WD2001FASS 2TB
Power
BFG Tech EX-1200 BFGR1200WEXPSU
GPU
XFX FX-797A-TNFC Radeon HD 7970
SAPPHIRE 21197-00-40G Radeon HD 7970
Displays
BenQ G2400WD
Lenovo ThinkVision L2440x
SAMSUNG 2443BW

Now how in the hell that rig doesn't have enough power to go around doesn't make any sense at all. This has to be poor coding on the part of Evenbalance pure and simple, that said I'm glad I was able to find the fix for it but I shouldn't have to "fix" anything. Evenbalance needs to work on this as I see via a simple google search that I'm not the only one experiencing this issue by far.

This has worked for me twice. Uninstall Punkbuster, reboot. Install punkbuster, update punkbuster, Reboot.

Worked like a charm 2 times for me, but remember... REBOOT, without the reboot It won't work.

only today restart pc

For me it looks that you have connection problems

Have you tried enabling these ports http://help.ea.com/article/online-ports-for-battlefield-3 [help.ea.com] ?

Disable UPnP on the router and pc ?
http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/forum/threadview/2832654347923153950/ [battlelog.battlefield.com]

Virusprograms- firewalls - Internet security software programs, Some of these will block PnkBstrA.exe, PnkBstrB.exe,
go to settings in virusprograms - firewalls - Internet security software, and go to allow list/ignore list and add them there
