SRCDS Steam group

Server Steam Items Problem
OS: Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx)
RAM: 1gb
Game: Team fortress 2
Start command:
echo "Starting TF2 Server"
sleep 1
screen -A -m -d -S tf2 //home/gameserver/srcds/orangebox/srcds_run -console -game "tf" +fps_max "1000" +map "cp_dustbowl" +maxplayers "24" -autoupdate -tickrate "66"

I have a linux ubuntu server that runs a srcds Dedicated Team Fortress 2 server. It runs great, great ping, great fps etc. However, It seems to lose connection to steam servers often. All ports are open (for troubleshooting), talked to isp provider and they don't cap any ports(or limit any ports), and normally have sourcemod/metamod installed, but i disabled those to try to troubleshoot the problem.

The exact thing that is displayed at the end of loading the server is:

exec: couldn't exec cp_dustbowl.cfg
Could not establish connection to Steam servers.

***then after about 5 minutes***

Connection to Steam servers successful.
VAC secure mode is activated.
Current item schema is up-to-date with version B9FB34CB.

***then after another 5-10 minutes***

Connection to Steam servers lost.

I can't figure this out and the only help I could find online is it is a port related issue... but the ports are open cause if they weren't the server would never get a steam connection...
