Already typed this once, but oh well.

To fix the connection expired problem, type in console the following: cl_connectionAttempts "60"

You will then be attempting to join a server for 60 seconds instead of the default 10. I haven't found a way to change the default setting, so you have to type it every time you start MP for now.

if you've had a previous call of duty you'll know that this problem has always been there...

Wow. Either your internet is down. Or you need to filter the servers correctly.

or you can keep typing: /reconnect which is what i do. i tried this setting and it seems to reset itself when you close and re-open the game

It might not be your problem. The call of duty 4 servers are really buggy right now.
