Guys. I found the solution to this issue as a temporary workaround. Its ridiculous, but clearly whatever they changed last patch has screwed with network code or somehow stepped backwards in how the game is run to change / fix issues others had while introducing new problems like 4001.

All you have to do is this:

Right click the launcher.exe on your desktop
Go to properties
Click the tab called 'Compatibility'
check the box
Make sure Win XP SP3 is in the dropdown
Click OK

See image example:

For whatever reason, this works. I could not see a server list at all until this was done.

Bioware rep: My workaround doesn't really solve the issue. It is just a bandaid for something that is clearly wrong. I suggest you forward this information to the right people so they can see why its working in a compat mode for some users and others on WIN7 64 its no issue.
