    I know there is a Call of Duty 3 thread below, but it turned into a lengthy consoles verses PCs debate.

    So, I was wondering if anyone had an trouble joining matches online? I use a router, so I did the whole port forwarding thing – it improved things but not much. Anyone one had experiences getting round this?

    I have no issues at all now – the first day on my 360 things were a little strange but the next day all the issues were gone and now I have no trouble at all.

    And I too use a router.

    Check your NAT settings on your 360. Go into Networking & Test connection.

    NAT should be OPEN if it's MODERATE then that is your primary problem

    There's loads of talk on the CelticSnipers forums & about COD3. It seems if your NAT settings are moderate it makes it difficult to enter some games against certain people.

    There was a similar problem with Chromehounds. Certain games seem to require NAT to be open more strictly than others.

    The only way of making your NAT setting open is to get your ISP to give you a fixed IP address.

    Are ye down in Cork Grizzly? Are you with Eircom / NTL / BT ? or with a crowd like Permanet. We are with Permanet and in order to get a fixed IP address, we just asked them and they gave it to us.

    It solved all my problems with connections to certain games.

    Good luck.

    Hey RumorUser,

    I'm up in the big smoke :p

    I got it working – found the xbox live port forwarding settings in a drop down list preloaded in the (Eircom) router. I also changed my firewall from Medium to low as it says network gaming works better this way. Been playing for the last 4 hours and its sweet as f**k!

    Thanks for the reply.
