Cannot connect to internet servers for cod2 pc

Switched internet providers from rcn to verizon and had installed a new modem router. The tech could not get any servers to list from the server menu. My saved servers work fine and I can play the servers I have saved. The tech thinks its something to do with a port. On his cd rom disc that was loaded into the modem there was no cod2 listed but there were about 20 other modern games available HELP

I keep getting disconnected from the Internet. I have tried, Wired Connection, Enable UPNP, Putting router into DMZ setting, Having no WPA, Disconecting from media servers, Ive had engineers round to...


When I had that problem, everything was fine with my PC connection but for some reason my PS3 would have problems with it. The 1st time it happened I told the company I was using that they needed to send me a new modem/router after I got the new everything was working fine for a while and then the same thing happened. So what I'm saying is that it could be the modem/router or like mine it was the service..

The 2 companies that have problems with gaming is Frontier(Fios) it use to be Verizon, and Clear Internet. I'm not saying anything bad about either one they both work great for working online just not gaming. Hope this helps.

Ps3 help


the ps3 has a built in wireless modem. if you do not have a router, you might not be able to connect your ps3 and laptop at the same time.

turn everything off.

now in this order, turn on your ps3 and connect to your wireless verizon modem after it comes back on. do not turn your laptop on, since your modem probably will not give out two dynamic addresses. does the ps3 work now?

Need help with wireless router and wireless verison card.


You need to bridge your modem first before you can use your netgear wireless router. You can reconfigure your netgear without bridging your modem and it will work, but the connection will not be as stable. You'll only need your Verizon password and username if your connection type is PPPoE. If your connection is DHCP, you don't need your username and password anymore, but you may have to ensure that your connection type inside the netgear router is set for DHCP as well. If you're a PPPoE, then you don't have to worry, even if you don't know your username and password, you can give Verizon a call and they will reset your password and give you your username after you've verified your information with them so you don't have to worry about anything. Whatever issue it is, they can help you with it. I suggest you have them bridge your modem first before using your netgear. If I know the brand and model number of your modem with verizon I can definitely give you instructions here on how to bridge your modem properly. Just let me know.

Need help with best connection type for college student in dorm


The enhaced version just give more range of signal over the normal dynex, regarding the internet provider it depends because sometimes you'll need a password and user to connect to the wireless signal. The dynex is used to connect from a cable signal (RJ-45)internet and then it will transfer the connection to wireless so it can be use from any laptop with wireless connection. So for example you DSL internet connection is a cable (RJ-45) then you connect that cable to the dynex router, then the router will automatically transmit the signal to wireless so any nearby pc can connect to it. If the laptop doesn't have wireless, then you'll have to buy a card to be able to connect to wireless signal or you could by also a (RJ-45 straight-through cable Cat 5e) to connect from one of the ports from the DYNEX to the laptop. Hope it helps.

Hi mon3ymik3,

1. First of all, connect your routers Internet/WAN port to your cable/DSL modem.
2. Configure your router with the settings your Internet Service Provider gave you. The router usually needs to be configured via either a install disc or it's internal webpage. Look up it's default IP and type it into your browser after: http://

(If you don't know them, call their tech. support).

3. Make sure the internet connection works.

4. Look up the settings for a DHCP server and make sure it's on. This will give all the devices connected to the router an IP address within the range or scope you set in there.

5. Connect your PS3 to one of the other ports of the router.

6. Go to your PS3's network settings, make a new connection and set everything to Automatic. Your PS3 will "ask" your router for it's settings.

7. Run a connection test.

8. If test succeeded you should be on your way.

P.S. If you need help configuring your router I will need more information about it. It's brand, it's type etc.

Tell me if it worked.

Greetings,

Theres a problem connecting with ea server for fifa 2008 i have a router


Please try to power down your modem and router. Also the PS2.

Wait for 1 minute.

Restart the modem, router, and then the PS2. This may help, if you have a simple problem.

Your next step would be to verify your connection with another device, such as a laptop, etc.

Good Luck!

How do i connect to xbox live with a router


Shared connection with a modem and a router
1. Turn the modem off, and then turn it back on. Then turn the router power off, and then turn it back on. This is also known as power cycling the modem and the router.

Power cycle the modem first, and then power cycle the router. To power cycle these devices, you should follow your manufacturer’s specific instructions. Here are some general steps:
a. Remove the power supply from your device.
b. Leave the device unplugged for 15 to 30 seconds.
c. Reattach the power supply to the modem by following the device manufacturer’s instructions.
d. Wait several minutes for the device to start and to establish a connection with your broadband provider.
e. Verify that the modem shows the appropriate power and Internet connection indicator lights by following the manufacturer’s instructions.
2. If power cycling your modem and router does not resolve the problem, try connecting the Xbox 360 console to Xbox LIVE by using the modem only. This eliminates any configuration problems on the router. If this setup works without the router, there is probably a configuration issue with the router. See the manufacturer’s documentation that is included with the router or contact the technical support group for the router.
3. Verify that your router's Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) service has been enabled. DHCP enables the router to assign IP addresses to the computers and consoles on your network when you go online. If you need help with this, see the manufacturer’s documentation that is included with the router or contact the technical support group for the router.
4. If you manually entered an IP address, gateway, subnet mask and/or DNS servers in the Network Settings area of the Xbox Dashboard , verify that it they are correct. At this point, you can also set your IP settings to Automatic. To do this, follow these steps:
a. Move to the System area.
b. Select Network Settings.
c. Select Automatic.
5. If your ISP requires Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) settings, try connecting to only the modem after you enter these settings in the Network Settings area of the Xbox Dashboard. Network Settings area of the Xbox Dashboard.

Note Some ISPs may require Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/connecttolive/xbox360/resources/glossary.htm#ethernet) (PPPoE) settings, This means that you may need settings such as a username and password in order to gain access to your ISP’s network. If you are unsure whether you have to enter these settings, please contact your ISP support group. At this point, if you can connect directly to the modem, see your router documentation to configure the PPPoE settings correctly on the router.
6. If you are receiving an IP conflict error in the More Info section of the Xbox Dashboard, turn off all devices on the network. Try to connect to Xbox LIVE with only the modem and Xbox 360 console connected.

If this works, there may be a configuration issue on the router’s Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server. DHCP enables the router to assign temporary IP addresses to the computers on your network when you go online. If you need help with understanding DHCP or the configuration, see the manufacturer’s documentation that is included with the router or contact the technical support group for the router.
Shared connection with a gateway device (combined modem and router)
1. Make sure that the gateway is turned on. A gateway integrates a high-speed Internet modem with a router.
2. Verify that there is network activity by looking for the sequence of blinking lights on your gateway that generally indicate Wide Area Network (WAN), Local Area Network (LAN), and connected power status.
Note These names will vary from model to model.
3. Turn the gateway device off, and then turn it back on. This is also known as power cycling the gateway. To power cycle this device, you should follow your manufacturer’s specific instructions. Here are some general steps:
a. Remove the power supply from your device.
b. Leave the device unplugged for 15 to 30 seconds.
c. Reattach the power supply to the gateway by following the device manufacturer’s instructions.
d. Wait for the device to start and to establish a connection with your broadband provider.
e. Verify that the gateway shows the appropriate power and Internet connection indicator lights by following the manufacturer’s instructions.
4. The IP address that you entered in to the Network Settings area of the Xbox Dashboard may be incorrect. Be sure that this address is correct, or set your IP settings to Automatic in the Xbox Dashboard.
5. If you are receiving an IP conflict error in the More Info section of the Xbox Dashboard, turn off all devices on the network. Try to connect to Xbox LIVE with only the modem and Xbox 360 console connected.

If this works, there may be a configuration issue on the router’s Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server. DHCP enables the router to assign temporary IP addresses to the computers on your network when you go online. If you need help with understanding DHCP or the configuration, see the manufacturer’s documentation that is included with the router or contact the technical support group for the router.
Shared connection with Microsoft Windows Internet Connection Sharing
Shared connection with Microsoft Windows Internet Connection Sharing
1. Verify that you can surf the Internet from your PC. If you cannot surf the Internet, there is probably a problem with your Internet connection. Contact your ISP for support.

If you are using a USB modem to connect to the Internet, the modem will be listed in the "Dial-up" window as the connecter that you are sharing and that you have configured. To verify that Internet Connection Sharing configured it correctly, use the following steps:
a. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
b. In Control Panel, double-click Network Connections.
c. Right-click your broadband connection, and then click Properties.
d. In the Properties dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
e. Click to select the Allow other users to connect through this computer’s internet connection check box.
f. Click OK.
Ethernet Properties
2. Power cycle the modem. If the modem does not have an on and off switch, unplug the modem from the power outlet. You cannot follow this step if you are using a USB modem. Instead, go to the next step. You must follow this step if you are switching the modem between the Xbox 360 console and a computer.
3. On the computer, click Start, click Run, type ncpa.cpl, and then click OK.
4. On the View menu, click Tiles.
5. If the connection is listed as Firewalled, the firewall may have to be configured. See your firewall documentation.
6. Enter manual settings in the Xbox 360 Dashboard for IP address, subnet mask, DNS address and gateway and test the connection: To edit the settings:
a. In the Xbox 360 dashboard, move to the System section.
b. Select Network Settings.
c. Select Edit Settings.
d. Enter the following:
• IP Address : 192.168.0.2
• Subnet mask : 255.255.255.0
• Default Gateway : 192.168.0.1
• DNS server (Primary): 192.168.0.1
• DNS server (Secondary): 192.168.0.1Xbox 360: Test Xbox LIVE connection fails at IP address
