    Same here mate, i can connect to a mate who lives a mile away or so, but i cant connect to my mate who lives just up the road. the mates that plays cod5 a lot with me, we cant get into each other's parties, its really pissing me off. We can invite each other to a game, but we always seem to go into the middle of a match, when we finally get into the same lobby, we always have to go on opposite teams, its really annoying.

My friend and I had the same problem, he just had to sort out his NAT settings. You need a PC to do this. Theres a youtube link:

It just means you have a sort of secret firewall built into your computer. I hope you have XP because I dont know how to sort it out on Vista

What's happen to my ps 3? have error d5027


That error basically means your network connection to the PS3 network servers is unstable. Given the time of year and the number of kids that have snow days and are at home, and parents staying home working across the internet, the most likely cause is simple network congestion. You should notice this issue go away early morning when fewer people are online, and get worse as the day progresses. In some cases, you can set up a VPN or Virtual Private Network connection that can help. If you want to try that, go to this link http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-Home-Support/Using-Virtual-Private-Network-VPN-To-Defeat-Network-Error-D50027/td-p/44868077 for instructions on setting it up.

How do i turn on my ps3 rock candy wireless controller


After installing batteries in the controller and inserting the usb stick into your PS3, hold down the home button (the round middle most button with a house on it) for a few seconds until the light on the controller illuminates. This is your indicator your controller is paired with your PS3 and should be assignable and usable at this point.

Serial number for fifa manager 11 saying its invalid


I've also had this, I think since they have brought out Fifa Manager 13 or planned to they seem to have dumped all the serial authorisation codes at solidshield for fifa manager 11 or something - currently in the process of trying to get it sorted with EA online help - which I'd suggest you try through the EA website but expect a long delay in answering. So far all they have done is given me the digital version of the product - which wasn't what I was having difficulty with, Origin recognises the product code it is Solidshield which fails to authorise. Still awaiting further response from EA help (5 days of owning a game I can't play so far and have only received a 15% Origin discount off older games.) Brilliant...
