    I do, has anyone complained to Activision or Infinity Ward, it can't be live, as it works with other games, and it's not the voice comm chat, cos i don't use that and it's still screwed.

  • COD4playa123 Feb 09, 2008

    your problem is probobly because your NAT is strict or moderate. on the xbox 360 dashboard, go to the last one, and test your xbox live connection. if it says strict or moderate, you have a problem. to fix this you need to go inside your modem. get your instruction manuel and find the code to get into the settings. once your there you can do several things to fix it. what i did was enable my UPnP, or something like that. for other very useful tips go to xboxlivetheguide.com. i hope it works for you!

  • LUCAS1472580 Feb 09, 2008

    yea my problem is worse because right as i join a game the screen freezes but the xbox doesnt since i can eject the disc and end up at eh dashboard and this only happens on COD4

    it tells me i cannot connect to the host who is my friend but i can connect to others who are not my friend

  • Anonymous Feb 17, 2008

    Hey I'm having the same problem too!
    But it says that I was booted from the lobby. The odder thing is, my friend brought over his memory card. I loaded his gamertag and we could play CoD4 online with his gamertag but not mine.

  • thenry14 Feb 19, 2008

     mine just gets into the game for about 2 seconds and it says i get kicked, and the lobby is closed, its starting to really piss me off

  • RexatChosen Feb 19, 2008

    Same problem...after selecting a game it searches (on and on) for match
    quality and such. Some times it's a few minutes, sometimes never...ugh


  • Anonymous Mar 02, 2008

    I can't seem to get into the match. It always makes me the host and now that it's been patched not enough people are joining my game. Do you know what the issue might be?

  • r8ers81 Mar 02, 2008

    My son has been having the same problem. He can actually start a match and sometimes complete one. But the screen wiil freeze within 5 minutes. I have been on the phone 7 times regarding this problem. They are aware that other people are having this problem. They have no clue why it is happening. They have tried evrything. Nothing seems to work. How many of you that are having this problem have a refurbished unit? I don't have this problem with any of our other games GRAW 2. Rinbow six Vegas etc..We all need to call XBOX and bitch like crazy. Their number is on my speed dial it is 1800 4 myxbox. If we keep complaining maybe they wiil do something. I told them if they don't fix it I would buy a PS3.

  • pissedatms Mar 30, 2009

    When I select 'Find Match' and then select any kind of match; ie Free for all, Team Deathmatch etc.  it searches for games, matches game quality and then sits forever on 'Waiting for 3 more players'.  I let it sit for about 2 hours today and nothing happened.  I have tried logging in and out numerous times in a row and nothing.  Anyone have a reason for this...my connection is good, no NAT problems.

Xbox live is down they are working on the issue but atm you cant get into games very easily you have to wait a really long time and most of the time you get booted out. They are having issues with everything. This has been going on for about 6 days now since friday last week. If you want to check the status of xbox go to www.xboxlive.com and search for status then click on support the status of xboxlive will be on the right hand side in the corner or the screen.

Xbox says that they are up and running! Ha RIGHT! I am still finding it difficult to get into a COD4 game. I'm getting connection problems (which is bull), I'm getting kick out of games and lobbys, match making is impossible! Is there anyone else having the same problems and what is being done to fix it because Xbox live is lying or oblivious to the problem. grrrrr

You need to check and see if our current modem is fast enough for these online games, i had a friend who had the same problem and when he had his internet provider come out he gave him a new modem and the problem was gone.

I don't know if you are still having this problem, but xbox live was having BIG problems around the time that you posted this problem. I am not sure if you have contacted MS or not, but word round the camp fire was that they were giving out free one month subscription cards to compensate for this problem. As far as I know the network should be operating fine now.

Posted on Jan 28, 2008

I get unable to connect to host error also. It seems like to happens with certain game types, I can't join Team Deathmatch games that are already in progress I always have to start in a new empty room.
I thought it might be my router so I bought a new one, and have the same problem. I have wireless internet through a directed dish. I think the problem is related to my inability to start voice chats with most of the people on my friends list.

Gamer411 - I've been having the same problems (in Boston) for a week now myself.... I can get it every now and then, but they (MS) are definitely having issues.

Posted on Jan 09, 2008

Definately having the same problem. Its reallllly annoying and its been going on for a couple weeks now, just now its worse than ever and you can hardly ever even set up a match, let alone get into one and complete one. Hopefully MS will smarten up and fix it soon.

i had the same problem with my xbox 360, but with call of duty world at war.
i had to exchange my xbox 360, for a new one.
and it now works fine, so you should probably stop trying to use the game, or exchange your 360.

Good evening!
Unfortunately you cannot reset your rankings for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare on the xbox 360. Your Xbox LIVE gamertag is set to Infinity Wards (COD4 developer) servers.

When this happens, you need to go to your dashboard because you arent even connected to xbox live. Then, log out and check your xbox live connection. One of the tests will fail and this will be your problem.
