Re: host connection errors

Some games on the ps3 requires a 1mbps of upload most of the games are at 512 mbps wich most internet services are locked at 512 its a problem out there for ps3 users the internet providers wont go over 512 due the their bandwith allocation! wich means if they double everybodys upload then they will run out of stream for uploads and downlads!

espacially when you play games with over 14 multiplayers the 1mbps becomes crucial!

so i suggest talking with the internet service and check online the game you refer for upload requirement donload shoulbefine!

My ps3 wont connect to my friends

The problem is your internet is not good enough to host or join their game. There is probably some type of connection problem or their game is full. Hope this helps.

I cant join an online game on call of duty 4. when i click find game or try joining friends, it says downloading game...... i know it's not my internet conection because im fine with other games online.

It may sound crazy but alot of people may not be playing when you are or they are playing something else so the the computer(connection) is searching for some players for you.

Call of duty 4, xbox live "connection interrupted"

try putting your xbox on the dmz in your routers settings. find your xbox's ip address and insert it into the dmz which leaves ALL security open but since no one can hack a 360 you don't have any worries, it worked for me! good luck

Unable to join game session

after endless hours of trying to play online we finally found out what the problem was -

check your discs you should have a serial on there if one ends in uk & the other ends in uk then you should be able to play together

if one ends i unk & the other ends in us then this is why you cnanot join or you cannot connect to host
This is the FIX
create another user then create another playstaion account now you both need to creathe this in unites states with another mail account - fill out the address in florida californail post code 90210 - once this is done youshould then be able to join up in the call of duty lobby but unfortunatley your stats are afresh
