Problems with online play on Call of Duty 4 for XBOX 360

80 percent of the time when i go to find a match on online it says it can't find the server or you need to have a network service active. Also, when i want to play with one of my friends, it says unable to connect to host. I've played online before, so I know it's not a problem with the connection, and it works fine for Halo 3. What's the problem?

Re: Problems with online play on Call of Duty 4 for XBOX...

There have been xbox live problems running rampant throught these past few weeks, so that most likely is the problem. hopefully that will get fixed in a few days by microsoft. another possible reason is that cod4 servers are generally unstable, especially on the ps3. IW has had problems for quite a while. I've heard that logging out then in for XBL solves the problem for the 360, but this is just a maybe. eventually (hopefully soon) IW will release a patch to combat these issues.

Call of duty 4 connection

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.
