There are a few reasons that this is happening. I play Black Ops almost daily and have encountered this endless times.
1. On the multiplayer menu right before you search for a match, look at the bottom right of the screen. It says something about a "NAT". If your NAT is CLOSED or MODERATE than this maybe the issue. You can open the NAT depending on your internet service provider:
That video may help (its the one I used) if you have Verizon, but if not, you can always search for your specific internet provider.
2. If you are using Xbox Live with a ethernet cable you should have a relatively better connection that if you are using WiFi to connect. If possible, try switching to ethernet.
3. When searching for games (on the same menu as above) hit the "back" or "select" button on your controller (the one on the left of the big circle xbox guide button) and set your search settings to "Locale" or "Locale Only". What this does is only search for connections near you which allows you to have better connections to the game.
4. Your internet itself might not be that fast. If this is the case, theres not much you can do besides pay for faster internet. This isn't always an option so I suggest avoiding it. You can however test your internet speed at:
This allows you to actually see how fast the internet you're using is.
5. Switch back to an older Call of Duty. I'm a big fan of Black Ops but no matter what you do to fix your connections, this game is highly connection based. If you are having THAT much of a problem with it and tried everything, you might as well save yourself the rage and trouble and play a game that works.
Hope this helped ! See you on Xbox live, hopefully ;)
How are you connecting Your Xbox console upto your Internet ? if your Connecting Via WiFi, Make sure you have the Xbox compatible WiFi adaptor, if you are connecting Via a Local Area network, Ensure that your Console is hooked up Directly to Your Router, and if your connecting Via a Shared internet connection thru a PC, Ensure it is Hooked up correctly and also that your computer is set up to allow sharing the internet connection, That sometimes makes Xbox live faulty.
Also another problem for IP addresses not working is Due to your Internet service provider, Some broadband companies constantly renew IP addresses changing them every so often which the Xbox doesnt like. I would suggest contacting your Service provider and seeing if they have any Technical Support !
it a problem with your internet provider i had the same prolem all i did was call them and tell them your being disconnected and the hsould be able to start you up again also tell them if you have a rrouter connnected as well
I would suggest that if you are xbox live unless you have fast internet dont use the internet for other things like your computer. Its most likely that there is not enough bandwidth for everything. If that doesnt work call you internet service provider and explain the problem to them and if they are a legitamate company they will help you out.
The xbox live board is down,so if you pass all tests except the xbox live one,this is the problem.I rang them and they said over 50% of users are having this problem.Its because so many people went on it over Christmas and the system got overloaded.They said they're working on it and it should be up and running in a week or two. ~~PS~~ I rang on the 12-1-08 so it should be up by the 20th,its not your fault,the servers down.
