From Activision's website:
If you are having a problem connecting to an online game check the following:
Make sure that you are playing in WiFi. This game will not work over 3G.
Disable any firewall or security features on your router
Set port forwarding on your router to the IP address of your iPhone/iPod Touch. This game uses ports 3074 and 3478 (UDP/TCP)
- Place your iPhone/iPod Touch into the DMZ of your router
- If your modem supports a wireless connection then try turning off the router and connect wirelessly directly to the modem. If it works regularly at this point something about your router may not be completely compatible with the specific needs of this game. Check with your router manufacturer for additional steps that may need to be done to resolve the issue you are having.
NOTE: If setting port forwarding or DMZ helps your connection issue, you may want to assign your iPhone/iPod Touch a static IP address within your home network. This can help to ensure that the configurations you made do not need to be done again.
NOTE: Many broadband internet modems are coming with routing capabilities built in. Please contact your internet service provider to determine if your internet modem has an integrated router. If it does, they should be able to assist you with the steps above for setting up your router.
The following steps will help you forward ports on the NETGEAR router for Play station network (PS2, PS3, PSP). At time you can not access or play online games through your PS and in such cases you need to make sure that you have the required ports forwarded on your router as mentioned below. The below steps are applicable for NETGEAR router model WGR614, WGT624, WPN824, WNR2000, WNDR3300, WNR854T, WNR834B etc
1. Open a browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari) on your computer connected to the router.
2. Access the router, usually by typing 'http://192.168.1.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.
3. Login to the router (Username = admin and Password = Password unless you have changed it).
4. Click on Port Forwarding under Advanced.
5. Click on 'Add Custom Service' button.
6. Specify any name for the service (PSN1). Select Service Type as TCP/UDP
7. Specify the Start and the End Port as 80.
8. In the server IP Address specify the ip address of the PS3.
9. Click on 'Add' button.
10. Follow the same steps to open the below ports
Start = 443 End = 443 use name as PSN2
Start = 5223 End = 5223 use name as PSN3
Start = 3478 End = 3479 use name as PSN4.
Start = 3658 End = 3658 use name as PSN5.
Start = 10070 End = 10080 use name as PSN6.
These steps would allow you to access online games on your PS connected through the NETGEAR router.
Most likely you are behind a Firewall / or preset Router Settings. If this is the PS3 version of the game, most likely its the router. Double check with the specs for Port forwarding online, and make sure the ports are open to allow you to play.
-GamePorts required open / Notes Call of Duty 3Source & Destination port 3074 allow outbound + inbound on UDP and TCP. -
CoD in most instances uses the same ports for all there games. This is the first thing I found after looking through Google search. Hope it helps.
Actually you don't need to forward ports when playing online games. The router should automatically locate the ports for the game because it has UPnP function. Here's what you can do. Disable the port forwarding and DMZ that you set on the router. Look for the UPnP function of the router and disable, Save it. Enable it again, then save. Now power cycle your router. If you have Static IP on the PS3 network settings, try to set it first to automatic IP and automatic DNS.
