I found this on another help site for getting the same thing. I tried this tonight when I was stuck in the Dowloading Settings and it worked for me. Not sure if it was coincidental that it went online after I finished this or not...but it got me online after 2 days. Here is what to do...
"another solution is.. go to barracks, leaderboards, kills and hit change filter so the worldwide kills screen is up turn ur controller upside down and let it scroll up for about a 15 mins - 30 mins . then hit O 3 times to get back to the original menu and do fins game.. this worked for me on 1 account but not on another.. if u have nothin else to do try it.. cuz this stupid error was annoying the bleep outta me."

If you are stuck on the Downloading game settings screen after clicking Find Game, this may be the fix for you. I did this on my PS3 and it worked.
1) Go into network settings and then make sure everything is custom, no automatic.
2) Find the IP address for the PS3. This is the problem!
3) Set the IP address to 192.168.1.100. If COD4 does not work, change the 100 in the IP to a higher number (101,102,103 etc.) (The closer to 100, the better.) Then try again.
This simple thing worked for me, and should work for you. Reason: Most online games use the IP address from the PS3, but COD4 doesn't. The designers of the game made it so that COD4 scans for its own IP address. It scans from 192.168.1.100 up and that's why if you CAN get COD4 to work with the Downloading Game Settings box, it takes an hour. By changing it to ....100 you are forcing COD4 to choose that IP address which is the fastest one.
just wait for Modern Warfare 2. I play COD4 all the time and the problems are getting worse for everyone, not just you. Mine sometimes takes forever to get there, sometimes it doesn't and I have to restart, or the Playstation Network kicks me off a million times a night. 11-10-09 and COD MW2 will be out and then we can deal with all those problems :)
1-turn off game console..............2-disconnect router for 20 seconds then reconnect............3-turn on game console..............4-go to setting click on network setting.................5-go to internet connection and press X and disable the connection wait 10 seconds and renable the connection and cod4 should work fine on line.............................
my sign name on playstation is red4n2ec0kreaper look me up if you need more help
it worked for me and should work for you
same problem for me, an update should be released soon to fix the problem. the game seems to randomly work at times however, so you can get lucky by keep trying. also there is a temporary fix. after going and getting stuck on the downloading game settings, unplug then replug your modem. after this the game should work for a few games, but you'll have to do this everytime you wanna play.
hopefully that helps, and hopefully a patch will be released
