Disable your media servers from the settings. If that doesn't solve your connection problem, then there are only two possible causes left:
1) The Activision game server has trouble dealing with the increasing number of players. In this case, all you can do is send them an e-mail noticing them about this problem if the problem still exists after about one week of waiting.
2) The problem lies with your Internet Service Provider. In this case, change it or upgrade to a larger bandwidth.

First try this simply go to media server settings in your PS3 and disable the streaming media servers. If this not works then try this if on wire (ethernet) go to settings on ps3 go all the way down to network settings then press on network settings it'll tell you your going to be signed out of PSN press x then do wired connection and automatic to all don't use proxy don't set dchp host name and do all settings automatic reboot/restart whatever you call it

modem and ps3 try getting online to play your game

if on wireless do same settings as above but instead of selecting wired select wireless automatic all

if that doesn't work go into your router

d-link brand router 192.168.0.1

linksys brand router 192.168.1.1

belkin brand router 192.168.2.1

enter that ip in your webbrowser

then look for a setting that says DMZ

enter your last digit or digits of ip click on check box to enable and click apply

depends on which router your using if

d-link brand router 192.168.0.1 your ip should be between 2-100

linksys brand router 192.168.1.1

belkin brand router 192.168.2.1

To find out your ip go to settings on ps3 all the way down to network settigs and select network settings list and it will tell you your ip

if this is the step you need to make your ps3 work you will need to make your ip static

static means your ip never changes for as long as you have these settings on

to do this u'll need to go to network settings and select

either wire or wireless then custom

and follow on-screen instructions

for ip select manuel

only enter ip, primary dns, and router

rest like proxy, dhcp host name, select do not use and do not set for those 2

rest auto only ip dns amd router address needs changing and disable UPNP you don't need that if your going to use static DMZ ip address

ip will be 192.168.x = 0 or 1 or 2 depending on your router . xx = your custom DMZ last digits for example 12

so it would be 192.168.2.12 or 192.168.1.12 or 192.168.0.12

and even if this also does not work then try this
If u r using a router (no matter the brand), the problem probably has to do with the router. In order to find out, disconnect your PS from the router and plug it directly into you modem. If your modem is not near your playstation then move it close to the ps3. The modem plugs directly into your cable line so there is a good chance that the television you play your PS3 on has a cable connection. One you have connected your PS to your modem press the reset button on the modem. Turn your PS on and go directly to your network settings. Click on Internet Connection Test (do not bother trying to set up a connection manually, if you do this chances are you will mess something up). If you are getting a connection then you are ready to go. There is a good chance you may never get a connection interruption again. For the time being you will be able to enjoy playing call of duty like you once did. Now u might ask what am i supposed to do with my router? I need it for my laptop, xbox, etc? Just buy a new one. Chances are the one that you have is garbage. It might have worked great at once, but hey, these things happen. I suggest doing your research and find a router that works well with gaming. I hope this works. In summary, it is not your playstation or your internet service provider that is giving you problems... It is your router... connect your PS to your router to test this theory...

Hi! recently joined playstation network. completed sign in etc. can browse online too. but when i wish to play online it gets stuck 'connecting to matchmaking server' etc


Hi,

can you go to network settings in your ps3 then test internet connection. If it says UPNP unavailable then you need to enable it in your router or upgrade router firmware if router shows UPNP as enabled.

Thanks.

It could be your router or network settings for your internet. Do you use Port forwarding? The Playstation site tells you all the ports you need to use. Also try putting your playstation in a DMZ.

They are making updates to the servers.
Please be patient as they are trying to get the servers up and running.

And yes, some people can still connect to the servers while others can't. This is normal during updates. Just wait for about a week and this will go away. If there's still a problem, call Activision and tell them of the problem.
