Losing connection on Call of Duty 4 ALL THE TIME!!

Whilst playing on COD4, it keeps saying, "Error: Network Connection Lost" and I get kicked off the game. I sometimes get the "connection interrupted" message aswell even though i have a perfect signal. Every time I have to keep signing back in. I then lose any xp I'd gained in that match. Its weird cos it doesnt happen when im playing, for example, FIFA08. Why does it have to play up on the best game on xbox live? I understand many people are having to put up with this so why arn't they doing anything about it?

    Yes. I'm having exactly the same problems including lost XP. Microsoft suggest it's a problem at Activision. I've been playing since Christmas without any problems then I gave the game a rest for a while. I recently purchased the new map pack and started playing again and now I have the problems. I haven't made any configuration changes and I get no internet interuptions and it doesn't happen on any other online game. How many other people out there are having the same problem? It make the multiplayer game unuseable.

    I also have the same problem with my Xbox 360. I play on Call Of Duty 4 Live and sometimes with my mates - i earn loads of xp and get really high kill streaks and then for no GOOD reason it says connection interrupted. I think that this is a very serious problem and that Microsoft shouldn't be allowed to produce that kind of a rubbish connections however when I play Quantum Of Solace Live the connection interrupted never appears. Could it possibly be the CoD4 game rather than Microsoft's server connection?

    this happens to me as well and it sucks, i have the perfect signal, connection is in green at max and then for no apparent reason i get disconnected and cant join a game without lagging out.

    i have the same problem but only when i connect to xbox live after my brother does on his xbox, also there may be a problem because there are three laptops on the internet at once so that may be an issue.

There may be a firewall on your connection, if you play maybe try turning it off or allowing the connection. Ive had the problem before but it usually just goes away, oh almost forgot i had the problem whenever someone in my house used the internet on their laptop.

I have not been able to play MW3 on wii for months, and I'm about to throw the game out. I can play the Net flix and other games no problem. I even bought a new router and modem to fix the problem. I can get on the game but after 2 minutes every time, I get kicked. I have asked every one I know and nobody can give me the same answer and never the right one. I need help.

Try moving the xbox closer to the router (wireless) you shouldn't have problems if using ethernet. If problems persist you'll have to talk to someone in microsoft. it does this on PS3 cod aswell so it's not just microsoft

Cod4 'sometimes works online'

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 :)

Playstation 3 Connection issue. Playstation/Game/Connection ?

You might need to get another router. Your NAT might not be Open. Its probably Moderate. Which means most of the time you cannot connect to a game or host. Get my point? Well i got a new router and that fixed it :)

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

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 for xbox 360

i phoned microsoft about the problem, cuz i've been getting the same thing on other games too and at one point not even connecting on the dash, but when i test the connectivity everything is fine. the person who i spoke to at microsoft said "its a problem with x-box live, and they are working 24/7 to try to resolve this. it is a problem which started x-mas 07" looks like were all going to have to grin and bare it for a while because by the sounds of it they aint got a clue whats up with it.
