    can't invite friends to party online

  • Anonymous Apr 11, 2009

    I have the same problem. The only way I have been able to invite friends on COD 4 and COD 5 is to enter an online game and then invite my friends when a space becomes available. Playstation network needs to correct this problem. It's very frustrating when you have 4 or 5 friends online and you can't get everyone into the same game. The lobby just doesn't work.

    im on the same boat, go to network setting, make new connection as a custom one, the upnp must be enabled, but it wont let you, sets itself to type 2, which means your router does not support ip fragments, which disables some communication features to others, hense the problems, only way round it is use ethernet not wireless or get a new router.

Can't set up private game online How do i set up a private game with 2 players online I go to game and other party does also and we can not hook up together

If you are playing the same game as a friend, you can press the ps button and bring up their name in your friends list, press triangle and select either join game, or invite friend. But first you have to be inside a pregame lobby in order to invite someone. If however you are connecting via LAN which is linking two PS3's together then you have to use the LAN setting instead of online play.

My ps3 wont connect to my friends

The problem is your internet is not good enough to host or join their game. There is probably some type of connection problem or their game is full. Hope this helps.

Multiple (3) ps3 and call of duty 4 in 1 house

On the Ps3 that isn't working, go into the settings and see if there is something under it that is prevent invitations or friend requests. It will probably be under parental controls or network settings. If someone else hosts the game can that Ps3 join. Also try and get the messed up one connected by ethernet cable and not wireless, it may be cutting out as there are 3 ps3's and probably multiple computers hogging the signal.
