Cannot Connect to Halo 3 Servers (Cannot connect to Halo Reach Servers aswell)

Hi there

after months of deliberation i finally got xbox gold so i could play Halo 3 on Xbox Live and found that every time i entered matchmaking i get a message saying 'cannot connect to halo 3 server'. I also tried Halo Reach and i get the same message but Reach just replaces the word halo 3.

Now i have researched everything i can, ive port forwarded, ive checked my nat bla bla bla ive tried it but still nothing. Its been close to a month since signing up now and i havent been able to play one game. I just cant find any recent recent info suggesting anyone else is having this problem atm. 

Is it me? Is it New Zealand? Is it Halo 3? Is it Slingshot?

I just wanna play if anyone has any suggestions id love to hear them, thanks :)

Try adding forwarding the ports for xboxlive in your router, and ensure UPnP is ticked.

Have a look at this video off youtube for help in configuring the router.
