Can't connect to a friend

 

  We both have open nat but can't seem to join a party.  We each get a "can't connect" message but we can connect to live and random games.  As a note, we both have the same service and live on island.

I'm having this issue too, with a few of my friends, we cant seem to ever get connected on xbox live.  We tried starting different parties, starting chat rooms, but nothing seems to work!!  Any advice?

Im having this exact issue... both open NAT. We can connect and play only when someone else hosts. Other than that we cannot do anything but send messages to each over xbox live. I know we don't have the same router BUT every other Call of Duty I used to play with him all the time. I'm extremely frustrated.

I'm having the same problem also. My neighbor and I can't play together in a party unless we have another friend host the party and invite us both. Doesn't matter what game we are playing. We can send messages. I have a wireless connection through Comcast and he has a connection through DirectTv. Both use different routers.

inapickle36, these forums work best when you create a new thread with a first post of your own, as the original poster's problem and solution, although similar, could be very different in detail. It's great that you're researching here, but the quickest path to a solution is your own new thread.

That being said, DirectTV uses a satellite service for connection, right? Then it will have awful latency and lag. Not much we can do about that.

 

Here's the info we will need for each of y'all to work on it when you come back to make oyur own new post.
