Hello,

you should check your net connection and open all ports in order to facilitate matchmaking in multiplayer mode. Matchmaking is equally as important to the connection quality of your game as home networking and is impacted by all of the following:

Region – If you live in a remote region, it will be more difficult to find hosted games that match your profile. The best option for those in extremely remote regions is to play during local peak hours in playlists with high player counts.

   Time of day – Since matchmaking works to find the game with the best connection quality, it will have a much easier time finding high quality connections when there are more players online in your area. As a general rule, peak usage occurs during the late afternoon and evening hours in each time zone.

   DLC ownership – DLC map packs divide matchmaking pools into groups of players who have DLC and players who don’t have DLC. The more map packs that are released, the more matchmaking pools there are.

For further information you should check Activision forums and this Xbox live support link:

Actually yes. Playing a game using a wireless connection is the primary cause of lag and connectivity issues. A wired connection will maintain the bandwidth connection that is required for online gaming. Because the console comes with integrated Wi-Fi, it is easy for users to use that connection to play games. Make sure that you configure your console’s settings to use the wired Ethernet network instead of the integrated Wi-Fi network.

Ya its set up with the ethernet setting.  I went and bought an ethernet cable and hooked my 360 up to that and connected to a wired network.  Connects to xbox live great but still says 50 potential games found....testing matches...and gets up to 24 good games found but still says "we need to find 7 more players." Sorry to keep bothering you with it but dont understand why it wont work.

When it is showing "Waiting for more players", that means you are connected to get game, and you're the host of the lobby at that point in time until it finds other players to connect with you. Last time I was on Ghosts there was only 100,000 people playing so finding a game in any game mode if going to take a little while. So be patient, and the games will come as it looks like the connection issue is resolved. You're now facing the matchmaking doom, meaning with so few players playing, it'll take longer to find a game.
