II have 3 xboxes and when it comes to playing MW2--1 xbox will connect sometimes with a NAT type of Open and another with a NAT type of Moderate.  The Open NAT type will allow for maybe 2-3 games (30 mins total play).  I followed all of the troubleshooting steps--enabled the UPnP, forwarded ports, etc & still am encountering this problem!! The other xbox's can play online but when it comes to putting in the MW2 disc & playing the game I might as well give up!!  I'm having to listen to more than 1 person sit & cuss out the internet, the xbox & me cuz it WON'T let them play!! Can someone please help!?!?

Please see this link about "How To: Open NAT to resolve Party and Multiplayer problems." found here in this forum:


There is a section of that document about "Two or more Xbox consoles for multiplayer at the same time," that will more than likely explain the problem you're encountering.

It also contains a "Xbox LIVE compatible hardware list " that may solve your issue.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
