Problem connecting to Black Ops with BT Home Hub 3

Hi

Since switching my ISP to BT (big mistake) I've had a lot of problems whilst playing online (COD Black Ops) My connection would often drop halfway through a game, or I when I tried to go online I would get the message: the black ops server is not available at this time I tried resetting my router (Home Hub 3) and sometimes that would work and I'd be able to get back online.

But in the last few days all I get is the black ops server is not available at this time message and nothing I do (restart router, factory reset router, restart xbox, assign static IP, Assign manual DNS servers, sign in with different account) seems to work. The odd thing is that I still have a good connection to Xbox Live with an open NAT so it seems to be a problem specific to Black Ops.

I've looked through various forums and have tried setting up port forwarding for Black Ops from the guide on www.portforward.com, but when I do the Home Hub gives me the message:

Conflict

The game or application you’ve selected conflicts with an application () you’ve already assigned to another device.

Please remove the other application or select the same device.

I haven't assigned another application to the Xbox 360, or any other device so this makes no sense. I googled the error message and no one seems to have any solution for this problem...

If anyone has any idea on how I can fix this problem and get Black Ops back online it would be much appreciated.

My details are below:

Based in UK

Router is the BT Home Hub 3

Network is Wireless (Although I've tried it wired and have the same problems)

UPnP is on

NAT type is open

Hi! It seems like you've done a lot of troubleshooting already. :) Does your router allow you to place devices in a DMZ? If so, could you try placing your Xbox 360 there?

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

I tried the DMZ - didn't work. Then after two days not working, when I'd just about given up hope I tried it again and it worked! Not sure how long it'll last though.
