Sounds more like a NAT issue. You and your friend should test your connection and make sure you both have an Open NAT. If either of you has a Moderate or Strict NAT it will affect your ability to connect to other players.

 

Go to the Network Settings Tab on your console and run a connection test. If it is Open then you will not see a message when it is finished.

It only tells you about your NAT if it is either Moderate or Strict. If it is one of those a box will come up telling you that and telling you to check your router settings.If you saw no message after testing your connection then you have an Open NAT and have nothing to worry about. What about your friends NAT?

You could also go into mw2 or black ops. When you are sitting in an xbox live lobby (before you start a game) it will say something like "NAT Type: Open, moderate, or strict" You want it to say "Open"

Thats just another way to see if you have NAT issues. But it could very well be your friend
