Cannot Connect to Halo 3 or Reach servers in Matchmaking...

Hi there

after months of deliberation i finally got xbox gold so i could play Halo 3 on Xbox Live and found that every time i entered matchmaking i get a message saying 'cannot connect to halo 3 server'. I also tried Halo Reach and i get the same message but Reach just replaces the word halo 3.

Now i have researched everything i can, ive port forwarded, ive checked my nat bla bla bla ive tried it but still nothing. Its been close to a month since signing up now and i havent been able to play one game. I just cant find any recent recent info suggesting anyone else is having this problem atm. 

Is it me? Is it New Zealand? Is it Halo 3? Is it Slingshot?

I just wanna play if anyone has any suggestions id love to hear them, thanks :)

Hey Waylor1NZ, i had this problem a while back and for some strange reason found out it was due to my firewall settings. have you got a firewall active? if so deactivate it to see if this is the cause and if so, some minor tweaks may be needed there. also try resetting your console and checking your internet connectivity.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
