Cannot play Halo with one person

I am really hoping someone can provide an answer to this problem which has been driving me nuts for a few weeks.

Ok  - I am on x box live, as is my nephew. We both live in Ireland. We would like to play Halo(3) against each other. However, we cannot join each others games in x box Live. So if I  invite him to a game or party, he gets a message saying he cannot join and verse versa - if he creates a game and invites me....I get the 'cannot join' message.

However the frustrating thing is, that we are both able to play against others. So he can create a Halo game and invite any other friends he has, and likewise I can  play Halo games against any other people without a problem.....but the maddening thing is, we cannot seem to join a game with each other!  

I have read up on NATS, and my nats settings are open, as are his.  We have tried everything to get to play against each other, but nothing works. I am really hoping someone can suggest a solution or advise what is causing this connection problem between just him and me and why we cannot join each others halo games.

all advise appreciated . thanks!
