I can't find Matches online on MW3

I cannot play any online matches on mw3. I tried every lobby and no matches found even after 250 mp and after it searches all the mp it tells me no match can be found. i was thinking it is because of where i live or the internet service i have,but i get to play games like UFC,Guitar Hero,and Saints Row i don't see what's the problem if it works for those games.   I need Help.

to play online you must be a gold member to play on xbox live.if you are a gold member and have an active gold account,the problem maybe the servers were down on that day i would try again at a later time with MW3 if you can play online on ufc guitar hero and saints row.it would be that call of duity servers were down or overloaded.

Hey Ma5terWolfe1,

What does your NAT say when you load the game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3? I understand that this game has an in-game NAT detection that will tell you if it's Open, Moderate, or Strict.

Having a moderate/strict NAT will prevent you from finding games with others in some games.

Let us know :)

If your using a router please try to directly connect your XBOX 360 via Ethernet Cable to the back of your cable/dsl modem. Then try to do another search for games.

You can try to reset all your network connections and even rebooting both modem and wireless router. Given your Xbox and fresh network connection might be the key you need to find matches online. Also, you can try to see other lobby-type games such as Halo, Black-Ops, etc. to see if you get the same results.

Let me know!

Hi there Ma5terWolfe1, can you please tell me whether you have recently downloaded the new free-map "Terminal"? If so, did the problems occur after this? Is there any sort of error message that appears when you try to play online?

Personally I would follow R327's advice, on trying to see if other online games allow you to join similar styled 'pre-game lobbies'. Then report back to this thread so you can be further helped.

However, if other online (lobby-like) games work then it might be worth going to MW3 support chat and asking them if there are any problems on their end. (http://support.activision.com)

Also, for future reference, here is the link to the MW3 servers status.  www.callofduty.com/.../status

Hi there Ma5terWolfe1.

After having you follow all of the above advice,. Considering your Nat type is "Open", and all of the other games have the equivalent problems to Modern Warfare 3, not being able to find a game, I suggest calling your internet provider, to send a new router. After you have described the problems you are facing, they should then send you a new router, for free (depending on who your internet provider is).
