Problem Joining Lobbies In Modern Warfare 2

Okay, so I've had Modern Warfare 2 for a while now, and only just recently it stopped finding games. I was able to find games before this, but now I can't.

I go to domination or team deathmatch or whatever; I've tried every game mode, and all that happens is that it searches for games repeatedly without success. This is really angering me because I cannot join any games. I've tried clearing my cache, and that did not work. I tried other games online like Halo and other Call of Duty games and I CAN find games on those, why can't I find them on MW2? I can join people's games in the recently played list for MW2, and I can also join my friends' games when they play MW2, but I can't find my own lobbies. I know for certain that nothing has been changed with my internet, and I even called my internet provider. 

Can anybody help?

Its possible your console has become a game critic and refuses to allow the game to run :P.

All joking aside have you checked your NAT settings just to be sure its not an issue there?. Might be worth a look.

Opening NAT to resolve MP issues.

Hazey, what happens when you run a LIVE connection test? What comes up on the screen? What's listed under 'more info?'

When I run a connection test, the Xbox 360 connects successfully with the network, the network with the internet, and the internet with LIVE. I don't see a more info button; are you referring to "Status"? If so ; This is what comes up

W: 0000 - 0021

X: 0000 - F001

Y: 20A8 - 4840

Z: 0000 - 0000

ID: FFFF - FFFF

Hey Red, I checked out those codes and nothing seems to be amiss there. Can you test a different game on LIVE, to see if you have similar issues joining or playing online matches?

Yep, I have tried Halo and other COD games such as WaW and Modern Warfare 1, and Left 4 Dead; others too. And I can find matches on those games. Modern Warfare 2 is the only game I cannot find matches on. And to rule out another possibility; I tried joining matches with a friend's MW2 disc in addition to my disc, and they were both unsuccessful so I know it is not a disc error.

I see. Unfortunately, as the issue does not appear to be with the Xbox LIVE service, you will need to contact Activision for further information regarding the state of Modern Warfare 2 matchmaking.
