Hi there, Just bought mw3 it will not connect to online services: keeps coming up with error the call of duty modern warfare 3 server is not available at this time please try later... Our laptops are working fine and our son is connected to his x box and playing multiplayer on mw3 in other room. checked our network settings and everything working but it will NOT connect to server to play Multiplayer on mw3. Please can anyone help. driving me mad thankyou
Perhaps the MW3 server has gone down,it happens
- Check server status.
- Restart your console.
- Disable firewall/router security.
- Enable port forwarding.
(I'm a little surprised they don't offer any kind of warning when suggesting disabling all router security, but I guess if you're just testing it's ok)
If none of those work, there are console specific options and contact details in the link below.
thankyou for your reply been on the server and its saying its all working. can you tell me how to change the firewall on ps3 and also check change the port settings. new to all this thankyou for your help
Its your routers firewall m8 not the PS3,s it aint got one.
If you don't know how to access your router menu, take your Default Gateway (find it under "details" in windows network settings/type ipconfig into the command prompt on your PC and it'll list it) and put it into the URL bar in your browser.
Port forwarding differs on most routers, but the site below has guides for pretty much all of them - the ports you'll need to forward are listed on the link I posted previously and on the portforward site too.
thankyou just been in my settings and on outbound inbound firewall rules from router settings. my config says 192.168.01 so do i add this too the out and in bound and also it says on above boxes always allow always block thankyou for your help everyone from t
