Can''t join friend's co-op game. He can't join mine either!

I remember something like this happening in Mass Effect 3's multiplayer. Eventually it got fixed or something.

But now, goddamnit, I'm trying to join my friend when he invites me for a Co-Op game and it Fails, everytime. I try to host it and have him join but it also Fails.

Here's the strange thing though, on my first try at searching a co-op quick game, I joined a guy and was dropped in at the first Regenerator encounter. I played for a while until we reached the tram and said to myself: "Hey, I have no problems playing. Let's try again."

So I exited and we tried again. No progress. I googled and searched and saw something about forwarding connection ports, and even trying to play with the firewall deactivated.

Nope. It doesn't work. We can very easily join other people's games but we can't join each other's games.

Thanks to google I know it isn't happening just to us, but what the hell. The fixes don't work, how do you fix this anyway? >.<

I had the same issue playing with my dad. Found out it was his router (Belkin brand I believe) and when he directly connected to the modem (and later got a Linksys router) it worked fine. So since you had no issues connecting to someone else, see if you friend can connect his computer directly to the modem to see if that fixes the issue.

He actually could connect to someone else (a random from a Quick Match), just like me. The problem is when we invite/join each other's game. The game simply keeps failing.

I should mention I never have any connectivity issues in any online video game I play from my computer. From Team Fortress 2 to Mass Effect 3 multiplayer.

Why is this happening? D:

From when I had looked around, I couldn't find any concrete answers for this issue anywhere, and I had previously made a thread here about this issue before my dad and figured out that it was his router and no one responded to it. So yeah, I don't think anyone really knows.

It's probably a NAT issue and those are difficult to resolve.

o: Well this is a strange development. I recently made Origin friends with someone from here, and he invited me yesterday to play. I joined him and bam, no hitch, we started playing as if all of a sudden everything was perfect.

So um... I'm left thinking that I don't have the problem. It must be my friend's connection or router or something then?

This isn't the only thread, but it keeps getting frequently bumped by fellow users. Think EA might pay attention if enough support shows? I'm kinda fed up with contacting their Client Support derpbots. Maybe if enough user pressure happens they'll be inclined to resolve this annoying issue? :/

Any help or just clicking 'Me too' on that first post would be cool.
