spanky1 posted... Eh, I'm pretty sure it's due to my ISP, not my router. Why? I used to have no router, and be connected directly from the PS3 to the modem, and it was still strict. Usually when I tell people this, their brains explode.
Unless you have some screwed up connections that your ISP installed for you, then it's your routers fault. And from what I've seen, any abnormal connections are usually strict.
My connection was until I took the firewall off of the LAN too.
Also, your NAT type goes hand-in-hand with whatever ports you have open.
Because it's strict, the game can't do certain things. In your case, you can't party up. I bet that you can't host games either and get booted off the PSN all the time too, don't you? That's what it was like for me before I sorted my connection out too.
And stop telling people things that make their brains explode, it's manslaughter. --- PSN - MAArc E.U. MGO - SCRO ~Official White Knight of the PS3 Modern Warfare 3 board~
MoP15 posted... Strict can and does happen because of ISP, I have Bell Cellular internet at some stupid price (80 bucks for 10 gb) because thats all I can have where I live, and strict is the only option available. To get a type 1 or 2 connection, you have to pay 10$ extra a month and have to find a customer representative that know what hes talking about. Most of them, you call and have no clue, so its pointless to try to get them to do it for you.
Sounds like a scam to me bro.
Did you know that when you send your computer in, for whatever reason, they usually just save everything on it and format it?
Fiddle around with the ports yourself I say.

Not sure you are talking to me, but when I was talking about getting a customer representative to do it, I didnt mean sending my PC in. I meant him knowing which paper form he needs to send me, so I can sign it etc so they can "release" my IP and make it public, thus giving me type 2 NAT.

I was using that as an example on how corrupt companies can be.
What they're doing to you is similar to how companies put DLC on disc's and then make you pay for it.
It's very unethical and you should have NAT type 2 as standard. --- PSN - MAArc E.U. MGO - SCRO ~Official White Knight of the PS3 Modern Warfare 3 board~
In Black Ops, which is basically the same damn game, me and my brother could join up in a party, in the same house, on the same modem, with two different PS3s. If we could do it there, why can't we do it here? I don't think it's a NAT type issue.
It doesn't say it can't connect, it doesn't time out, it doesn't do any of that. It simply says the other person's party is set to private. Methinks this has something to do with MW3, not stuff on my end. >:( --- Spanky http://farm1.static.flickr.com/138/377153264_fada9efcca_m.jpg
This is a perennial Modern Warfare problem, it's been that way with all the Modern Warfare games and it sucks because Black Ops worked fine with parties on the same router. I hate it so much --- PSN: aladiesman
