Every time i try and connect in multi player and spec. ops it just sits there at connecting to iwnet... I have forwarded all the needed ports and I checked to see if they were open through a program. Any ideas on why I can't connect?

Try to check with your ISP to see if they blocked those ports.

i've been getting the same thing all weekend.. here's my deal (copied from another forum)

Here's my system:

Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit
Intel D820 on a D965RY w/ 3gb RAM and lots of drive space
BFG GTX275OC w/ latest Nvidea drivers (not beta)

Connected w/ a static IP to a Linksys WRT54G that is connect (w/ static IP) to the ISP's dsl modem.

Here's what i've done so far to try to resolve this:

- Uninstalled/reinstalled Steam & MW2

- Connected my PC directly to the internet

- Verified (with PFPortChecker) that I have ports 1500, 3005, 3101, 28960 & 27000-27050 open for Steam and MW2.

- I've tried with the windows firewall disabled/enabled & uninstalled my AV software

- Tried creating port rules 2 ways; 1 in the main windows firewall (Allow program or port) & 2 in the Administrative Tools>Firewall with Advanced Settings (created incoming and outgoing rules)

- Rebooted/Reset PC, Router, Modem, etc... countless times at this point.

- Tried "Run As" Administrator command opening Steam and MW2.

**** edit *****
- Tried installing on laptop (XP Pro, faster specs than desktop except graphics is 9800mGT)

same result - hangs at "Please wait - Connecting to IWNet..."

****edit****
Back on desktop PC - checked router logs while trying to connect.

Verified it is attempting to contact 72.165.61.187 which looks like it works.

Also trying to hit 63.241.188.230 which I can't ping and tracert dies enroute.

...Boy, I sure wish there were dedicated servers.
