Like my topic says I can't accept an invite and get into a game in BO2.

Last night me and a friend kept trying to start a privite match but we kept getting errors. We were never able to get in the same game.

I noticed my NAT was set to strict and I know my friends was as well...would this be our problem?

Anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks for any help. :)

The strict NAT will indeed be your problem. Often you set the NAT to open by (for wireless connections) resetting it through the PS3 / 360 and re-inputting your wifi details. Works for me everytime.

Well I did and watched videos on youtube....no luck. I thnk I'll end up having to go into my modem settings. What a massive pain in the butt though.

My NAT is set to open and I can't join any games in BO2, It's a Treyarch game so not surprised it has issues.

Well I got this fixed by going to my internet provider and telling them that I needed something more friendly with a PS3. They gave me a modem/router combo and it opened up my network....

Works like a champ now. :)

Thanks for the replies.
