I have been having a ton of trouble with dropped connections in xbox live. I will be playing private co-op missions and my friend always gets booted before we can even finish the mission. I also seem to drop out of most of the quick matches that I play too.

So I am interested to hear if anyone else had them as frequently or if it is just me. I also received the reconnecting screen a lot in halo 2 so I am wondering if it is my router. Maybe i'll head out to circuit city and give one a try.

Playing the same as you last night and got booted 3 times in 40 mins i'm in NZ playing mates in UK.

Using a D-link wireless ADSL router, never had problems before with any other game

Im having trouble too. Bought the game today, and so far, 2/2 games on live for me have dropped out within 20 seconds. Just says the game was closed, when it wasn't...

Two things on this.

(1) check your xbox live settings to make your "NAT" is set to OPEN.

(2) When you start a game tell everyone in the lobby to hold off on picking their gun until the game begins counter is less than 5 seconds. Picking your gun before everyone is in the game causes drops.

Is XBox Live not functioning on GRAW yet? (As in open-games, not private), because I was searching for games to play today and I didn't find one public match.

This has happened to me about 5 times today. I was first, had the most kills and the game just drops. It is really starting to piss me off hopefully they can fix this problem.

i get dropped a bunch but never during the game

i sure hope they patch, but the funny thing is that the first ghost recon, not sure on the second, had similar live quarks where you would have to ready up mute your mic, wait 10-15 seconds then start to minimize lag and being dropped. Odd that that would carry over

Well I got a new router and that helped alot. However, I do still get booted accasionaly. The most frustrating thing is when you try to connect to a server and it fails or you jump into a server that you don't like, you have to search all over again. And we all know that that takes FOREVER! I hope they release a patch soon.

Here are two things to do to avoid dropping. I host servers on a regular basis and find that these steps will avoid dropping players. Make sure everyones microphone is muted before you start the game, once the game has started they can unmute their microphones. If a new player joins you must wait 20 seconds before you start the game or they will be dropped.

yea i had same prob long time ago but now evrything is fine you have to change your N.A.T settings to OPEN not STRICT which is prob wot uv got it on just test your xbox live settings on the dashbord -go network settings -test connection n see what it ses if ses STRICT big prob this will restrict your gaming ability (your probs) ...... all you have to do is go on your routers web site and create a D.M.Z code for your IP address to follow ....(if i remember correctly) yea it is kinda comple (hard) but if you search around forums like these youll soon find out how to fix....if u need more info or if that helped you in ne way PLZ AD MY GMRTG SniperElite25 as id like to see how it went
