After COD Black Ops Patch: PS3 Network, Router and Firewall Problems

By Daniel Chubb - Nov 18, 2010

It seems like weeks have passed since the release of Call of Duty Black Ops, which is certainly not the case, and in this time we have had a journey that included computer codes, cheats, glitches and a few problems. We touched on COD Black Ops connection problems on PS3 and Xbox 360 versions early today, which saw a patch go live for these systems shortly after.

Have you updated to the Black Ops v1.3 update? We have had a few emails in the last hour that report connection issues still, even after updating to the latest patch. We would like to point out that these problems seem to be related to people not being able to sign-in to PS3’s PSN network, and invite problems.

The invite problems that a few readers were having may be network related, which could be firewall or router problems. Do you feel your router or firewall is causing problems when connecting to friends and family?

This has been fixed in MW2 by opening up certain ports on your router’s firewall, but we cannot confirm if this is still needed in COD Black Ops. Let us know if you’ve updated to the latest Black Ops patch, and if you had problems with either connecting or your router / firewall. Feel free to leave firewall tips – related to Black Ops – for other readers.

It seems the connection issues in Call of Duty will continue for the time being.
