Call Of Duty Multiplayer (Firewall Info Inside)

Why is it everytime that I try to join a game online it takes Forever to try and connect and just never happens? I have broadband so i mean that should easily get on. whats going on? Then while its trying to connect it says waiting for cd key authorization. Is there any way that I can instantly connect without waiting very long and failing at it during the process? I want to play online so bad...........

Do you use your original cds and exe, or do you use a crack?
Which crack do you use?

Most of the time, cracks don't work for online-gaming!

u dont need a crack for the MP aspect of CoD

for not connecting to the server - u sure its not your firewall(if u're running one) - thats what it sounds like to me!!

I may as well see if I can help with this problem as well, seeing as Im answering your Doom3 questions in the other thread!
Do you only use the Windows Firewall!? If so not a good idea!

Well you already said you went and checked it in the Network properties and it was off! Thats gotten rid of it for now, but you should really have another firewall installed! The windows one is crap!

Ok lets double check to see if your windows firewall is turned off.
go Start/Settings/Network Connections, then Right Click your internet connection and choose properties, Then 'Advanced' Tab, then 'Settings' button

Once you get to the settings tab you should be able to see if its off. I should have asked this first but what version of windows are you using and what update? SP1 or SP2 (SP = Service Pack)

Before we go any further with this, Have you tried starting the game with the original Disc? Or are you trying to do it with a copy?
