Re: Problems connecting to servers battlefield 3 xbox 360 please help!

One other thought I had, if you use any P2P software like BitTorrent then turn this off, restart (turn off and on) the router, and then try playing the game.
Let me know if this helps.

Re: Problems connecting to servers battlefield 3 xbox 360 please help!

This is very odd, I've got the game on both PC and XBOX (yes I know, overkill!) and have played it on both platforms. I'm on Plusnet Fibre and have used both the Netgear router we supply and a different Netgear router, both of which were standard set up out of the box and had no port forwarding rules set up.
A few questions:
- Have you added any port forwarding rules to the router?
- Are you playing on XBOX or PC?
- If XBOX, is your XBOX Live account still active and not closed/expired for any reason?
- If XBOX can you play any other games online through XBOX live?
- If PC have you got the latest battlelog browser plugin?
- If PC can you access the server browser?

Re: Problems connecting to servers battlefield 3 xbox 360 please help!

So it's after installing the patch that you are having problems connecting? Are you making sure that you have the Back 2 Karkand add-on and if you don't then make sure you aren't trying to play on one of those maps.
