I can't connect to the mp servers. Am I banned?

TheConkle
As of now, I know no reason why I should of been banned. I have thoroughly read the policy
and have not broke or misused any of the rules or regulations that have been posted there. How
do I find out how to fix this, or what is really going on?

    Look at your other post. You probably aren't banned, you're just having trouble connecting to the servers. Unless you hacked or cheated (on any game, not just Black Ops) then they wouldn't have banned you. Cutpurse has said many, many times that the ONLY way you get perma banned is if they find hacked software on your system or use of a lag switch

    What does it say exactly when you try and get online? Can you sign in on the XMB and then just not connect to the Black Ops servers? Whats your PSN?

    If you're banned you would get a pop message telling you so. If you haven't had that then it's just connection issues.

    I would recommend setting up port forwarding between your Playstation 3 and your router.
    You must set a static IP address on your console.
    http://foggaming.com/modules.php?name=PS3&file=ps3_ip
    This game uses the following ports:
    TCP: 80, 81,443, 3074, 5223 
    UDP: 81, 3074, 3075, 3478

    Steps to do so can be found at:
    www.portforward.com
    Select Router/Select Skip Advertisement/Select Game and Console

    It does that from time to time on my system, I shut it down for a bit (20 min.) then it works fine.
  • Re: Banned.

    I have had my system off for hours, and still go back to it, and its still doing it.

    The important thing is you are not banned, and it will start working again soon.

    *BUMP*

    Any other help? This is still not working been over a week now.
  • Re: Banned.
    Has it worked at all since you port forwarded? perhaps you did it wrong, theres always a risk when you mess around with router settings

    There are many router configurations you can do, but what i first suggest is turning everything off.

    You will need to unplug every ethernet cable coming into the modem, router, and game system. Make sure all those are powered off and unplugged. Wait for about 5-10 minutes, and plug in all the ethernet cables, then power each one up leading to your game system.

    If you still have an issue, try on the back of your router looking for a small reset button, and hold it in for 5 secs, and release. This usually does the trick for me.

    So I went out and got a ethernet for a wired connection, and I am still have the same problemmm.

    Okay dude this has happened to me before i thought i got banned for some reason too.
    This is going to sound really retarded but it actually works!

    okay so go into system settings and change the system language to italian. now go onto black ops multiplayer you should be able to get in!!!

    OK NOW DONT PLAY A GAME! now quit game and change language back to english and go back to the game! now itshould work!
  • Re: Banned.
    TheConkle
    I have done all of that and it is still not working.

    I even took my console to my friends house and it is still not working his works fine there, but mine does not.

    I would think if I got banned I would of got some type of message or email saying anything

    And I have thoroughly gone through the security enforcement policy, and I do not go under any of those.

    Any more help possibly?
  • Re: Banned.
    You are not banned. Are you by any chance on old PS3 firmware?
    I recommend you contact customer support and see if they can resolve this for you.
