I am unable to host or join multiplayer games. I can only join public games if on "any" for search preference. Don't have that option on ghost. I have the same problem with ghost. I have tried everything here and a few other suggestions on various blogs. Things tried including, static IP, port forwarding, even DMZ. Some will make some features ok but not others, I have been running Black ops 2 for a long time and ghost since it came out. Started a month or so ago. I am at a lost as to what started this problem, ISP changes, I'm running a lynksys 6900 or new modem with router. Help Help help I've tried everything and have now run out of options.
The system chooses the players in the lobby to be the host of the match. If you have a better connection than the other players, it's more likely that you will be selected as the host of the match. Try Power Cycling before playing the game. You may also want to have the connection checked with your ISP.
