It looks like I came to the right place.

I'm in no way a computer guy but I can stubble my way through most of my computer issues. I'm trying to help my friend's son get COD2 up and running on his system. I don't know much about the system except that it is a low end Dell with Window XP, Norton Firewall and 512RAM, that we had to upgrade the video card on to solve an aplha blending error. COD2 now loads but when he tries to join a game, no servers names appear and when he refreshes the list COD2 just blicks "Waiting for Response from Master Server". It appears to me that COD2 can't connect to the internet but all the setting that I can find in both Windows and Norton seem to allow COD2 access. Can anyone help me out?

Thanks
Ken

make sure you have installed the 1.01patch, the 1.02 patch, and the 1.3 patch in that order.

downloads needs to be turned on, and punkbuster needs to be set to enabled.

in the master browser server make sure the it is set to look at the internet for games and not lan.

first time you join a server it may take up to a full min for you to connect (you will see a timer running). this is normal.

:) I know exactly what it is. I installed a few firewalls lately after I had a bad virus and then it wouldn't let me play cod2! it came up with the same message as you did. I turned off all my firewalls and it worked! :)
