Can't connect to EA servers

★★★ Newbie

When I insert the battlefield 3 multi-player disc, and I choose the multi-player option, it says I lost connection to the EA servers. I play on  

Xbox 360 and my NAT type is open. I have opened UPnP and I have a wired connection. How can I solve this problem?

Might be a DNS problem. Are you sure that your ISP's DNS is working properly? You can always change it to another dns .

 

Step 1 - download the program:  http://code.google.com/p/namebench/ 
Step 2 - tutorial for namebench:  http://code.google.com/p/namebench/wiki/UsingNameBench 
Step 3 - google a DNS tutorial: "manually setting DNS for _______" (xbox 360, windows 7, ps3, etc)
Step 4 - use your DNS tutorial to manually enter the top two results from google namebench into your ME3 gaming system's network settings

It Is not my DNS. My brother is on the same internet, and can play multiplayer with no problems.

Well thats kinda harsh don't you think? I tried my best to help you, told you i couldn't help you...You could just wait until someone else tries to help you but you decide to act like this? I'm only a gamer, trying to help other gamers unpaid...The least you could say is thank you for trying, instead of this....

I wasn't talking about you, i was talking about my game, because i payed $45 and now i cant play anything? I do thank you for trying to help, but it doesn't seem like there is a solution to this, or at least nobody else has had this problem.

Have you checked this guide?

It could very well be a problem with your router. Is your brother also playing BF3 multiplayer on Xbox ?
