how is the network set up? are the firewalls and router (if any) set up properly?

Yup, i think the router is set up properly. I've never had problems before... when we set up a LAN game it's fine. Last night while he was at home and i was at home we set up a graw2 server and that worked fine. As far as firewalls are concerned i have them all set up correctly... i think.... my theory is that if GRAW and GRAW2, FEAR etc works fine then COD 4 shouldn't have a problem. I can connect to online games etc. but when i set up a server he just can't see the server.... thanks for the res[ponses...

lan and inernet games are different for a reason. at least open the port 2960 both udp and tcp on the router's firewall. see PortForward.com - Free Help Setting up Your Router or Firewall for help setting up the network properly
