    Hi,
    When I try and join any games on cod 4 multiplayer, it comes up with message 'Awaiting key code athorization' then counts to ten and exit's. This has happened before but if I tried again I could always connect, now no matter how many times I try on any server it wont let me connect, please help.
    Also, I dont no if this is any way related but i can no longer connect to Steam or acces some websites I normaly go on.

    That message means punkbuster can't get a reply (Key Code) to say you're using an unmodifed game.

    I'd say the internet problems are related to this issue. Are you posting on the machine with the trouble?

    This is controlled by IW's servers. Once in a while they have issues. There is nothing you can do on your end.

    It looks as if I'm in the same boat too. CoD United Offensive and the Original CoD wont connect either.

    Interestingly Internet Explorer wont connect to callofduty.com or activision.com either.

    What the heck is going on?

    Cod 4 is now working fine for me now, it seems that its their problem not ours, so we just need to sit tight until they fix it.
