Chat with Rockstar customer support agent

Right, when i bought the game the multiplayer was never working properly, most likely due to the servers being full for the first few weeks etc;

As many of you will have read this before, the message i recieved was

"Disconnected from game session, returning to single player"

Now after a while i was able to play without any problems for quite a few months up until a month or two back when the online suddenly stopped working and i got this message again.

Now i rang up Rockstar and the guy said i needed to open up a port, so i rang up BT and got them to open it up for me, although to my surprise the port was already open (hence being able to play before)

So why the sudden "not being able to play the game"?

Anyway i rang Rockstar back up and he said that i should get a new router as that could be the problem.... this is very frustrating for me as surely i dont need to buy a new router just to play a game. I also have this problem with Midnight Club LA although my other games work fine.

Im on Xbox 360 and i am using a Black BT Home Hub

So what do you think the problem is?

Funny that your problem only seems to exist for Rockstar games.
Must be something to do with their servers or something. As for a solution, if you want to exclude your router as the problem see if anyone has another router you can borrow to test out, that way you don't have to buy a new one.

It's weird that it did work and suddenly doesn't, but I do know that certain routers can make a difference. My cousin was completely unable to play Rock Band or GTA IV online, but other games worked just fine. That is, until he got a new router, and now everything works as it should. Routers can be bitches sometimes.

If you can borrow a router from someone to test, like lillb said, I think that would be the best option.

Are you able to test out online mode with the router disconnected? Like, just the modem with a cable to the 360? Or are you using wireless?

Despite the fact that you're reviving a 5year old thread Gta IV actually does seperate the modded games from the non modded games. Do you have any mods installed yourself? If you want to play multiplayer without people using cheats then you need to have a clean game.

The game seperates the players who have a clean version of gta from those who have modded it (even if it's just a small addon). Occassionally some hackers still manage to get on those clean server but that doesn't happen that often (in my experience)
