Let me just start by assuring everyone, I did read every post I could find about this on google.
Wiihacks has 4 threads on this subject but none of them have a clear solution when all options are tried.
I go to multiplayer, it tries to connect, and I get no server response, check internet connection. I am playing reflex right now so i know the net works.
I have the router set to DMZ on the wii
I have USBloader the newest version, IOS 250.
Game settings: reload game OFF, region free+force NTSC+system default. AND i tried setting everything to global. nothing made a difference.
Online works for mario kart, and reflex backups.
SM8E52 NTSC copy
why wont it go online? does the base IOS matter (58 or 57?)

You are playing the NTSC version - which will not work for multiplayer. You need the PAL version which is SM8P52.
But do not fear, you do not have to re-download MW3! Below is a link to an excellent mw3 guide.
Click on the "I can't accept the in-game update..." tab and follow the instructions to convert your game to the PAL version.
It should now work (worked for me) - enjoy!
@wiiman18. Please do NOT bump your thread within 24hrs as per site rules.
isoguy is right. You need to change the game I.D so the wii thinks it's a PAL
version. You don't need to use region patch afterwards.
Infact, I doubt you even did it as you state because after your bump,it leads
me to believe that you're an impatient person.
I suggest you go to the guide isoguy linked and try again. It works.
@isoguy. Just an FYI. WiiHacks does NOT support piracy, so be careful when
talking about downloading games.
Lastly, OPs question should've been asked in the MW3 guide, so this thread is closed.
