Ok... heres a guide how to do it:
First DL this:
After its DL's and installed... you need to go here to register for a username and password:
Just click "Sign Up" at the top. Then fill in the fields, and confirm your name via Email.
Ok... Now after youve done that... Press START on your taskbar.
Go to Programs> All Programs> Xlink Kai> Kai Configure.
Setup the Network Card, so that its not auto detect. Choose the card your PC uses to connect to the Internet. You can also enter your Default Xtag and Password as well.. and then press ok. (Look at image below for reference)
Start Xlink Kai. Type in your Username and Password (if its not already there). Then Press the GLobe thingy at the top of the Dashboard. Choose Playstation 3, then First Person Shooters, then Call of Duty (whichever one you want to play) (this will make more sense when you actually get into doing this process).
Now to check if Xlink is configured properly. Click the Magnifying Glass. Under Network Reachable it should read "YES". ANd where it says Network Card, it should read YOUR network card, and it should say Locked "YES" (Look at image below)
(Note: If yours says "Not Yet" for Network Unreachable, dont worry about it. It takes a bit of time for it to change over to YES. Jsut fiddle around in teh arenas (globe button) until it changes to yes. Also read below on how to make it say YES).
Go into your Firewall on your PC and turn it off. Then you need to forward a few ports. This option is hit or miss. For some it was necessary, for others it was necessary not to do it. So its a trial and error procedure. You need to Find the IP of yur PC that is running Xlink Kai. And then you need to forward ports range 30000-34522 to that IP. Forwarding your ports COULD help make your Network reachable change from "Not Yet" to "YES". So I would forward them if you know how.
After your Xlink looks similar to this continue to the next step:
NOW, go boot up your PS3.
Go to internet connection settings. Change everything to AUTO detect. Enable UpNp. (Custom -> Auto IP -> Auto MTU -> Do not set DHCP-> Auto DNS-> No need to test connection. When it hits that screen, jsut press circle. That may not be the exact order... but its close enough lol).
Start Multiplayer of the game you want to play. Blops or MW2. GO into LAN. And click "Find games".
(NOTE: Your INternet settings on your ps3 need to all be set to Auto detect as mentioned above).
Now go back to your Xlink Kai interface and press the Magnifying glass. Then press the little folder views icon undernath the maginfying glass. If you see a bunhc of numbers and the Background of them are BLUE, you are good to go. If they are red... you need to retry this process.
If it is Blue, then proceed to the Xlink Kai GLobe icon. Go back into teh game section of your choice (the one you booted up). Choose a game you want to get in. Then go on PS3 and enter that game.
Pressing the green arrow next to teh server you want to get in will allow the game to show up on your PS3 list under Find Matches (or whateer the Lan option is that looks for games).
Its as easy as that.
Oh and to start your own game.... Press this:
After doing that, go "Create a match" in whatever game you are playing. Choose any options you want for that gamemode. After you have succesfully entered int the game on your PS3 then others can join your game via the list of games.
Hope that helps, and is informative enough. Its a bit of a process but can be done in 30 minutes setup time. After teh 1st setup, it takes 2 minutes to connect to Xlink, then boot up PS3 and play.
Again, any questions.... just ask.
My name on Xlink is MileySquirts, feel free to add me, or join my games. If I lock my game on Xlink the password will always be rushingftw.
