If you are using a wireless connection to your router, we strongly recommend that you connect your PC via an Ethernet cable as a wired Internet connection is optimal for online gaming. Interference in your local network’s Wi-Fi can render your connection unstable and cause issues when trying to connect to the server.
If you are already wired and ready to go, a very simple, but effective step is to reset your router. We recommend that you consult your router’s manufacturer guide in order to determine what are the steps required to do so. More often than not, the steps involve unplugging it from the power source and plugging it back in after 30 seconds. Once your local network is back to normal, try logging back into the game.
If, unfortunately, you still cannot go online, please go through our Network Troubleshooting guide:

Understanding NAT Types:
NAT Types: Open, Moderate, Strict
Open NATs can connect to any of the three types. –> Probably the least common type
Moderate can only connect to open and moderate. –> Probably the most common type
Strict can ONLY connect to open.
Strict NATs are a difficult problem with peer-to-peer games. Since most people don’t have open NATs, the player with a strict NAT won’t be able to find many joinable games.
Also, if the player with a strict NAT does manage to join a game, if another player with a moderate NAT joins later, the player with the strict NAT gets kicked out.
The problem is even worse since it is sometimes difficult for software such as Games for Windows Live to detect which NAT type it is running behind, and can often report that the player has a moderate NAT when they actually have a strict NAT.
Another problem is that sometimes the ISP (Internet Service Provider) is also behind a NAT, which often means even if you have a direct connection to the internet (without a router/firewall), the ISP still acts as a strict NAT.
The following Ports need to be open on your router to connect to the 2K online servers:
TCP 80, UDP 88, UDP 3074, TCP 3074, UDP 53, TCP 53, UDP 3064, TCP 1795, TCP 1745, UDP 1795, UDP 1745
If you need assistance with opening these ports, please refer to the following website for more information (you will need to know your router brand and model, as the website guides are based on specific routers)
Here are some additional tips that have helped many players improve their connectivity:
Make sure your router’s firmware is upgraded the latest version (very important).
Disable any firewall or other network filtering for the game.
Enable uPnP (universal plug and play) on your router.
If you don’t care about security, enable DMZ (de-militarized zone) on your router for your PC’s address. This turns off all of your router’s firewall features for that specific PC.
Get a router that has the “Certified for Windows Vista” logo.
Contact your ISP and ask them what your DNS setting should be.
