So for the longest time i couldn't host a game. People would join (from the master list of servers) but when i hit the start match button everyone would time out. But i solved my problem and maybe it will work for other. First off i open the required ports for cod:waw. being 28960, 3074 udp and 28960 tcp. But you need more ports open for some reason cod:waw uses some ports that ps3 and xbox360 versions use like 3075 and 5332. So i opened those ports alway a full list can be found from activision support. But the real kicker is setting a max and min ping for your hosted game. If i set a max ping limit people have problems if i keeep the max and min ping at zero (0) i have no problems hosting anytime i want don't even need to send out invites. if anyone needs help let me know. i wioll help you best i can.
i still try to invite my friends first and open the server up to the public. also if you are using a firewall don't forget to allow the ports threw that also.

There are software firewalls and hardware firewalls, check both (you might not have a hardware one, but if you're going through a router it's likely you do).

if want to use max ping... set to what you want....then after everyone has joined ...set it back to zero before launching game... this will give you a lag free game and eliminate the sync errors and dropping of players
