perhaps your cd key would be in partnership with the cod4 master server.

If so, it would be up to the master server to decide when it can refresh. Usually it takes 10-15 minutes.

just reset your modem, and whilst doing that verify your serial code alot. Just spam the shit out of the button. If it's not saying Verification code seems to be valid. THen you have a problem. If its saying it is valid, just wait for your modem to boot back up and the problem should be fixed.

Dont restart ur modem like that. All you have to do is restart ur modem by turn it of for 5 secs and turn it back on! if it doesn;t work......try it again and if that doesn't work u could (correct me if i am rong) do a guid sarch and see if anyone has ur Cd Key AND if all else fails contact activision.

Good luck, Reeve.
