There are a few different reasons why you may be encountering error code Diver, so follow these steps to fix your Modern Warfare 2 install:

  • The most likely source is that there is either server maintenance or an update - simply restart your game or check out the Infinity Ward Twitter.
  • Check your internet connection. It may be that your console or PC has lost connection to the internet, so ensure that your WiFi password is entered correctly and your device is connected to your router.
  • Restart your router. If you're having trouble getting your device to connect to your router, or you can't seem to access the internet, it might be time to reset your router. Turn it off at the wall for at least 10 seconds before switching it back on again.
  • Check for updates or verify the integrity of your game files. This is the last resort but may end up fixing your Modern Warfare 2 issues.
    • On PlayStation, press the 'Options' button on the Modern Warfare 2 icon and choose the 'Check for updates' option.
