I've tried searching around the web for this but everything I have found has either been for X-Box or back from 2008-2009.
Essentially when I play GTA IV multi-player I have a difficult time connecting to games. I can get into 1 out of every 4 or 5 games I try to. When I try to join a game it gives me the loading screen for awhile, and the says "Disconnected from game session". This happens 99% when I try to join bigger games of 8+ people, and 80% for smaller games. Usually I keep trying and it works.
Also, if by chance I succeed at joining a big game of 12+ or enough people join my smaller game to make it big, I am usually kicked out after a few minutes (it says everyone has left). I know it isn't my internet connection because it is 15 Mbs, and I know it isn't slowdown in my computer that is causing it - any ideas what can be done?
My router has UPnP enabled but in my network information tab in GFWL UPnP is Not Available, and NAT Restriction is on Moderate.
Any help would be much appreciated.

With this I was still getting dropped and looking at my network information (GFWL -> Settings -> Network Information) I saw my UPnP was not available and NAT was Medium,
I use AVG firewall so I went into firewall settings added GTAIV.exe and RGSClauncher.exe as "Allow for All" in application settings.
When I checked network information in GFWL I saw that UPnP was Available and NAT was Open. Ever since then it seems to be working.
