There are supposed work arounds to becoming host, but generally having the strongest internet connection will suffice. Usually it will happen during the pre-game lobby or through in-game host migration. Sometimes, as I've recently experienced on Black Ops, the host migration will pick weaker connections so everyone except host will lag an skip everywhere.

It usually chosses the lower ones though because my connection is always at a constant 3 bars and everyone else is below mine and it chooses them

Upload a large video file to youtube and then sear for a game when in a lobby on your own cancel the upload and then players will end up going into your lobby which when the game starts you will become host.

You can only become host of a game online if you have the best connection between all the players. There isn't much you can really do.

Also, it doesnt work to be waiting in the lobby. Other people can't join with me, nor me with them. Sucks...
