I recently replaced my home network with a more robust wired one, and when I did I specifically set the NAT to “Open” (my father had it set to “moderate” before) and did everything I could think of to improve the connection for Live. The result has been bittersweet… My connection is much faster and more stable, but I’m having some trouble with Reach.
My rank in the lobby is set to private and the colors/display model for my spartan are set to the default. I press start and go to the armory and everything is as it should be there. I then access my service record and it loads up fine. Same with commendations. However, the menu option for “challenges” is grayed out, and highlighting it produces a message saying that challenges are currently unavailable.
The first day with the new network (happens to also have been right after the November update) this didn’t happen until after about an hour or so of playing. Yesterday it was like this from the moment Reach was booted up.
Have I missed something in setting up my network that could be blocking these specific features? (I can play online just fine) Is anyone else having these problems? What can I do?
