Can't join parties or use private chat functions since latest update.

Posting a new thread as per request by Mister Fitzer.

In regards to the issue of not being able to join parties and/or use private chat functions.

I had this same issue for the first time last night.  My friend and I both updated on the same day last week.  The night we updated, everything worked perfectly the entire time.  

Last night when we got on, everything seemed to work fine except for anything chat related.  We couldn't join each other's party no matter which one of us started it first.  And neither of us could get private chat to work.  Playing online (BF3) and being connected to Live was working as usual.  

We both reset the consoles, routers, and modems.  Our NAT settings should not be an issue because neither of us have changed them since we got our routers.  Everything XBOX related has seemed to work flawlessly up until last night.

In addition to that, we just signed on this evening to try our luck again.  We both cleared our memory caches before getting online.  The problem still exists.

Hey Quamba, thank you for creating your own thread. Okay, I understand that you and your friend have previously opened the proper ports for LIVE, but the issue you're describing here definitely sounds like a NAT issue. Sometimes, updates can throw off previously configured settings, so I'd like both you and your friend to work through the steps in this guide. Once completed, can you please let me know if you're still experiencing the issue or not? :-)

I agree with you Bounty, it is really weird that i can not even join a party or lobby with my friends who do not have the beta. This seems really messed up and hopefully they will fix it soon. I have had two updates since the Beta testing has opened
