I get no errors, everything seems to be working fine. I can view netflix just fine, etc. It is just Halo that has stopped working. A couple of weeks ago I went through the article about opening my NAT. I successfully did that and now no longer get the error message that my NAT is not open. I have played for about 3 weeks like this, but I didn't really notice any difference.
I noticed the problem about a week ago. One night the connections seemed to slow a little between games. By slowing I mean that setting up a match was slower and slower. Then the next night it would not set up a match. I waited for almost an hour while it said "Looking for player...". Every once in a while a player or two would pop up. The would stay there for a minute or two and then either they would drop off or I would get a message about "Restaring search". Tonight there are 10,000 players in Team Swat, but I can't create a match. A couple of times a player has poped on the list for a minute or two but then they leave or I get the "Restarting search". Restrictions are set to "NONE (FASTEST)" and nothing is set in psych profile.
In Halo when I look at Network Status I see Upstream Bandwidth: Warning, NAT Rating: Open, Packet Loss Rate: Low/Excellent. When I do a speed test (speakeasy.net) I get 16 Mbit Download and 2 Mbit upload consistenly.
So, for a couple of days now I cannot make any Multi Player connections. Please help!
Thanks in advance.
