# 1. Check the Server Status of Halo Infinite

Before you proceed with the following fixes, we recommend you check the Halo Infinite server issues first. If there is something wrong with the game servers, Halo Infinite can't connect to server. Here you can check the Halo Infinite server status via the official support Twitter or the Downdetector site.

# 2. Restart Your PC or Console

If Halo Infinite can't connect to server, the simple and quickest way is to perform a restart of your PC or console. By doing so, all the temporary cache and glitches can be cleared.

For PC:

  1. Click on the Start menu at the bottom left corner of your screen and select the Power
  2. Select the Restart option from the pop-up menu.
  3. Relaunch the game and see if Halo Infinite not connecting to server issue gets solved.

For Xbox:

  2. Unplug the power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
  3. Re-plug the power cable and press the Xbox button to turn on the console.

# 3. Check Your Internet Connection

The Halo Infinite connection issues are often related to network connections. If you have a weak internet connection, then the game may fail to connect to its servers. So, we recommend you check the internet connection.

Step 1. Unplug the internet router from the wall socket.

Step 2. Hold the Power button on the back of your router for about 15 seconds until the router is turned off completely.

Step 3. Then wait for at least 30 seconds, re-plug the router into the socket and press the Power button to restart it.

Step 4. If it still doesn’t work, use a wired connection or contact your ISP to optimize the network connection.

# 4. Close All Bandwidth-heavy Apps and Services

If the “Halo Infinite disconnected from local network” issue still occurs, you can try closing all bandwidth-hogging apps and services in Task Manager. Here’s how:

Step 1. Right-click the empty space on the taskbar and select Task Manager from the context menu.

Step 2. Navigate to the Processes tab and click on the Network column to sort the active processes.

To do so, you can click the Network icon at the bottom, and then select the VPN that you want to use, and click on the Connect button. If there isn’t a VPN on your computer, you can add one by reading the post “How to Set up a VPN on Windows 10 PC.

# 6. Switch to a Different DNS Server

Some users reported that they managed to fix the Halo Infinite connection issues by changing the DNS server. Here you can try switching to Google Public DNS. For that:

Step 2. Right-click your current network and select Properties.

Step 3. Navigate to the Networking tab and select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), and then click on Properties.

# 7. Check the NAT Type

Step 1. Press the Win + I keys to open the Settings app and select Gaming.

Step 2. Select Xbox Networking from the left-side panel, and then Windows will automatically detect the connection status.

Step 3. Scroll down the right sidebar to the Xbox Live multiplayer section, and then check if the NAT Type status says Open. If not, you may encounter the “Halo Infinite disconnected from local network” issue. Click on Fix it to troubleshoot the problem.

Step 4. If it still doesn’t work, you can open the elevated Command Prompt window like Step 5 in #7, and then type the following commands in order and hit Enter after each one.

  • netsh int teredo set state disable
  • netsh int teredo set state type=default
  • netsh int teredo set state enterpriseclient
  • netsh int teredo set state servername=teredo.remlab.net

Once done, check if the NAT Type is open and the Halo Infinite lost connection to server issue gets resolved.

# 8. Reinstall the Game

If the Halo Infinite server issues persist after you try all the above fixes, you may have to consider reinstalling the game. Right-click the Start menu and select App and Features or Programs and Features, and then select the game from the list of installed programs and click on Uninstall.
