Membership Denies Access to ANY BuddyPress content

Membership denies access to all BuddyPress content. Tried removing ALL rules from levels. Access denied. All levels/subscriptions are public and active. All rules removed, still Membership denies access (redirects to no access page) for any BuddyPress url. if urls are as follows: mysite/activity DENIED myside/groups DENIED mysite/profile DENIED etc... if, however I have mygroups/members/USER/activity CAN ACCESS, mygroups/members/USER/profile CAN ACCESS it works. What's going on? Please, help!
