Gamertag not downloading

hi there,

searched the forums but its quite buggy, getting several blank pages..
got a problem with tinker and fallout3 pc.
i have gfwl, with my x360 gamertag showing in there. when starting up one of those two games, i cant log in.
i mean, i choose "choose existing gamertag" enter my information and then it says "downloading profile, this could take some minutes" or something like that. but after 1 minute all i get is "couldnt download the gamertag. this could be a problem with the live service or your internet connection".

i tried plugging in my lan cable instead of my wlan, but still the same thing. firewall is open for gfwl, all settings as they should be, it just wont let me download the profile on my notebook.

any help appreciated.
bought the damn fallout3 collectors edition for 5 euros at a local retailer, just to have that stupid bobblehead on my desk. :-)

I never had an issue with Fallout3 and live. but make sure the game is up to date. I don't know if its the case with GFWL (since my install was) but at least on the xbox, if you don't have all available patches installed, you can't play online. You should be able to check through the GFWL application (not the game itself) to see if patches are available.

done all that, even registered my fallout3 copy with live. it simply wont let my download the profile i use for my 360.

im able to launch the gfwl application, no problems at all. downloaded tinker trough that.
fallout 3 patched, everything up to date. nothing pirated, everything fresh and clean
both games load normally, and in the main menus where i am prompted to sign in with live, i enter my contact information, then its loading (the bar is not moving) and "cannot download profile blablabla connection failed" altough there seems to be no problem at all with the connection to live o.O

oh drm is such a piece of a** ...

This has nothing to do with DRM, derp derp.
Do you have any kind of limits on downloading/uploading?
