Can't connect to Games for Windows Live

Yesterday i played halo 2 online on my windows 7 PC normally, today it won't let me sign into Xbox Live anymore. I can connect just fine on my 360, signing my profile in without problems. But when i try it on the PC it says i can't sign into Xbox Live because there is a problem with Xbox live or my firewall, no error code or something.

I haven't changed anything manually, today i tried to turn off my firewall, but that didn't change anything.
When i look for the network status it says that i'm not signed in for UPnP and internet IP adresse, if that's important.

Thanks for this. Glad to know it's a known issue and not just me! Hopefully they'll be able to fix it soon as we don't have long left now before the Halo 2 servers are shut down!

I've been trying for the past few weeks, it never worked. I tried recovering my GFWL profile, but to no avail. Even though I have all the gamerscore, I really want to participate in this community event StayOnTarget is trying to build up (since I never joined a community event before). It blows since everyone's having some trouble. Hopefully the issue will be resolved before the servers are shut down on the 15th....

I just tried it again now and it's still not working for me right now. I had deleted my profile thinking it might work if I recover it, but now I'm unable to even do that until this gets fixed!

The fix for me was to not sign in via the profile saved on my computer. I had to select the option to sign in as somebody new. Worked like a charm for me.

Yeah the GFWL servers are having major issues at the moment. I have 2 PCs and multiple GFWL accounts, some work and some don't, then just now I lost access to all of them with the same error:



Also FYI Halo 2 is shutting down their PC servers soon: http://www.polygon.com/2013/1/17/388...down-on-feb-15

Exact issue I'm getting. No idea how to get past it. Just keep trying?

If anyone is using Hamachi, that needs to be shut off in order to connect.

My friend and I were both booted from live this morning after a couple hours. After that neither one of us could connect again. So I know its nothing we're doing, its gotta be something on the windows live side. What a great time for this to start happening!

I was able to actually get one. Hopefully it can stay stable. Looks like it's slowly being fixed. I had to download an update for Live.

Still can't connect. I've been experiencing this problem for over a month now. Don't know what fucking gypsy curse I've been put under.

Yes, you can still log in to play the single player, and I'm pretty sure the multiplayer servers are still up, they never got round to taking them offline.

Yeah, on July 1st, no more multiplayer! But I'm pretty sure single player and LAN will still be available.

I played a couple MP games last night, still works great.

Are the single player achievements still available?

Any confirmation they will still be after the server cut??
