    Same problem here as described by sigma3002. Cannot use my account anymore to play online with this internet connection while my roommate can still log on into his account. I did not change anything and it worked fine yesterday in the morning.

    Same thing here. Moreover, i've deleted my profile to see if it can solve the problem. But now i can't download it :(

    I cannot sign in to GFWL on my new Surface Pro. When I try to log in it tried to download my profile and fails every time. It doesn't matter what game I try it from. Age of Empires Online and Tinker both fail the same way. I've gone through all the troubleshooting steps on the GFWL help site, enabled uPnP on the router, applied all apdates, and even completely turned off the firewall. No joy.

    What should i do to resolve?

    Oh thank God!  I think I have the solution, because the following worked for me when I was experiencing the "Cannot connect to LIVE service" error.

    It's not a connectivity issue, it's an issue with the blankety-blank GFWL code.  Whoever wrote the bit where it attempts to connect didn't wrap it in a transaction or write a proper handler:  it makes a call to the .NET Framework, the GFWL app doesn't install the Framework, so if you don't have the right .NET Framework installed, the dead call bubbles up to the generic, "firewall or service" error message.

    Here's what fixed the problem for me, and if you're this far along in the thread I hope it does it for you because like me you've been through a lot:

    Install the .NET Framework.

    If you're on Windows 7, .NET 3.5 is a "Windows Feature" in the OS.  Windows 8 offers .NET 4.0.  When you "Turn Windows Features On and Off", the default checkbox for the .NET Framework just does the high-level objects.  Expand the checkbox and you'll see two or more options that relate to connectivity (WCF, MSMQ, HTTP, etc.).  I checked every sub-option under .NET Framework, let it install, rebooted, and was good to go.  Rebooting is important.

    For Windows XP, download and install the .NET Framework separately.  Both Win 7 and Win 8 say that the "Windows Feature" includes older versions of the Framework.  You can install multiple versions if that's what it takes, and here's the page where Microsoft links to all of them:

    www.microsoft.com/.../download

    If this doesn't help...

    Given the age of games like Halo 2, Fallout 3, and Gears of War, it's probably the .NET 2.0 Framework.  Download that and/or the 3.0 or 3.5 and with luck that will help you.

    I really hope this post stops the madness for other people.  Good luck to you.
