"The Profile could not be signed in to LIVE" -- there may be a network problem or the windows live ID service may not be available
All my settings are fine. I don't have connectivity issues with anything else. My GFWL Id has been verified all across the microsoft spectrum. Yet still, a day and probably a hundred tries later, after clicking submit on the GFWL license-key entry screen, I get "The Profile could not be signed in to LIVE
-- there may be a network problem or the windows
live ID service may not be available".

Can anybody help?

Duude. Just figured it out:

Windows 7:

click office button (start button).

in search field type "firewall".

Under control panel options, click "Allow a program through Windows Firewall".

click "change settings" button in upper right of window.

click "Allow another program"

Navigate to the following folder: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games for Windows - LIVE\Client"

Select GFWLClient.exe.

Check boxes for "Home/Work (Private)" and "Public".

Navigate to the following folder: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games for Windows - LIVE\Client"

Select GFWLive.exe

Check boxes for "Home/Work (Private)" and "Public".

Reboot.

Done. (Actually, mine required a GFWL administrator authorized update upon start-up) but it appears to be working fine now -- I just got smashed in an online match.

In retrospect, it sounds a lot simpler than it actually was to find this solution, and anything else I've ever used (non GFWL) never required any such additional permissions troubleshooting and settings; they were all handled appropriately during install.

Anyway. There you have it.

Update - Now its doing the same crap even though nothing has changed from 20 minutes ago when it was playing great. Conclusion - GFWL is just garbage. I'll stop posting on this now.

I realize this is a zombie post but it's also one of the first results on google for this error. In my case the problem was that I had two-factor authentication enabled for my Window LIVE account. The GFWL client does not appear to support this, so you have to turn it off if you want to sign in.
