Strange XBL Issue

Did anyone else have issues with XBL yesterday afternoon/evening (28/10)?
When I switched the 360 on, it wouldn't connect to XBL while I was in any game (tried Halo 3, Forza 2, and COD3).
So I used the guide button with a game loaded, and tried to login manually, to which it wouldn't, but as soon as it came out of the game to run the troubleshooter it signed in before it even started the tests.
So I went back to the game, and got disconnected from live again.  Undecided
If I quit to the dashboard, voila, connected to XBL straight away automatically.
Then if I went back to a load a game up, I get "disconnected from XBL".  Roll eyes
I haven't tried it today so hopefully it will be ok.
Typically all my connection tests are fine, my router is fine, my xbox NAT status is open, the xbox has a reserver local ip in my router, it's a hard wired connecton etc.
Does this sound like an ISP issue, or more of an XBL issue?
Cheers
Griff

Hi Griff,
Whilst I don't have an answer to your problem, I can confirm that XBOX Live was working fine for me yesterday with generic default settings on my router.

Re: Strange XBL Issue

Yup same here. It just Major Nelson is not working properly. As in all of the features are not working and a few CSS files can not load, presumably they are hosted on xbox.com(theres MS Logic for you Wink  ).
Just out of interest(please don't take this as being spiteful) could you read what i said the other day and maybe comment on why the word filter is so strict:
