i can tell you that the problem is not with windows 7 - i am running gears of war on windows 7 with no issues at all & windows 7 is not stopping games for windows live from connecting to the internet as i have 4 or 5 live enabled games (gta4/resident evil 5 etc) & never have any issue sighning in to games for windows live (online) - try uninstalling games for windows live & re-installing it - maybe the install got screwed up - but its not windows 7 that is your issue - also when you say all the ports are open have you assighned these ports to the actual ip address of your pc ? - just opening the ports wont cut it they need to be direced to the actual pc - so first set up a static ip for your pc then assighn the ports to the static ip you have created for it

Now I can sign in and play the game fine.
Unfortunately, that did not work for me. Thanks for trying

i can tell you that is definately not windows 7s problem - i am running gears on windows 7 & have never had any issues with it
Just because YOU don't have any issues does not mean it's not W7's fault, stop being self-centric.

Problem WAS with Windows 7. I did a clean install of W7, installed all the apps I used before and Gears of War has no problems connecting to Live. Problem is I still don't know what was wrong :/ Thanks for tips about re-installing GfWL software and tutorial (sic!) for port forwarding but that was covered pages ago.

As I tried virtually anything to solve this problem and couldn't solve it, I'm affraid I can't help you SRLeMere. My 'solution' which was just brute force really, was doing a clean install of Windows 7. Still, it would be nice to know what was wrong...
