Try setting your xbox's DNS servers in network settings to:

8.8.8.8 for primary

&

8.8.4.4 for secondary

 

I had this issue for weeks and it solved it.

Ok, I see.  You didn't mention any troubleshooting steps already taken in your first post so I didn't know what, if anything that you have done to attempt to resolve the issue.

I am having the EXACT same symptoms.

 

Have you found any resolutions?  I have a open ticket with Xbox LIVE as well.  No movement there yet.

I had the same exact error and changing the DNS didn't help, I fixed it by doing this:

1. In the Xbox console give yourself a static IP, you can leave the DNS at DHCP or Dynamic (I suggest making it the same as the dynamically assigned one to avoid conflict).
2. In the Router delete/disable any port forwarding rules and/or triggers for that IP.
3. In the Router enable DMZ and add your static IP to it.

NOTE: You can leave your firewall enabled in the router.
