Well, whatever the problem was, it's apparently been fixed, as the latest update in a very crowded Major Nelson post announces everything should be back to normal.
"I have been informed by e that these issues have been resolved. You should have no further problems," writes Major Nelson in the post. This comes after announcing the problems were solved not once, but twice, only to have some gamers continue to complain about disconnection issues. While all the problems should finally be fixed now, if you're still somehow experiencing problems, your best bet is probably to contact Xbox customer support.
In what was apparently an unrelated issue, Xbox Live was also down for maintenance early this morning in preparation of the launch of the New Xbox Experience this Wednesday. Let's just hope all the gremlins have indeed been shaken out of the system, and the launch will go nice and smoothly."
