Unable to connect to GFWL (event viewer - 0x8015190e) earlier error was 80072751

I installed Bioshock 2 and GTA 4 EFLC yesterday and after signing in GFWL gave me an error 80072751 when it tried to update the game. After searching these forums I tried several things -

Allowed through Windows Firewall

Opened ports on router (even though uPnP is enabled)

Reset TCP/IP

Clean boot

Disabled anti-virus (Avast 5)

Ran IGD test (passed)


None of these solved the problem so I manually downloaded and installed Bioshock 2 (patch 3) and GTA 4 EFLC Now GFWL won't even sign in on starting the game. The event viewer shows -

   1, 0, 0, 1
   3.2.0003.0 (WGX_XLIVE_v3.02_RTM.100402-1646) C:\Windows\system32\xlive.dll
   0x8015190e XLive Logon Failed 00:26:79:56:5A:F7 0xfb0000000061e7a6 LogonHR == 0x8015190e Games for Windows - LIVE DLL


EDIT: Forgot to add that Dow2: Chaos Rising, which was working earlier is also giving the same error now.

I'm using Win 7 x64.


I finally got GFWL to work by just disabling uPnP on my ADSL model/router.

Sorry I forgot to update here but I had almost given on on GFWL games.
