Your settings were messed up? How? Because I'm attempting to access the market and its not letting me. I thought it was just because I'd been playing all day (snow day) but nope. damn thing will not load the purchase screen. no one knows whats wrong?
Mines is a bit weird too over the last couple of days - when I sign in the little spinning circle thing goes on forever... I'm on live because it makes the noise to say friends are online but the dashboard just won't load. If I start a disc but quit back
to the dashboard then it displays......
If the Xbox LIVE service is available, try the next solution.
If there is an Xbox LIVE service alert, try again later when the Xbox LIVE service is available.
If you still get the error, try the next solution.
Solution 2: Open network ports
If you have a firewall or are connected to a school or work network, you might need to open network ports for your Xbox 360 console to communicate with Xbox LIVE. See Network

also, its just going very very slowly like when i try to sign in to my profile or look up games or even loading game like goin into my arcade even, and it will tell me im not connected to xbox live when i am because i can still see all my friends and stuff
but everything on the dashboard will say connect to xbox live and all the pages are black
