It all began about three days ago when my friend and I came back to play some games we had gotten on our Xbox's after not really touching the systems for about a month. The first day, everything was perfectly fine. The second day, he would begin to disconnect from the party that i was hosting. Gameplay was not affected at all and there was no lag. He had no issues when it came to rejoining the party, but he would simply be forcibly ejected from the party. The third day, yesterday, we had similar issues. I left to go to work and, upon coming back, we tried again with him hosting the party. The disconnects became more frequent and there would be times when the only way I could rejoin is by direct invite only. We checked our connections and tried again today, and the party fell apart after five minutes.
I don't know if it is related in anyway, but I had some difficulty loading the pages on Xbox.com. Other websites, such as facebook, loaded quickly and perfectly fine.
