Another player shared that he experienced the network issue when he was playing "Gears of War 2." He added that he was looking for the Horde map he is usually playing on Xbox 360.
Xbox Live sign-in going down only on the Xbox 360 (and when trying to play 360 games on an X) at the exact moment I'm trying to find out which Horde map I used to play in Gears of War 2 is some incredibly random timing.— Marc Normandin (@Marc_Normandin) October 6, 2021

On the other hand, 19% of them can't access or open their account, while 65% have server connection errors. The issue started on Oct. 7. If you are still having some of these Xbox Live issues, here are some of the fixes you can try.
How To Fix Xbox Live Issues?
Digital Trends reported that the first thing you need to do is check if the servers are really down. However, you also need to check the actual error codes and look for them on Google.
One of the error codes you might encounter is 0x80048051, which is about a Microsoft account problem. On the other hand, if you can't connect on Xbox Live, there's a high chance that the issue is with your IP settings.
You need to access your account's Advanced settings and activate your IP Settings. After that, you must restart your console and see if you can now connect. But, since Xbox has already confirmed that they are working on it, the best thing you need to do is wait for the company to fix the servers.
