For some reason when I go to play bl1 remastered for xb1 it will not allow me to go online, it says that I am not connected to the net yet I am able to do all other online features with the xb1
Moved you to the right spot. There do appear to be some connection issues (not unlike the XB1 version of BL2). You could try doing similar things to clear the issue, such as doing a console power restart, toggling your game to offline and back, etc.
You could also try finding someone via the On-line play section and seeing if using the XBox game invite works better than the in-game options.
If the problem persists after that, at the moment all I can suggest is submitting a support ticket
