Shift Code Fails

When entering a known, unexpired shift code, I get an error stating that the connection has failed and that I should check my ethernet cables/wifi.

I am connected to Xbox Live, so that’s not the issue.

Any help?

SHiFT connects to different servers than the XBL ones. If you launch TPS, the last check as the game menu appears is signing into SHiFT: sometimes it seems to take quite a while to connect, so you might want to launch and see if it’s being successful. (Don’t remember the sequence for BL2, which does things a little differently) It may just be that the connection timed out if traffic is really busy?

Same issue here.

If I do it at the shift station in Concordia while playing multiplayer it even kicks the other people out of my game.
