Since this error concerns your network connection, the first place to look at would be your Wi-Fi router, check if all the wires are connected properly or not and also check if your router internal settings are all properly configured or not. If all these are taken care of then try these solutions next –
- Restart your router once, try unplugging and then replugging the LAN and WAN wires in the router and then turn it off and then again turn it on. Also, try restarting your computer or laptop whatever device you are using.
- Try improving your Wi-Fi signal by bringing your router near your device or connect your device directly to your router via an ethernet cable.
- Don’t use any VPNs or proxies to connect to Netflix, as Netflix blocks these and does not allow people to stream using those. So if you are using any of them, then disconnect it and then try streaming Netflix.
- Also if you have modified your connection settings in your router in any way, you might want to try resetting it back to the settings that your service provider setup for you.
- If you are using a cellular network, then make sure that the network is strong and fast enough, even for your Wi-Fi network ensure that you have sufficient speed and bandwidth.
