I’ve put this in the tutorial category because for a while, myself and many others have been receiving several messages about failures to connect to the Server. After a long time of getting feedback from developers, I have found a solution to the issue.
The cause of the issue:
Home networks sometimes if overloaded or throttled (bandwidth wise) can struggle to connect to DNS Servers. DNS servers are defaulted though our internet routers to be identical to the IP Address of the router.
By changing the DNS to Googles Default DNS Number (188.8.131.52) this changes your DNS but keeps your routers IP, which Dosent effect anything negatively.
This works across all Apple devices, I’ve done several tests of my own, I do not know if this will work for Android devices. But I hope someone will test this for android if they are having issues of they’re own.
This Message is the most common notification that something is wrong, and it can last hours.
So here’s how we fix the problem.
- Open “Settings”
- Click on the “Wi-Fi” Tab
- The network your connected to should have a tick, click on the “i” icon
Notice the Router and DNS IP Address’ are identical at this point
- You will want to clear the DNS Address
- Enter googles default IP (184.108.40.206)
- Open infinite flight
Now the issue should be resolved
As above, I’ve tested this many times a short while ago, and it worked fine for me. If anyone has this issue, and it Dosent solve the problem, please DM me immediately.
Please also note this issue is not a Internet Connection Failure, if your internet is down, and recieve the same message that is a different issue, however, if it’s not down, and you can’t connect, try this. Please do not confuse these two seperate issues.
