5Try using VPN.
6Check Genshin Impact's server status.

Reset Your Internet Connection Or Switch To Another Network

Your ISP/Mobile network seems to be under maintenance or encountering backend issues. This means that you temporarily need to switch your network to another one.

Relaunch Genshin Impact

The first thing you can do is to relaunch Genshin Impact. Close all instances of the game and its launcher. It's best to also close the programs from your Task Manager before launching it again.

Restart Your Computer

Restarting your computer might help as well since it resets the applications and processes opened, which might have been interfering with your connection for Genshin Impact.

Launch Genshin Impact Directly

You can try launching Genshin Impact directly from the game folder. Go to Genshin Impact game folder and click on "GenshinImpact.exe" to start it directly.

Try Using VPN

VPN is Virtual Private Network that allows you to create a private network from a public internet connection. This method has worked for some users for unknown reasons.

Check Server Status

During Maintenance, players will not be able to access Genshin Impact or any of their accounts. Check the server status from the official site to see if the server is down.

Change IP Address/Clear DNS Resolver Cache

The last thing you could do if the error still persists is to change your IP address and clear your DNS Resolver Cache in the process. Do this by opening your command prompt and typing the following:

  • ipconfig /release
  • ipconfig /renew
  • ipconfig /flushdns
