Roblox connection issues
A simple guide for solving this common ROBLOX problem quickly and effectively by GetHuman
Hi there, Get Human has created the following guide to help you:
1.) Make Sure You're Using a Supported Browser
Make sure you are using the most updated version of your browser to Play ROBLOX. For ROBLOX Studio, you will also need to have the most updated version of Internet Explorer. If you are having issues playing with your current browser, please try playing on a different browser, such as Firefox or Chrome.
2.) Reset Your Internet Options (Windows Only)
Many times, a simple reset of your Internet Options is all you need. Please keep in mind that these steps will need to use Internet Explorer, but will fix many problems even for players that use other browsers such as Chrome or Firefox. Please try the following :
Open Internet Explorer (this browser specifically)
Open the gear icon > Internet options
Open the Advanced tab
Click the reset button
Close Internet Explorer
Try playing again
3.) Check Your Browser's Security Settings
You will need to ensure that the security settings on your browser allow for ROBLOX. If these settings are set too high, it can cause a variety of problems ranging from what is listed at the top of this article to website issues such as buttons/links not responding.
4.) Check Wireless Connection
You can rule out the wireless connection by switching to a wired connection if possible. If it's not the connection, or if you can't try a wired connection, then check your firewall's settings.
5.) Remove/Disable any Ad-blocker Browser Add-Ons
Browser Add-Ons/Extensions can cause a number of issues, and in particular, Ad-blockers can stop a game from fully loading.
6.) Make Sure the Appropriate Ports are Open
The ports that ROBLOX uses is dependent on the Operating System used. The port range is currently UDP 49152 - 65535, so keeping all these ports open should allow ROBLOX to connect to your router properly.
7.) Configure Your Firewall and/or Router
A lot of antivirus or internet security software tries to control which programs can access the internet. Often, these programs err on the side of caution and by default no program is allowed access.
8.) Reinstall ROBLOX
As an extra measure, please reinstall ROBLOX.
