Fix New World ‘Unable to establish connection with the server’ Error
Corporation and game studios never officially confirm some solutions like using a VPN. But for the New World ‘Unable to establish connection with the server’ Error, this seems to be the most effective fix. Read below all the fixes you can try to resolve the error.
Fix 1: Use a VPN
Put simply, a VPN is a software that allows you to access the server of another location. It directs you to the server in another country and you access the internet via that server. A lot of users on various forums have confirmed that the connection problem with New World can be fixed by using a VPN. We have created a list of the best free VPNs in the market, you can refer the list. Simply install the ExpressVPN, select a server and launch the game. Under most circumstances, your error will be fixed unless, the connection problem is caused by a third-party software or any other program running on your system. In that case, refer to the next post.
Fix 2: Perform a Clean Boot
With so many games, third-party software that forcefully inject themselves between operations cause various types of errors. Hence, to resolve the New World connection error you must suspend all unnecessary programs and perform a clean boot. Here is the step you can follow.
- Press Windows Key + R and type msconfig, hit Enter
- In General tab, uncheck Load startup items
- Go to the Services tab
- Check Hide all Microsoft services
- Now, click Disable all
- Go to the Startup tab and click on Open Task Manager link
- Select each task, right-click, and click on Disable (Do this one at a time for all tasks)
- Restart the system and launch the game.
If the game works, enable one program at a time to identify the specific program that’s causing the issue.
Fix 3: Disable the Antivirus or Windows Defender
Turn off the Windows Defender or the antivirus software to troubleshoot the issue. Sometimes that security software might block certain functions of the game. If the game works after disabling the software, you need to provide exclusion to the game executable and Javelin_x64 on your firewall.
