3. Update your device drivers

Out-of-date drivers can cause a variety of issues. When you’re having problems with your game, one of the first things you should check is your device drivers, especially your network adapter driver. Additionally, even new computers can have outdated drivers because updates are released routinely.

There are mainly two ways you can update your device drivers: manually and automatically.

Option 1: Manually update your drivers

To manually update your device drivers, you can either go to the Device Manager to check for driver updates. Or head to your device’s manufacturers’ official websites to download and install new drivers. This will require a certain level of computer knowledge and can be a headache if you aren’t tech-savvy.

Option 2: Automatically update your drivers (recommended)

If you don’t have the time, patience and computer skills to update your drivers manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.

  • Type or paste msconfig and press Enter.

    msconfig
  • Under the General tab, click the Normal Startup option, and then click OK.

5. Select a different region

During peak hours, a certain server is more likely to be overloaded and it takes longer to connect to the server. Therefore, we suggest you avoid playing games during peak hours. Or you can change your server for all games or a specific game.

Change the server for all games

  1. Locate your profile picture on the upper-right corner. Then click on the down arrow next to it and click Log out.

    chnage region Battle.net
  2. Upon login, click the globe icon and select a different server.

    change the region Battle.net

Then enter your account info and log in.

Change the server for a specific game

  1. Click on the globe icon next to your game (eg. Diablo II: Resurrected) and select a different server.

If changing a different server doesn’t do the trick, try the next fix below.

6. Reset your network devices

If switching to a different server doesn’t help fix your issue, it’s high time you take some steps to improve your internet connection and make sure your router hasn’t become flooded with data, which will affect your connectivity.

  1. First, shut down all devices that are connected to your modem/ router.
  2. Unplug the modem and router and wait for about 1 minute
  3. Plug back in and allow them to completely boot up.
  4. Start your computer and allow it to completely boot up.

Apart from taking these steps, you would need to shut down other programs that access the internet, such as other games or download programs to optimize your internet connection.

If this doesn’t do the trick, proceed to the next fix.

7. Release/ Renew IP and flush DNS

Your expired IP addresses or other issues with a computer’s current IP address could be the reason for network connectivity issues. To solve the problem, you can release and renew your IP and flush DNS by following the instructions below.

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows logo + R keys simultaneously to open the Run box.
  2. Type in or paste CMD.

  3. Type or paste ipconfig /release in the command prompt and press Enter.
  4. Wait for a few seconds for a reply that the IP address has been released.
  5. Type or paste ipconfig /flushdns and press Enter.
  6. Then close the command prompt and attempt to make a connection.

If this doesn’t work for you, try the next fix below.

8. Uninstall and reinstall the app

  1. Close all Blizzard processes.
  2. On your keyboard, press the Windows logo + R keys simultaneously to open the Run box.
  3. Type or paste control appwiz.cpl and press Enter.
