Roblox is a multiplayer game that allows users to design and create their mini-games inside the servers and each of these servers contains hundreds to thousands of players. This game relies on its engine to create and code these games which save users the hassle. Quite recently, there have been a lot of reports of an “Error Code 6” which occurs while launching the game client.
In this article, we will discuss the reasons due to which this issue might be triggered and also provide viable solutions to fix it completely. Make sure to follow the guide carefully and accurately to avoid further complications.
What Causes the ‘Error Code 6’ on Roblox?
After receiving numerous reports from multiple users, we decided to investigate the issue and came up with a set of solutions to fix it completely. Also, we looked into the reasons due to which it is triggered and listed them as follows.
- Internet Connection: This issue is mostly related to the internet connection which prevents the game from communicating with its servers. The internet’s DNS cache might have been corrupted due to which the connection is being interrupted or maybe the router’s firewall is blocking the connection from being made.
- IPv4 Configuration: It is possible that some of the IPv4 Configurations aren’t set properly due to which the issue is being triggered. There are two options in the configuration settings for IPv4, it allows the users to either select the settings manually or automatically. If the computer is configured to identify the configurations automatically, sometimes, it might not detect them accurately due to which this error might be triggered.
Now that you have a basic understanding of the nature of the problem, we will move on towards the solutions. Make sure to implement these in the specific order in which they are provided to avoid conflict.
Solution 1: PowerCycling Internet Router
In some cases, there might be a build-up of corrupt DNS cache or other startup configurations in the router. Therefore, in this step, we will be completely clearing this cache by power cycling the router. For that:
- Unplug the power from the router.
- Press and hold the power button of the router for at least 10 seconds.
- Plug the power back in and wait for the router to start.
- Try to connect to the game and check to see if the issue persists.
Solution 2: Changing IPv4 Configuration
If the computer is failing to obtain the DNS Server Addresses automatically, this error might be triggered. Therefore, in this step, we will be opening the Network Properties and entering the DNS Server Addresses manually. For that:
- Press “Windows” + “R” to open Run prompt.
- Type in “ncpa.cpl” and press “Enter”.
- Right-click on the network that you are using and select “Properties”.
- Double-click on the “Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)” option.
- Check the “Obtain DNS Server Addresses Manually” option.
- Enter “126.96.36.199” In the primary address box and “188.8.131.52” in the secondary address box.
- Click on “OK” and check to see if the issue persists.
Solution 3: Switching Connection/Account
Since this issue is mostly related to the internet and the Account. It is advised that you first try to connect to the game using a different internet connection and check to see if that fixes the issue. If it does, it means that your ISP is responsible for blocking your connection to the game. You can contact them and check to see if they can help with your predicament. If that doesn’t fix your issue, try to sign in with a different account and check if it fixes the issue. In this way, you can determine if the issue is related to your account or your connection and then troubleshoot accordingly.
