err_connection_reset

  1. How can you fix the “ERR_CONNECTION_RESET” error?

    The 101 error on Chrome, Firefox, etc. can occur when the browser reaches the contacted web server, but the subsequent connection setup fails. As with many other problems on the web, there are several possible sources of error, which is why there is no general solution for solving the ERR_CONNECTION_RESET error. If the error message pops up, there are a number of solutions to try if simply refreshing the page or pressing the [F5] key doesn’t work.

     

    Solution 1: website and browser/system check

    We recommend that you check the functionality of the website you want to access before you attempt anything with the browser and system setup to rectify the “ERR_CONNECTION_RESET” problem. The first thing to do is to try and access any other website and if this doesn’t result in a 101 error, this is a clear sign that the problem lies just with the website in question. However, to ensure that the browser and system are not solely responsible for the connection problem, you should also try using a different browser. For example, if you open the web application with Firefox instead of Chrome, you can rule out a server-side problem.

     

    If you have done these different tests and have come to the conclusion that the error is probably something to do with the website operator, you should contact them. By doing this, you can make them aware of the problem or obtain information on what has been done already to fix the problem.

     

    Solution 2: check the proxy settings

    One of the most common reasons for the “ERR_CONNECTION_RESET” error is that a proxy server has been defined in the internet settings and this is blocking the connection setup. This can be entered automatically by plugins or add-ons that you have added to your browser. The simple solution in this case is to inspect the proxy settings and deactivate proxy access if necessary. To do this, first open the control panel and select “Internet Options.”

     

    Switch to the “Connections” tab and click on the “LAN settings” button:

     

    You have now reached the menu where you can find your system’s current proxy settings. If you see an entry under the category “Proxy server” here, you should deactivate it by unchecking the box “Use a proxy server for your LAN.”

    Save the changes by clicking on “OK” and then try to access the desired website again.

     

    Solution 3: clear the browser cache

    The browser cache not only stores passwords, cookies, and the download history, but also data from websites you’ve visited. If you have already visited the page, it is possible for the cache to contain information that doesn’t match the current version of the website and so blocks the connection setup, making the ERR_CONNECTION_RESET message appear. Since it’s possible to clear the browser cache in a few steps, you can easily check whether this is causing the problem. To do this, go into the settings menu in Chrome (the three-line symbol), then select “More tools” and the “Clear browsing data.”

     

    Chrome automatically displays the different categories of cached information. To fix the “ERR_CONNECTION_RESET“ error, you should set a check mark next to all available categories. Also make sure that the “All time” option is selected next to “Time range.” This is the only way to clear the entire cache when you click on “CLEAR DATA” at the end.
