How to fix MultiVersus lag & connection lost errors on PC
Below we have listed the different methods you can do that should hopefully get you back to playing the game again on your Windows 10 or Windows 11 PC, without it disconnecting or giving you connection problems. You will need to try each method until one resolves the issue you are having.
Fix 1: Check MultiVersus servers
If there is an issue with the MultiVersus servers then you are not going to be able to connect to the game and receive connection errors. It’s as simple as that! You can check the server status of MultiVersus servers and any updates on their Twitter page.
Fix 2: Internet provider
Check that there are currently no known issues with your internet provider within your local area. If there are then this could cause connection issues within the game and stop you from being able to connect and play online.
Fix 3: Check the internet connection
Make sure your computer is connected to the internet. You can either do this by opening up a web browser and visiting a website or hovering other the network icon in the system tray.
Fix 4: Security software
If you have a third-party security program installed in Windows this could be blocking MultiVersus causing the connection error you are getting. So temporarily disable your security program just in case. But just keep in mind you will not be protected from security threats while it’s disabled.
Fix 5: Ethernet cable
If you are using a wireless connection and you are able to use an ethernet cable then do this. As it will offer a faster and more stable connection which can help reduce MultiVersus lag and connection problems.
Fix 6: Update the network driver
Make sure you are using the latest driver for your network card. You will need to go to the manufacturer’s website for your network card to get this or alternatively you could check Windows Device Manager to see if it can detect a new driver, but it won’t always be the latest driver:
- Right-click on the Windows start menu and go to Device Manager
- Expand Network adapters
- Right-click on your network adapter and then click on Update driver
Fix 7: Background programs
Make sure you don’t have anything open in the background that could be using bandwidth. For example, listening to music, streaming gameplay, or downloading and updating games on Steam.
Fix 8: Update Windows
If you are not using the latest version of Windows then this can cause issues, so check to see if there are any new updates available and if there are any, go ahead and install them.
- Right-click the start menu > Settings > Update and security
- Click on Check for updates
- Right-click the start menu and go to Settings
- Go to Windows Update and then Check for updates
Fix 9: Restart the router
There could be an issue with your router so giving it a restart can sometimes work all kinds of magic. Just make sure no one else is currently using the internet when you do this.
Fix 10: Flush IP
Within Windows, you can flush your DNS using Command Prompt and this can help resolve many network issues, especially connection problems in MultiVersus:
- Search in your Windows start menu for “CMD” and open Command Prompt as an administrator
- Type in the following and press enter: ipconfig /flushdns
Fix 11: Reinstall the game
If none of the above methods have helped fix the network connectivity issues that you have been having with MultiVersus then you might just need to unfortunately reinstall the game or check the MultiVersus bug report page and see if the issue you have been having has been reported.
