If you are using a wireless connection then use a cable connection as it will be more stable. It will also offer better performance, helping reduce connection problems and lag.

If you have a third-party security program installed on your Windows computer then try disabling this temporarily in case it’s causing the issue. Just keep in mind you won’t be protected while you do this.

If it turns out to be your security you will need to add Saints Row to the exceptions list.
