The purpose of this article is to discuss the D2R Cannot Connect to Server error message for Diablo II: Resurrected. From time to time, Battle.net’s servers are down or your internet connection is lost and cannot connect to their servers. This can happen for a multitude of reasons, including maintenance work being done on the server, or your own internet failing and losing connection. Even when others are access Battle.net you still may not be able to connect.
You Cannot Connect to D2R’s Servers But Others Can
Battle.net may enter their servers in maintenance modes or have issues with downtime. In these events, Battle.net will slowly onboard users while returning the servers to normal operating capacity. They will either let PC gamers or people playing on Xbox or Playstation consoles on first, then queue up others. The only thing a person can really do in these scenarios is wait until you are in the queue to be brought on the network. This can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours.
Another issue might be your own internet connection. This is especially true if you are recovering from your internet being down. You may need to check your DNS settings and resolve any issues experienced with that. If you’re connected to the internet but can’t open websites, it’s a good indication that there is a DNS issue that needs to be resolved.
