How to Fix the “Network Status Check Failed” Error in Elden Ring?

Fortunately, some workarounds exist that players may not have considered. However, there are a few things you can do if you’re experiencing launch weekend blues or overcrowding to try and alleviate the problem.

The “Network status check failed” error in Elden Ring can be fixed using the steps below.

Fix 1: Check the Server Status

To make sure it’s not an overall outage, check the server status on the official Elden Ring Twitter account.

You won’t be able to do anything about the problems if the servers are down; you’ll just have to wait it out.

It’s best to switch to Offline play, in this case, to avoid the game constantly trying to connect.

Fix 2: Reset Your Router

Resetting your router is a simple but effective way to fix any and all networking issues, especially the Network Status Check Failed” error. Simply turn it off for about 30 seconds and then on again. You’d be surprised what a reset connection can fix.

Fix 3: Switch Your DNS

If you prefer, you can use Google or OpenDNS, two very reliable DNS services that rarely, if ever, experience issues. This might help you solve your problem.

If none of the above methods work, then going offline for a while is the best option. It will give you a smooth experience, and while you won’t be able to play cooperatively, you won’t be invaded, so there will be some peace.

A blog post was tweeted out by the game’s official Twitter account while this article was being written. Many of the issues that players are experiencing are addressed in the post, as are the developers’ priorities.

Unfortunately, the problem discussed in this guide does not appear to be mentioned explicitly. Hopefully, the developers are aware of the issue!

It’s still early in the development of what will undoubtedly be a hugely popular game. Let’s hope FromSoftware has (or will soon have) the necessary infrastructure to handle the massive influx of players, especially this weekend!

Well, that’s all we have here about how you can fix Network Status Check Failed error in Elden Ring. We hope this guide helped you. A lot of players also reported low FPS and stuttering and crash on startup issues. We have addressed some working fixes there as well.
