Abandoned Connection Error in Minecraft

Abandoned connection error shows up when your game abruptly loses connection to its servers and crashes the game, meaning you might have lost unsaved progress. There are several fixes that you can attempt to fix the abandoned connection error. They are:

Check Your Ethernet and DNS Connection

In order to do this, you must navigate to network and internet settings on your PC and follow these steps

  1. Go to network and sharing center and click on Ethernet

  2. Navigate to Properties

  3. Open Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4)

  4. Upon seeing the checklist, make sure you have “Obtain an IP address automatically” and “Obtain DNS server address automatically” ticked off.

  5. Click on “OK” and exit.

Server and Speed Test

To make sure you are not facing internet issues with your ISP you can first attempt to check your connection’s speed and stability through a speed-test website. If you find discrepancies, you might want to contact your ISP and sort it out. Furthermore, you can check if the problem is with the game servers by using the Downdetector website. This will let you know if the servers are down for maintenance or if it has been closed.

Re-Launching and Re-Installing the Game

Although this might seem obvious, launching the game again would re-authenticate your account and establish a new connection to the server. If the issue still persists, you can either attempt to check the game files through the Minecraft Client or do a fresh install of Minecraft, which would iron out any issue with corrupted game files, which might also cause the connection error.

Submit a Ticket to Minecraft Help

If the above methods yield you no resolution, you can submit a ticket to Minecraft Help. They have a team of experts who will guide you through your Abandoned Connection Error in Minecraft.
