When you try to open a webpage in Chrome, does the “Err Connection Reset” notice appear? If so, Chrome is having trouble connecting to your website, which is why this is happening.
Fortunately, there are a few techniques you may use to perhaps resolve this Chrome problem.
Switch Off Your Router
Since this problem is a network issue, you should restart your router to see if that resolves it. Most routers may be restarted by hitting the power button, letting it turn off, and then pressing the power button once more to turn it back on.
If your router lacks a power button, use the power socket switch.
- Reset your router to its factory default settings and check if that resolves the problem if it doesn’t work and Chrome still exhibits this issue. Remember that when you reset your router, all of your settings and customized configurations are lost.
- Make sure your internet is functioning.
- Check to determine whether your internet connection is functioning if you see the error message “Site can’t be reached because the connection was reset.” It’s possible that your router functions flawlessly, but you aren’t able to access the internet.
- Opening a website in a separate browser on your computer will allow you to check the status of your internet connection. Everything is well with your connection if the website loads.
You may wish to contact your internet service provider (ISP) and ask for assistance if the site won’t load in the other browser.
Shut off the proxy server.
Although a proxy server shouldn’t typically interfere with your browsers, it’s a good idea to turn it off on your machine and see if it helps Chrome.
- Click the top result after typing “Control Panel” into the Start menu.
- From the Control Panel’s View by menu, choose Large Icons.
- Then select Internet Options.
- In the new window that appears, select the Connections tab.
- At the bottom, select the LAN settings button.
- Click OK after unchecking the box that reads “Use a proxy server for your LAN.”
Winsock Catalog reset
The records for the connections created on your computer are stored in the Winsock catalogue. It might be worthwhile to reset this catalog to check if your problem will be fixed.
There is only one command that has to be executed from the Command Prompt to reset the Winsock catalogue. How to accomplish it is as follows:
Search for “Command Prompt” under the Start menu. Run as administrator by clicking.
Answer “Yes” to the prompt.
In the Command Prompt window, enter the following command. The Winsock catalogue is reset by doing this.
the cache in your browser
You may have some corrupt cache files in Chrome, which might be the cause of Chrome’s incessant “Checking the connection” message. Although cache files are intended to speed up your browser sessions, they can make your browser lag.
Fortunately, Chrome makes it simple to delete your cache files, which can help with your connection issue.
- your computer’s Google Chrome window.
- More Tools > Clear Browsing Data may be found by selecting the three dots in the top-right corner.
- At the top, select the Basic tab.
- Check the box next to the Cached pictures and files.
- At the bottom, click Clear data.
Turn off antivirus software
A computer’s antivirus software is meant to assist you in preventing dangerous software from being installed. But occasionally it misidentifies good things as harmful. This may interfere with Chrome’s ability to connect to your websites.
Your best option in this situation is to momentarily disable the antivirus and check to see if Chrome functions. If it does, either add Chrome to your antivirus list of exceptions or acquire a different antivirus product.
