    How to fix the Genshin Impact 403 Network Busy Error on PC

    One of the biggest titles from last year, is Genshin Impact, which came out last September on PC, PS4, PS5, and mobile devices. Its success has carried over to 2021, and there seems to be no indication of it winding down anytime soon. The latest 1.4 update was announced a few days, and it will bring a lot of new features, and characters. The game made around $800 million last year, and the studio has over 2400 employees as of 2021. Despite the constant stream of content though, Genshin Impact still has a lot of technical problems that users face. These are mostly tied to network issues, though, and it can be hard to pinpoint what exactly is causing it. If you are getting Genshin Impact 403 Network Busy error, here is how you can fix that.

    We have extensively covered Genshin Impact, and the various errors users can face in-game. These could be the “Game Verification” one of the more recent “Network Return” error. Most of these errors show up on PC anyway, as that is the platform with the highest level of customization.

    This is another common network error that is mostly related to issues with DNS. Multiple ISPs have also blocked access to Genshin Impact in North America, and that can be very annoying.

    Here, click on Network and Internet

    The Network and Internet section in Windows Settings

    • Next, right-click on the available Network, and select Properties

    Properties

    • Now, select Internet Protocol Version 4 or Internet Protocol Version 6 in the Networking tab, and click on Properties
    • After this, in the new window, check Use the following DNS server addresses, and enter the following values
    • For IPv4: 8.8.8.8 and/or 8.8.4.4.
    • For IPv6: 2001:4860:4860::8888 and/or 2001:4860:4860::8844
