Method #1: Restart Router

When you have a problem connecting to the Warframe servers, you need to perform some basic methods that will help you to rule out any problem in your network.

Follow this simple process to troubleshoot your network:

  1. Power off your computer and unplug the ethernet cable (if you have one)
  2. Also, power off your router and unplug it from the outlet
  3. Now, you need to wait 30 seconds until your plug again the router and the ethernet cable
  4. Then, turn on the router and also your computer (or console)
  5. Wait until your computers boots and the router lights stop blinking and then launch Warframe and test the network connection

If, after following this process, you still see the message about the network not responding, you can continue with the next methods.

Method #2: Use an Ethernet Connection

You already should now that you can get the best quality from your internet connection using ethernet instead of wi-fi.

Wi-fi network also works great, and I have used to play overwatch over this kind of connection, but on Warframe, some network controls doesn’t let you connect if you have a poor connection through Wi-fi.


If you can try a wired connection, use it to verify if your wi-fi connection is the problem. Now, when you will able to connect successfully, you can perform the steps on this guide to improve your internet connection over wi-fi.

Method #3: Allow Warframe through Firewall

If you are sure that your internet connection isn’t the problem in this situation, you may need to verify that Warframe is allowed in the Windows Firewall.

One of the easiest fixes to network connection problems is to add the program affected to the allowed list on the Firewall. You can add Warframe following these steps:

  4. To the left you will have some options, there click on Allow an app or feature through Windows Defender Firewall
  5. A new window will open, and there you need to scroll down to the bottom because Warframe has the W letter in the beginning until your the game.

  6. Now click on the button Change settings, then check the boxes Private and Public in the Warframe line
  7. Click on OK to save the changes and close all the windows
  8. Now, launch Warframe and verify if the network issues have been solved

  5. Click on OK to save the changes and close all the other windows
  6. Hopefully, this time when you launch Warframe, it will not show you any network error

Method #5: Update Network Drivers

To update your network drivers, you can follow this easy process:
