How To Fix Error 4206 In Genshin Impact
We're going to take you through a few of the quick fixes for getting past Error 4206. It may be that it takes more than one of these actions to fix it completely, but many users report success when following these actions.
Restart Genshin Impact: First is the most simple action, and one you may have already tried. Shut the game down entirely, making sure no processes are left running in task manager if playing on PC. Once the game is not running in any way, restart the game and see if the error is fixed.
Change Your Region: It's common to not be playing on the right server, some players even prefer to not play on home servers for one reason or another, but always make sure you're playing on the best server available for your region as this is where the game connection will be most stable.
Try a VPN/Change Your VPN: If the problem persists, you can use a VPN to alter your connection and attempt to circumvent Error 4206 this way. If already using a VPN, change your connection location or refresh your connection to see if that provides a solution.
Check For Updates: More often than not, games keep themselves up to date and don't require manual updates. If an update has dropped recently, it may be that your game hasn't updated in this time and you may need to double check and apply the latest patch.
Pause/Stop Any Downloads: If you have any downloads on the go, or are using up bandwidth by streaming music or video at the same time as trying to access Genshin Impact, put these on pause or stop them entirely. This should free up your connection for Genshin to connect to servers a lot cleaner.
Finally, Consult The Community: Failing all of the above having an impact (no pun intended), check with community forums or social media to see if anyone has any unique solutions to the problem.
