How To Fix ESO Error 307 In 2023

To permanently fix error 307, remove your ESO AddOns, get an Open or Moderate NAT type, optimize your internet connection, and verify ESO's server status.

Recently, many players have encountered ESO error 307. It kicks you out of the servers of Elder Scrolls Online. Error 307 is most commonly seen when players try to join a server. However, it can also appear in the middle of your session and kick you out. This can lead to many players losing their progress in ESO, making this error highly frustrating and disheartening.

The ESO pop-up error message says, “Error 307. Booted from server.”

Key Takeaways
  • ESO error 307 means that some external factor caused a miscommunication between your network and the ESO servers.
  • Error 307 usually occurs when you try to log into the ESO servers. It can also show up while you are in the middle of your session and kick you out.
  • Causes of ESO Error 307 include server issues, a strict NAT type, slow internet connection, excessive server traffic, and inactivity.

Follow these solutions to fix ESO error 307:

  1. Try to remove all of your AddOns, as they can cause many problems besides error 307.
  2. Check your NAT type. If it’s Strict (Type 3), you need to change it to Moderate (Type 2) or Open (Type 1).
  3. Ensure you have at least 30 MBPS download and upload speed. Optimize your connection by switching to an ethernet cable if on WiFi, pausing downloads and streaming, and limiting other devices’ bandwidth.
  4. Check ESO’s server status. If the servers are down from the backend, wait for the developers to fix the problem.

What Is ESO Error 307 & What Causes It?

ESO Error 307 means that something interfered with the communication between your network and the server. While this is simple enough to understand, the cause of the miscommunication can be difficult to pinpoint. Multiple culprits exist. Here is a brief list of these potential suspects:

  • The Elder Scrolls Online servers might be down.
  • Your network’s NAT type being strict can also kick you from ESO’s servers.
  • A slow internet connection can cause random disconnects while in the middle of a session.
  • The servers might be experiencing an excessive amount of user traffic.
  • You will encounter ESO error 307 if you are inactive for too long.

Because of these multiple reasons, you must keep trying all of the methods mentioned below until you can fix ESO error 307.

Remove Your ESO Add-ons

It is a well-known fact in the ESO community that AddOns can cause several issues with the game. This also includes our error 307. Most of the time, just one single addon is causing this issue. However, you can’t exactly pinpoint that single addon without the process of elimination. This is why it is recommended to get rid of all of your AddOns for a quick resolution to ESO error 307.

However, players who would like to keep most of their AddOns can go through the process of elimination and see which one is causing the problem. You can do this by individually deleting one addon at a time and then launching Elder Scrolls Online to see if error 307 is fixed.

This is how you can delete your AddOns:

  1. Find the Elder Scrolls Online game folder from your PC. It will likely be located in the “My Documents” folder.

  1. Here, Double-click the Live folder. If you are in the Europe mega server, the folder will be called Liveeu.
  2. Now, enter the AddOns folder and delete your desired AddOn. It is recommended that you remove everything from this folder.
  3. Additionally, delete the AddOnSettings.txt file from your Live folder.

Check Your Network’s NAT Type

Your NAT type is one of the biggest driving forces that ensures you can connect to other IP addresses and servers. The small data packets can communicate with other network endpoints through this NAT. If there is any restriction on your NAT type, the data packets will also be blocked from communication. This will lead to ESO error 307 and many other issues when playing games online.  

NAT exists in three different types. These are NAT Type 1 (Open)NAT Type 2 (Moderate), and NAT Type 3 (Strict).

The most optimal NAT type is 1 (open), as it allows for a highly smooth online experience. A moderate NAT will also adequately do its job and have little restrictions. However, a type 3 (strict) NAT will block nearly all of the data packets from traveling to their intended destination, giving rise to problems such as error 307. This is the NAT type you must avoid at all costs.

Let’s first verify whether your NAT type is strict. Here’s how you can do it on the PlayStation 4 & 5:

  1. Access the PlayStation’s system settings.
  2. In settings, enter the Network section.
  3. Here, click Test Internet Connection.
  4. The console will run an overall test of your internet connection, which includes its exact NAT type.

This is how you check NAT type on a PC:

  1. Click the Windows icon on your keyboard to access the start menu.
  2. Here, click the gear icon to enter Windows system settings.
  3. Now, enter the gaming section.
  4. Find Xbox Networking on the left side of your screen and click it.
  5. Windows will now test your network connection and also display your NAT type.

Follow these steps to check your NAT type on the Xbox One and Series X/S

  1. Go to your Xbox console’s system settings and then enter the general settings section.
  2. Now, navigate to the Network Settings.
  3. You will notice the Test NAT Type option on the left side of the screen. Click it.
  4. You will now see your internet’s NAT type on your Xbox console.

If you notice that your NAT type is Strict (Type 3), you need to change this to either Moderate or Open. Players with a non-strict NAT type should proceed directly to the next step since NAT is not the root cause of your ESO error 307.

While there are many ways you can use to change your NAT type, the easiest one is by enabling UPnP in your router’s configuration. Here’s how you can change your NAT type from Strict to Moderate or Open:

  1. Look at the back of your Router/Modem. You will notice the device’s IP address, username, and password
  2. Note this information down and launch a web browser.
  3. Type your router’s IP address in the search bar and press enter. This will take you to your router’s login portal.
  4. Once in, enter your username and password to log in. 
  5. Now, you have to find a setting called UPnP
  6. The majority of popular routers will typically have the UPnP settings in their advanced section.
  7. After finding UPnP, simply enable it and reboot your router. Now, you can recheck your NAT type to verify the change.

Optimize Your Internet Connection

Your internet connection experiencing packet loss or being too slow can also lead to errors like ESO error 307. You need at least 30 MBPS of download and upload speed to avoid slowdowns and packet loss. Even if a single data packet fails to reach its destination, you will be kicked from the ESO servers. The 30 MBPS value can change depending on the number of devices actively using the internet on your home network. However, for an average of 3-4 devices, 30 MBPS is the recommended bandwidth.

You can go to to test your internet connection’s speed. If you are getting sufficient bandwidth, there might be something wrong with your fiber cable. In this case, contact your internet service provider.

You can still try some things out to improve your overall internet connection. Give these a shot:

  • If you are on WiFi, switch to an ethernet cable.
  • Restart your router, as it will reset the network traffic and assign a new IP address to dynamic IP users.
  • Players on a VPN, check if there is a contrast in your bandwidth and latency with the VPN turned off. If there is a significant difference, replace the VPN.
  • Pause any downloads or video streaming services whenever you get to play online.
  • Access your router’s configuration and limit the other device’s bandwidth to 10% of your total bandwidth. 

Check ESO’s Server Status

The reason behind ESO error 307 might not always be on your end. Occasionally, the official mega server can go down for various reasons, including admin maintenance and excessive user traffic. You can check the server status of ESO from this website. Another way to verify this is to see if other players besides you are also experiencing server issues simultaneously.

The only solution here is patience. You have to wait until the developers of Elder Scrolls Online resolve these server issues. Do note that the server will automatically boot you if you are inactive for too long. This is another cause of ESO error 307. You can quickly eliminate this by logging back into the server and moving around.
