Roblox Error Code 277 stems from network problems and corrupted files. Fixes include network driver updates, DNS flushing, and system file repairs

Roblox Error Code 277 is troubling players globally, disrupting their multiplayer gaming experiences. This connection error emerges when the game’s server disconnects during gameplay, prompting Roblox to stop and try reconnecting.

Causes vary from an unstable or weak Wi-Fi signal, corrupted Windows files, Windows Defender Firewall blocking the game, or missing game files. Outdated network drivers or a faulty DNS configuration on your computer might also trigger this error. To tackle this issue, various solutions can be explored in this guide to restore gameplay stability and connection reliability.

Before we plunge into the complexities, let’s have a go at these simple tweaks first:

Key Takeaways

Here are some solutions for the error code 277:

  1. Check Server Status
  2. Flush DNS Settings
  3. Repair Corrupted System Files

Check Server Status

Oftentimes, players encounter the error code 277  even when their network is stable. It is common for popular games like Roblox to experience server outages. In such cases, I suggest using the down detector to check for any reported outages for Roblox.

Please note that server outages may occur only in specific regions. Therefore, it is important to select your country while using the down detector website.

Flush Your DNS Settings

Flushing the DNS settings has proven to be useful for quite a lot of users. Sometimes, your temporary network files cause network communication problems between different game modules. What flushing your DNS settings essentially does is that it removes the stored cache and force-retrieves information from the DNS. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

  1. Click on the Windows Icon and type Command Prompt.
  2. Select Command Prompt from the search results.
  3. Type in the command “ipconfig/flushdns” and press Enter.

And that is the last step to finalize the process. After this step, relaunch the game to check if the problem is fixed. 

Repair Corrupted System Files

If you encounter the error while playing Roblox on your computer, it may be due to corrupt or damaged system configuration files. Just like we verify the installation files for games, this time around, you’ll have to do it for your PC files.

This can cause your computer to malfunction and result in poor performance. Fortunately, you can use your computer’s built-in utilities, such as System File Checker and Deployment Image Servicing and Management.

We recommend you restart your system after the scan is complete to apply the changes you have made. If this fix does not work either, then fret not. Continue reading. We have a couple more fixes that will fix the issue.

My Thoughts

Error Code 277 disrupts multiplayer gameplay as it crashes Roblox entirely. Its causes vary from network driver issues to servers being down. There are players in the community who are advising others against using VPNs as they’re a potential reason why this error is occurring.

As far as the error is concerned, it’s quite widespread as players are reporting it on Reddit, Microsoft, and Devforums. This issue isn’t just limited to one platform or region either so it’s not just you who’s experiencing it.

Despite several reports from players, there hasn’t been an official acknowledgment of the issue on either Roblox support forums or their official Twitter account.

As a last attempt at solving this error, you can try directly contacting Roblox support and explaining the issue to them. Hopefully, they’ll come up with a solution quickly.
