First, we need to know what these error codes mean. Both of these errors are directing towards the things which we can see as two sides of a single coin. Meaning error 277 and error 279 are saying that the connection to the game and connection to the server has timed out or not connecting at all. It is extremely annoying to see such errors and they make a bad impression on users too. Roblox developers community is also not much enthusiastic about solving this problem. So the user must take this matter into his own hands. This is where we come into play, to help you, to guide you. This time also we have come up with some possible solutions which you can apply to make wrong right. There can be multiple causes behind the malfunctioning of Roblox network connection error or game server not connected error.

Roblox server down:

            The error is might be caused by the Roblox itself due to a maintenance issue. If the game server on Roblox is under maintenance then there is nothing you can do about it. You will find yourself waiting for the server to go online once again. This is a common task with which many of you will relate if you have been a regular online player.

Corrupted windows system file:

            “The solution is temporary, corrupted windows system file is permanent.” It might be a reason for getting these errors. Getting the system files corrupt doesn’t only affect the game or particular software but the overall system. So it is good practice to keep checking for these damaged files.

Make chrome as default browser:

            Roblox supports many browsers. But chrome is something different, something unique with its own luxury and features. If you are using the other web browsers for Roblox then switch to chrome and also make it the default web browser for everything. Also, turn off the extensions if you have any on, this will help eliminate the problem. Also, keep your Google Chrome updated. It is a good practice to keep Google Chrome as your default and only browser unless you are into some internet security and hacking stuff.

Check and change compatibility mode:

            The compatibility issue might be causing this error. It can be tricky if this is the reason because the error is saying something else and we are looking for something else, totally different. Roblox is designed and developed for windows 10 because it is a relatively new technology. So there may be a compatibility issue lying beneath, it’s just we don’t see it. So how to check compatibility and adjust it accordingly, we will see this step by step.

Different connection:

Due to faulty net or very slow speed, the game is figuring out a way to connect itself to the server and failing repeatedly. This is your task to find if this is the case.

PC antivirus:

In this situation also, try and apply this technique which you must be used for centuries (hahaha). Check if it has fixed the problem. If not then you might wanna reinstall the Roblox.
