So I have been trying to fix this issue for over a week now. Everytime I try to login to Minecraft it says cannot connect to minecraft.net. I have tried the following:
trying to login in on a different computer - worked
disabling firewall/antivirus temporarily - did not work
checking internet connection - connected at 4 bars almost always
trying to login through the technic launcher - did not work
having a friend try to login on my computer - did not work
checking the status of the minecraft.net login server - up and healthy
deleting bin folder - did not work
deleting .minecraft - did not work
updating java - did not work
So i don't know what else to try. I'm fairly certain it's a computer problem but can't figure out what it would be.
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: Also i should add that the client was unmodified and had been running perfectly fine until a bit over a week ago.
The reason i asked is because if the trace route failed at the start it would mean your pc is blocking the request, but as the request fails somewhere down the line it indicates the error is in the connections somewhere else (i think, i'm a little lacking on the networking at times)Maybe worth some extra bonus in networking class to bring this up with your tutor
Unfortunately I don't have that class all next week and would like to solve this before that. Any links or advice to get me on the right track? I sent a message to mojang a couple days ago and they have yet to respond.
Okay I tried doing everything on that post and still nothing. My firewall/antivirus is with eset and it has never caused a problem for as long as I've had it. I tried disabling it and stopping it in task manager anyway. The hosts file did not have anything in it except for the commented out stuff. I then tried to get a new launcher and that did not work.
Just started up my MC to see if i could try and login today and noticed a message in a red box. It says something about there service provider amazon being out and causing problems at certain endpoints. I believe this has something to do with my issue. If not then I will repost when the problem on mojang's side is fixed.
I'm having a problem like Ares. The difference is that I get no red box. I simply get the "Cannot connect to minecraft.net" message. I too have tried everything I've read in the forums. I've downloaded the client several times. I purchased the game. I've updated Java. I've updated my video drivers. I've tried connecting with my anti-virus turned off. I've gone through the host files. I really don't know what else to try. I can connect through the website, but it pauses and takes me to the menu while I'm trying to get wood or mine. Help!
Ok so I'm having the exact same issue but when I use multimc it works fine with the exception of the game being a little more laggy. What exactly could cause the issue that allows multimc to work but not mc itself? I'd much rather not have the extra program
