One of the issues that players of “Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands” experience in the game are connection problems. It’s a problem that almost every online multiplayer game has so this guide aims to help players fix that problem. There are a couple of reasons why a player is experiencing disconnection, lag and other connection issues in the game and below are suggestions how to fix it.

Allow Site Access

One of the most common solutions for a connection issue in “Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands” is just fixing the ports. This is because the computer may have blocked Uplay or the game by default so any exchange of data is not permitted according to Gamerant. To fix this, all the player needs to do is open the port and allow data exchange between the computer and the game’s site.

Reset the Hardware of the Network

If the first solution doesn’t work, the next step is to reset the network’s hardware. This includes the router, modem and can easily be done by shutting off both hardware and unplugging it on the electric socket. The player needs to wait for 60 seconds before they can turn it back on. This is required because it takes 1 whole minute before the network hardware completely shuts down.

Check Game and PC Settings

The next solution a player needs to look at is if there are conflicting settings in the PC and the game according to Primagames. For instance, players must check if Uplay is not set in offline mode as it will definitely create connection issues in the game. To do this, players just need to go to Uplay client and head to settings. Look for the Network and make sure the option Always Start Uplay in Offline Mode is not checked.

Check Hosts File

If all the mentioned solution still doesn’t work, the last resort is to reset the PC’s hosts file. For Windows 8 users, they can do this by going to c:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc and rename the file host in the older with hosts.old. Then the player just needs to create a new hosts file by right clicking on a space in the folder and create a new text document. Use hosts as the title of the file and click yes to confirm that the file will not be titled .txt. Open the new host file and copy the same content of the old host file.
