Well, a few hours ago, I was happily playing PUBG on my Android device. I played for almost an hour and then fell asleep for around 2-3 hours. Then I again launched PUBG on the same device with the same internet connection, but the next thing actually took me by surprise. After loading the same for more than a minute, a pop up appeared next to my screen and said:
Internet Error. Please check your network and try again.
Error Code: 154140712
Since I was using the same device and same WiFi that I was using 2 hours ago, I was actually shocked to see the Internet Error. I thought there might be something wrong at their end or there might be some fixable bug. However, this was not the case. Let me share my experience on how I fixed PUBG Internet Error on my device. This is very easy, trust me.
WHAT CAUSES PUBG INTERNET ERROR?
There are only two possible reasons that can cause PUBG Internet Error.
- Your Internet Connection is actually going slow.
- Incorrect DNS Configuration on your device.
For me, the actual cause was the first one. Though I was using the same WiFi, it was not working perfectly at that time. I tried to load normal web pages and they were actually loading slow and that made me sure that it is my Internet connectivity that is causing the PUBG Internet Error.
Now that we know the root cause of PUBG Internet Error, it is high time we get into the methods to fix PUBG Internet Error: Error Code 154140712.
