The Problem Explained
One of the main causes of the 227 Roblox error is a poor internet connection, but other factors can trigger it, such as corrupt game files and a sudden ping increase.
The error message accompanying this problem is: “Lost connection to the game server, please reconnect (Error Code: 227)“, which doesn’t say much about the issue’s cause.
Upon reading the error message, most players would simply try to reconnect to the server, but that’s when the situation becomes frustrating, as reconnecting is not possible due to the same error over and over again.
Luckily, we’ve tested a few methods that users reported as working and put them all in the following sections below.
If you’re looking to fix the 227 Roblox error, this is what you need to do.
Fix 1: Ensure Your Connection Is Performing Optimally
As reported by many users, one of the main causes of the 227 Roblox error is a poor internet connection.
Sometimes, you don’t need to completely lose connection from the internet to get kicked out of a Roblox server. It’s enough to have a poor enough connection for the server to detect it and issue the 227 error on your screen.
The best way to ensure this doesn’t happen is by avoiding downloads while playing, or at least limiting the download speeds, as well as ensuring nobody else is using your network and most of your bandwidth while you’re in-game.
To check whether your connection is the issue or not, we recommend Speedtest by Ookla. With just a click of a button, the website will give you all metrics about your connection’s performance, so you can easily see if it’s not performing up to the optimal expectations and therefore is the culprit for the 227 Roblox error.
If you notice poor connection performance, we recommend restarting your router, and if it continues, contact your Internet Service Provider for further assistance.
You can restart your router by switching off its power button, waiting five minutes, and then restoring power to it once again.
It’s also recommended to clear your DNS Resolver Cache, which is a method we use for many Roblox connection-related errors, and you can do that by following the steps below:
- Press Windows + S on your keyboard at the same time, and then type in Command Prompt in the search bar that just opened. Right-click the first result, and choose Run as Administrator, as shown in the image below.
- In the Command Prompt window on your screen right now, type in ipconfig flushdns and press Enter on your keyboard to execute the command.
- You will receive a returning message stating that the DNS Resolver cache is flushed successfully, as shown in the image below.
Now you can exit the Command Prompt window and launch Roblox. Start any game and try joining the server you previously had issues with. The 227 error should now be fixed.
Fix 2: Clear The Roblox Cache & Temp Files
If the above method didn’t help you solve the problem, there are other things you can do, such as clearing your Roblox cache and temp files, which is a method that has a high success rate when the 227 error is in question.
Corrupt cache and temp files can cause various issues with the game, and one of them is getting disconnected from servers while playing.
To fix that, here’s what you need to do:
- Press Windows + S on your keyboard at the same time. This will open the Windows search box. Within it, type in %AppData% and press Enter on your keyboard.
- Now the hidden AppData folder is opened on your screen. Within it, you need to access the Local folder and find the one dedicated to Roblox.
- Delete the Roblox folder by right-clicking it with your mouse and choosing Delete.
If you want to be sure there are only original Roblox files installed on your computer, we recommend reinstalling the entire game too.
You can do this by going into the Apps & Features section in Windows, where you can find Roblox, click on it, and then choose Uninstall.

Deleting the Cache & Temp files and then reinstalling Roblox is completely safe and won’t impact your account in any way. This is just a way to ensure that no corrupt or non-allowed third-party files are present within your game’s main directory.
This should help you solve the problem with ease.
Fix 3: Re-Log Into Your Roblox Account
Another potential cause for this problem can be a double log-in session, which means the server prioritizes the authentication credentials from one out of two or multiple other sessions.
To simplify, if you’re logged in from multiple accounts at the same time, the 227 error can arise, and the best way to prevent that from happening is to log out of all devices and ensure you’re only signed in from the computer you’re using at the moment.
You can do this by navigating into the Roblox account settings panel and then clicking on the Sign Out button under the Secure Sign Out category/section.
That’s all you need to know about the 227 Roblox error, which could happen because of a few reasons, the most common one being a poor internet connection.
Unless you got the 227 code due to an issue with the Roblox servers, the methods listed in this guide should help you fix it easily.
