ERR_CONNECTION_RESET error is same like ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED error which neither allows you to access the site nor it will allow you to login to your account on that site. If it’s your own site then won’t be able to access the dashboard of the site. But don’t worry because we have got the list of easy and working solutions. You heard it correct that we have got the LIST of solutions because this error can’t be resolved just by applying one single solution, different solutions will work for different users. You need to apply solutions one by one until this error gets resolved on your chrome. Now let’s jump directly on the solutions.

Setup MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) Value

Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) is the largest data transfer unit that can be transferred using ethernet or WiFi signals. It is set to a default value by the system. But if it is set to the extremely high value or low value then it can create problems and may block you from browsing the internet. ERR_CONNECTION_RESET error may also appear due to MTU’s inappropriate value hence you must try setting up MTU appropriate value.

Follow settings to Setup MTU Value:

To setup MTU value, you must know the name of your wifi or broadband network assigned by your PC.

To note down the name of your network:

  • Open Control Panel (Press Windows Button and Search for Control Panel)
  • Set view by Large or Small Icons
  • Click on Network and Sharing Center
  • Click on Change Adapter Settings in Right Sidebar Window
  • Note down the name network to which you are connected (It may be Wifi Network / Or Broadband Network)

In this image as you can see that it is Ethernet Network and its name is simply Ethernet.

 

 

In this image, it is WiFi and it name is Wi-Fi.

 

Once you note down the name and type of the network let’s proceed further.

Now you need to open Command Prompt using Admin permissions.

  • Click on Start Button and type cmd
  • Right Click on Command Prompt and click on Run As Administration

Now if you are connected to Broadband that is Ethernet then enter this command:

netsh interface ipv4 set subinterface “Network Name” mtu=1472 store=persistent

*Replace Network Name with your Ethernet Name, do not erase quotes ” ”

If you are connected to WiFi then enter this command:

netsh interface ipv4 set subinterface “WiFi Name” mtu=1472 store=persistent

*Replace WiFi Name with your Wifi Name, do not rase quotes ” ”

Once MTU value is updated to the appropriate value, check whether ERR_CONNECTION_RESET error is appearing in chrome or not. If it appears then check it again after rebooting your PC. Else you can go for the next solution.
