The fix was not messing with my router settings. The fix was not buying a new $250 router. And the fix was not force stopping the google services in the setting areas. It all comes down to one silly little thing that all websites use to keep their security tight. Checking your devices date and time against the servers date and time. if there is a mismatch, there is a problem. And if there is a problem, you don’t get into the club!
I spent hours troubleshooting this issue only to find what I needed to do was one simple step. Here it is:
- Be sure that your date and time are correct….
Yep, thats what did it for me. 2 devices having issues for weeks. Adding and removing accounts. Changing router and network settings. Buying a new router even. And all that was wrong was our date and time somehow got changed to 3 years ago….I think there was an issue with the devices syncing that caused it to go haywire. Both units went astray at the same time so that ruled out the kids tinkering with the settings. besides, all they do is play minecraft and soome strange farm game.
But again, the fix for me to the “Can’t establish a reliable data connection to the server” error was just setting the proper date and time. As soon as I did that, all sorts of notifications popped up and we were back to making crappy looking villages and feeding our digital chickens!
