Wuthering Waves Gateway Connection Timed Out Explained

Experiencing a “Gateway Connection Timed Out” error in Wuthering Waves can be a frustrating hindrance, disrupting you from even starting up the game. Fortunately, there are several steps you can take to try to resolve this issue and get back to exploring Wuthering Waves. Keep in mind some or even all of these fixes may not work for you, as multiple issues could be causing the error.

First thing to try, restart the game client. Often, simply closing the game completely and reopening it can resolve temporary connection issues. This basic step can clear minor glitches and refresh the connection attempt.

If restarting the game doesn’t work, consider changing your Wi-Fi connection. You can try switching from a 2.4 GHz network to a 5 GHz network or vice versa. Alternatively, if you have the option, use your mobile phone as a hotspot to see if a different network resolves the issue.

If you’re playing on mobile you can attempt to switch between Wi-Fi and 5G. Sometimes, network congestion or specific settings on your primary Wi-Fi can cause connection problems. Lastly, sometimes, the simplest solution is to wait and try again later.

Server maintenance or high-traffic periods can lead to temporary connection issues. If the problem persists despite trying the above methods, give it some time and attempt to reconnect after a while. These steps should help you troubleshoot the issue and get back to enjoying the game. If the problem continues, consider reaching out to the game’s support team for further assistance.
