    Lately, I noticed there are a lot of threads reagarding the same issue in this subforum, connection issues. These are a few steps you should try before contacting a Moderator or Administrator about it.

    • Restart your Minecraft.
      The most simple solution to solve it.

    • Change your Minecraft Version
      If you don't know how to change your Minecraft Version go through this tutorial:
    1. Open your launcher and click on 'Launch Options':

    2. Click on 'Add new':

    3. This will pop-up this screen, allowing you to change the Minecraft version:

    4. Return to the 'News' tab, click on the arrow next to the 'PLAY' button and select the profile containing the changed Minecraft version:
    • Restart your computer completely.
    • If you're not able to join the server you can reset your location via stuck.hypixel.net.
      If you lagged out in a game or your client crashed and you're stuck in that game or lobby and nothing is working, you can join stuck.hypixel.net in order to reset this.

      Another weird, but working method, is to join via build.hypixel.net and use /main to join the server.

    • Flush your Domain Name System. A bit more technical.
      For more information on what DNS exactly is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_Name_System

      These steps you need to follow to flush it:
      1. Go to Start
      2. Run
      3. CMD
      4. Type ipconfig /flushdns

    • Watch this video which covers connection problems:

      OS X Yosemite (10.10.x)
      sudo discoveryutil mdnsflushcache
      Older versions (10.9.x or earlier)
      sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder
      General Minecraft versions directory (may vary depending on where you install Minecraft)
      ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft/versions

      (Credits: @Peso255 and @Gerbor12 )
    • NOTE: If you have read the Guide and nothing seems to work for you, please run a WinMTR and if the numbers are different than 0 or 100% you should contact an Administrator. There is a Guide by Slikey on how to do this, CLICK HERE to open it.
    [ERROR: Internal exception: java.net.SocketException: Connection reset]
    • Unplug and reconnect your router.
      This error is usually displayed right when you log in or after 10 to 15 seconds. It's usually caused by a high ping with the Hypixel Server. Unplugging your router for 10 seconds and then reconnecting should fix this issue. If you keep experiencing a high ping after restarting your router you should contact you Internet Provider.

    • Make sure your Java is up-to-date !
      If you are running an older version of Java, you have a higher chance to encounter this issue, therefore please try to download the newest version of Java at https://java.com/en/download/.
    [ERROR: Internal Exception: io.netty.handler.timeout.ReadTimeOutException]
    • This is an error which is automatically send when you've a connection issue.
      This is an error which can be caused by a lot of reasons and it's the default error which Minecraft sends if you've a connection issue, therefore there isn't a clear way to solve it.

      Try to remove any mods you might have installed and lower your in-game settings, as one of the reasons this error appears is caused by chuncks which are being loaded. Furthermore, try all general tips, please.
    [ERROR: java.net.ConnectException: Connection timed out: no further information]
    • I am currently investigating the cause of this error.
    [ERROR: Internal Exception: java.io.IOException: an existing connection was forcibly closed by remote host]
    • Patience.
      This error is given when you can't ping to the server, the TeamSpeak or the stuck.hypixel.net IP. Sometimes, a little patience is all you need to fix this error. If you still can't connect to Hypixel after an hour, try the next step.

    • Check what the problem of your connection is.
      If you can't ping to Hypixel and you are 100% sure it's not at your end, you should check out this thread http://hypixel.net/threads/guide-solving-connection-related-issues-updated.113708/.
    If you are having any issues when connecting to the server and nothing in this Guide worked, please feel free to respond below and I will personally try to help you ! I am still doing more research about each possible error, so if you encounter something which is not in this Guide, please let me know as well!

    As this was a frequently occuring problem I visited following resources to write this Guide:

    My connection has changed recently for some reason. Basically every 2 or 3 minutes I get this massive lag spike for about 20 seconds. This is the kind of lag where everybody around you freezes, blocks don't drop after you mine them and after the lag spike is over, it either rubberbands me back to where I was when the lag started or I get this glitch that's hard to explain. I'm working on getting a video because it's hard to put into words :/

    This started happening around the same time when all the big updates came out. Before that everything was a perfect.
    I've tried everything in the guide but nothing worked and the admins haven't responded to my pm.

    There is not much you can do on the server-side, but on your side of the connection you can improve your ping by a better Internet.

    Really nice and detailed, reinstalling minecraft is something you might want to add, that has worked for me sometimes.

  13. For the past 4 or so days I have been getting java.net.ConnectException: Connection timed out: no further information when I try to connect to any minecraft server. I have looked up "solutions" to this which include resetting router, computer, downloading lower version of java, downloading minecraft launcher again, adding java to firewall, and temporarily disabling firewall. None of these have worked so far and I was wondering if you found out some more information about the cause of the error.

    No unfortunately there is no clear solution on Google and in the Community Help section there hasn't been a clear fix or this error - try to contact an administrator please :)
  15. You should add as possible other IP to join, especially when playing UHC you sometimes lag out and can't ping hypixel.net anymore, same for ts.hypixel.net, is the only IP working in this case, also it has a bit less lag (for me, don't know for others)
