How to fix Genshin Impact error code 4201

The best thing to do to start with is to simply exit the game and boot it up again. This fixes far more issues than you'd expect, and it's the easiest fix by far.

Of course, it doesn't always work, and with this error code, your next step is to restart your router. Turn it off, leave it for thirty seconds, then turn it back on and wait for everything to boot back up properly. Now that that's done, try the game again.

If this doesn't work, then your next step, assuming you know the Genshin Impact servers are working, then you need to uninstall and then redownload the game. It's time-consuming, but it's a good fix.
