The best thing about using Omegle is how easy it is to use, just user friendly and very clear to understand. But still, that doesn't mean the website can't have problems. Have you been having issues with Omegle error connecting to server? Let's see how to fix it.

Clearly, there might be several reasons on why that might be happening. For example, it might be a slow VPN or something like a Cloudflare connection timed out error.

Let's take a better look to understand how to address the Omegle connecting to server error.

How to fix Omegle error connecting to server

First thing, make sure your internet is working correctly. If all other websites seem to work fine and you have already restarted your router and PC, then it should rule out all problems on that side. So, the problem might be with Omegle' servers.

Best option is to take a quick look at Omegle socials to see if they posted anything about problems or, even better, take a look at Is it down now. If everything seems to be working on their side, let's see what else we can do.

Clear your browser cache

Perhaps the problem is on your software side, so let's clean up the browser cache. This is how to do it:

  • Depending on your browser, you should find the Cache settings in the options or settings menu;
  • You can choose to clear cache for the entire browser;
  • Delete cookies and cache for Omegle in particular.

Try again, also perhaps with another browser, if you see that it's not working.

Omegle has banned the IP

Perhaps you have been banned by the service, for some reason. In that case, using a VPN might definitely be a good way to get around the problem. Alternatively, you can clearly use another device or connection to get around the ban, but that might be a bit too difficult.

Reset network configuration

This way you refresh your network and see if the problem has been solved. This is how to do it:

  • Open the Command Prompt (either by using Windows + S and typing command prompt or searching it in the menu);
  • Enter it as Administrator;
  • Type "netsh winsock reset" and press Enter;
  • Type "netsh int ip reset" and press Enter;
  • Close the prompt and reboot.

This should hopefully fix the problem for good.
