Minecraft is a sandbox game that was developed by the company Mojang. Although this game was made for Windows at first, it was later on released for other platforms as well. There is no specific goal that you have to achieve in this game and you can move freely around the massive world. You can also choose between third-person and first-person modes.
Aside from this, you can create your own home and buildings as well as have pets. The best thing about this game is that you can do all of this with your friends by joining a server together. This is an extremely fun game to play. Although, some Minecraft players get slow internet speed which can be really annoying. If you are also getting this problem then here are a few ways you can fix this.
Minecraft Slow Internet
- Server Ping
One of the most common reasons for getting this error is that the server that you are connected to has a bad ping. Some people don’t look at the ping while trying to connect to a server. You should know that if you are getting a high ping then that means that server is really far from the location you are in.
This will cause your game to run slowly as well as get lag throughout the playthrough. This is why it is recommended that you choose to play on a server that has low ping. This way you can enjoy playing the game at high speed without having to worry about anything. However, you should know that you can not move your saved data between servers.
This means that all your progress will be locked to the specific server. Additionally, another thing to note is that all Minecraft accounts are locked to the region that you bought it from. This means that you can only use your account in the region that you purchased it on and it will not work on any other region.
- Change DNS
Another fix to get high speeds is that you change your DNS server on your device manually. Usually, most people will be running their game on the default DNS which is automatically decided by your computer. Although, by entering a server manually, you can get better speeds. This can be a little tricky to do and you should not change or mess with any other setting while you are doing this if you have no prior knowledge about similar stuff.
Start by opening up the control panel on your computer. After this proceed to find the network settings and then open them. Here, you will see the network that you are currently connected to. Open up its properties by right-clicking on it and selecting the option. Here select the option to set up a manual DNS server for your connection. The Google DNS server is one of the fastest servers around. The alternate address for this is ‘8. 8. 4. 4.’ while the preferred address is ‘8. 8. 8. 8.’.
After setting up this you should apply and save all the changes. After this open up your game again and you will notice that it is working better than before.
- Free Up Bandwidth
There might be someone in your house that may also be using the same internet connection as you. Alternatively, you might have connected other devices to the same internet network on which you are playing this game. The other devices connected to the network might be updating or streaming applications which can cause your internet speed to fall down quite a bit. Whatever the case might be, you can easily fix this by disconnecting these devices from the connection.
Another thing that you can do is to set up a priority on your router for the device that you play Minecraft on. This will make sure that your device receives more bandwidth compare to all the other devices connected to it. Resulting in you getting better speeds. The priority can be set on most routers by opening up their settings. In case your router does not have this option, you can easily purchase a router that supports this feature online or from a local store nearby.
