Troubleshooting connection issues

[ Edited ]

Things to try if you're having connection issues with Spotify.

 

  • If everything was working fine not too long ago, please first check http://www.spotify.com/help/service-status/ and http://twitter.com/SpotifyStatus to see if there are any ongoing issues.
  • Check that your router allows Spotify in- and outbound and your firewall software allows Spotify in- and outbound.
    The following IP ranges should be open on port 4070: 78.31.8.0/21, 193.182.8.0/21.
    That number 21 is the prefix length. Please check your router’s manual on how to enter those IP ranges correctly.
  • Check that Windows (if applicable) firewall allows Spotify in- and outbound
  • If you have any anti-virus, anti-hack or any other anti-software installed, try to temporarily disable it, just long enough to test your Spotify issue
  • (Names that come to mind are Norton, McAfee, AVG, etc.)
  • (On Windows) make sure you start Spotify as admin
  • Check your router and make sure UPnP is enabled. If it already is, turn it off, then on again
  • Turn off your router, wait 10 minutes, then turn it back on again

Can't fix it? Here are some other options.

Of course, if you were directed here from any of those threads, then proceed and follow the steps where you left off in that thread.

Re: Generic connection issues, add your tips please.

Per - can you post a list of specific IP addresses and ports that need to be open in routers/firewalls. They've been posted in various threads over the weeks but I don't want to copy and paste in case things have changed or they weren't complete.

One thing I would add:
- If it was working a while ago and now isn't then check https://www.spotify.com/uk/help/service-status/ and https://twitter.com/SpotifyStatus. Then, even if they say all is fine wait a while and see if it comes back up.
