My Question or Issue

Getting error code:4 ; no internet connection detected when online. 

-Tried changing the DNS 

- Spotify is not on any of my firewall lists. It is on the unrestricted  list.

- Spotify is on my exception list for my anti virus

-I have tried to change the proxy settings. But I am not using a proxy nor have i ever.

- Lastly, i have tried to reinstall spotify.

I haven't had this problem since i first got spotify in 2012 or so. It only started happening a couple days ago. I tried changing the DNS server and that worked only temporarily (for a day or two). Now it is back to error code:4. I tried to change the DNS server again, but this time it didn't work. Reset computer multiple times. Spotify works fine on my phone.

Hi there @baseballfan4877,

thanks for reaching out to the community !


Let's try a few more things :

- Please disable your firewall/anti-virus/win defender and try running the app again

- Unplug your modem/router for a full minute and try again


After these two, please try downloading, installing and using the Spotify Microsoft version to see if it behaves differently. 


Keep me posted 🙂



Resetting the router fixed it for now.
Thank you.
i'll be back here if it happens again
