1. Make sure that connection to the internet is available (check internet connection):
If the source of internet browsers like internet explorer or chrome, etc. are showing the Err_Connection_Reset on screen the 1st task for you is to make sure that the connection of internet is available or not if your answer is no then check the cable of the internet to be sure that cable kept in the socket is not disturbed if it is disturbed then fix it clearly.
For example, the cable is not disturbed then check the wi-fi connection as it is connected or not if not then sign in again go through that again and make sure that connection is connected. If both the things are connected then restart the system that will resolve the problem of err_connection_reset. If it fails to fix then follow the next.
2. Issue of VPN (a virtual private network):
One of the common reason that leads to raising the err_connection_reset is the change in IP (internet protocol) as the VPN changes the settings of IP address may be these settings on the internet that connected to VPN will not allow the internet in major places so Be sure that the connection of internet is available after accessing the VPN.
The maximum decreases the use of VPN so that will never allow the usage of internet as it changes the IP address. As per my experience, it’s better not to use the VPN that will reset the Err_Connection_Reset. If the problem is not solved follow the next.
3. Correct LAN(local area connection) settings:
As the connection of LAN detects the network and follows the script as follows or reset the server of proxy as follows.
Windows Chrome Users:
For Chrome users Get into the command URL of the address bar of chrome and do as follows.
- Enter “chrome://settings/”
- Tap on the “Advanced” option.
- Followed by the “open Proxy settings” found in the “system menu”.
- There available options “internet properties” click “LAN settings” in it.

The data of browsed can be deleted as the option available on the top right side of the home page then you need to select the unwanted browsed history, download history, cookies, and other sites data cached files, etc. Tap on the option clear data then that will resolve the problem err_connection_reset.

To shut down the antivirus follow as below
- Click on the start menu.

7. Make sure that “Firewall settings” not block the internet:-
The act of a firewall is to operate the in and outgoing network traffic and it will also reduce or blocks the data for the safety of our system. As the firewall is founded to safeguard the system from the untrusted networks so that will be one of the problems for err_connection_reset.
