So I'm usually playing Minecraft online on servers. Today I'm trying to log into a server to play with friends, but it keeps booting me about a minute after logging in with some strange error.
I was always able to log onto the server fine before because I started gathering supplies and started to build my new base away from the community base that's been set up. I'm trying to log back in now, and I'm unable to do so because of the annoying Java error.
I was hopping to fix this by updating Java so I went and updated to the latest version of Java tonight, and I still got the same error. I tried restarting my router a few times and that also did not solve my issue. Firewall doesn't appear to be the issue either as I've checked that too, even tried disabling.
However, if I use my phone as a hotspot it works just fine, but I'm really not trying to use my data to play a game on my PC. Another player on the server said that after the server got restarted, he was able to play fine, so it looks like an server issue.
Sadly the server owner is on vacation right now though, so I'm looking to see if there's another alternative to resolving this issue rather than him just having to restart the server, think changing my IP would fix the issue? How would I go about that? I have static IP.
Also I'm trying to play on public servers on the latest version of Minecraft, Java edition, and I have no mods installed, so totally clean, using Windows 10.
