For Google Chrome users, there are very annoying bugs that not everyone knows how to fix. Today we has ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT or ERR CONNECTION TIMED OUT instructions for this situation.


What does connection timed out mean?

Connect timed out means that the connection exceeds the specified time. Chrome, Chrome, UCWeb default browser will “wait” for about 1 minute since the connection. If the server or the internet has problems and the web site does not return data to the browser, when the timeout expires, the browser will display this error to the user instead of letting the user wait for more.

When we encounter this error, we can not immediately determine whether the error is due to network or error by the website, but by following the steps as guide below you will succeed and access the normal network.

Error due to network

This is a rare occurrence, not a failure. Because our network has a problem, too slow to send and receive requests from the server side of the website. Error ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT due to a faulty network that will appear when we visit any website, including and Facebook.

How to fix network inaccessibility: Turn off the modem with the power button or directly pull the power cord. After about 30 seconds, open / reconnect the power cord as before. Wait 30 seconds for the modem to receive the network, maybe longer. After that time, visit Google or Facebook to check.

If you still can not access any of the websites, please contact the operator to get back to the testing house.

Error due to website

With this error, we can not do anything else … wait for the site to be restored.

One trick to check whether your website is not is to visit, check another site, enter the website address and press Enter. If you see the message under “is up” means that the website is working normally but you can not go to mean that error by you.


Normally, we should reload the page to fix the error.

At the top left, click the Reload.

If still not successful, here are some ways to fix it.

#1. Checking connection

Check that your device has wired or Wifi connection.

#2. Clear Cache

Click on Customize and Control icon on the top right corner of the browser. No Scroll down and click on “Show advanced settings”. Now under the ‘Privacy’ section click on “Clear Browsing Data’.

#3. Edit the Host file

The error is because the locked hosts file accesses a number of web pages. The hosts file contains the web links that you want to access. Our job is to find the hosts file and delete the URL that is done.

The location of the file is C:windowssystem32driversetc.

Simply, but you can not edit here, I have to copy and edit with notepad.

– You go to Start —> then right click on Notepad —> select Run as Asministrator.

Select YES.

– The notepad window will appear, choose FILE —> OPEN —> select ALL FILE.

– Click HOSTS —> HOSTS NOTPAD window appears.

– You go to LINK CHOOSE —> delete it.

#4. Flush DNS and Reset IP

Now type ipconfig /flushdns and hit enter.

Then, ipconfig /registerdns and hit enter.

Then, ipconfig /release and hit enter.

Then enter ipconfig /refresh and hit enter.

Finally, run Netsh winock reset this command. Hope. It will help you fix err_connection_timed_out.

#5. Disable Firewall

Check your firewall and internet security to ensure your browser is not blocked from accessing the internet. If you have any web page filtering software installed in your system, then uninstall them.
