Reset the Router to the Factory Defaults
FFXIV Endwalker could display the error 3001 when your router’s firmware is corrupted and it’s not giving the game access to the necessary resources to the game’s functioning. Resetting the router back to default settings could fix any FFXIV issue 3001. Before you try it, make sure you keep a record of the router’s settings required for setting up the router following the factory reset of it. The specific instructions for resetting the router could differ, however the general rules are as in:
The first step is to find first, locate the first, locate the reset button on your router. It may be in the middle or at the back of the device.
Once the reset button has been found, press and hold the reset button for 30 minutes (you could use a sharp object such as paperclips).
- Then press on the reset key, and then wait until the router is fully powered up.
- Then reconfigure the router according to the ISP’s instructions . Then we hope that your FFXIV game will function perfectly.
If not, make sure that connecting the console or system straight to Internet by taking out the router will fix the issue. If it does the router’s compatibility with the game may be causing the issue. In this case, you could get a new router modem from your ISP. If the problem recurs on the new router and you haven’t changed the mac address of your router (some models have this function) and then acquiring an additional IP solves the problem. If the issue continues to persist it is possible to rest (close your game, and close all processes that are related to it) until at minimum 24-hours (as servers cache is reset after the 24 hour period) and then check to resolve the issue. If the problem persists, you could call Square Enix to perform an analysis of the route to see where the problem is.
