Fix #2: Restart Your Internet Connection

Another solution is to restart your internet connection. If you are connected to a hotspot network, you can disconnect the hotspot and reconnect back. In the case of a router, you can shut down the router for a hard reset. This hack should fix the problem if the issue is with your router and internet connection.

For Windows Defender, follow the steps below:

  1. Type “Windows Security” into the Start menu to find the app.
  2. Using the search results, select the Windows Security app, go to Virus & threat protection, and select Manage settings under virus & threat protection.
  3. Turn off Real-time protection. Until you turn it off, scheduled scans will continue.

Fix #6: Check if Your Account is Set to Classic

If any of the above does not fix this issue and you still keep getting disconnected from the server, you may need to check if your account is set to classic. If not, you adjust the settings to make it classic.
