This error code is mainly for features that require an internet connection. So, if you don’t have an internet connection at all, you might come across it. But it doesn’t necessarily mean that you don’t have an internet connection. In some cases, it may be Nintendo’s servers, or a variety of other issues. But is it fixable though?
How To Fix Error Code 2811-7429 On Nintendo Switch
Nintendo’s official site on this issue is not very helpful if we’re honest. We’ve concluded that this can also happen because of lots of reasons, which are unlisted on the support page.
For example, the error code 2811-7429 can be encountered because of:
- Server issues;
- No internet connection;
- Unstable internet connection;
- Poorly setup connection;
- A fluke.
Server Issues – Is There A Fix?
The first thing that you should do is check whether Nintendo’s servers are actually up. You can do this through Nintendo’s server checker page. Just select a region and see if it’s actually a server issue you’re dealing with.
If it is, there’s nothing that you can do, except wait for the issue to be fixed on Nintendo’s end.
No Internet, Unstable Connection OR Poorly Set-Up Connection
Go to your network settings on the Switch. Firstly, ensure that you have an internet connection at all. If you do, go back and try to do the last thing you did before encountering the error.
If you’re still having trouble with it, it’s time to reset the connection. Simply, forget the network and then set it up from scratch. After doing so, see whether the error still persists.
This error doesn’t necessarily mean that there’s an issue with your connection, sometimes, it might just be a fluke. I recommend quitting out of the application and trying again or, if you want to be safer, completely restart the whole device.
If it was a fluke, then a simple restart will fix the error – 2811-7429.
