  1. Find the Command Prompt by typing cmd into the searching box. Then right-click on it and choose Run as administrator.
  2. In the opened window, you should paste these commands one-by-one by clicking Enter after each.
  3. netsh winsock reset
    netsh int ip reset

    ipconfig /release
    ipconfig /flushdns
    ipconfig /renew

    We hope this method will finally eliminate the problem.

5. Change address in DNS settings

Misconfigured communication between servers can also result from incorrect DNS settings. These configurations can sometimes change accidentally after certain changes. They may also be set to find the server automatically but ultimately fail to locate the correct one. Whatever the cause of the issue, you can try setting alternative DNS values as shown below:

  1. Press Windows key + R and copy-paste ncpa.cpl. Press Enter to open.
  2. Right-click on your connection name.
  3. Click on Properties.
  4. Double click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4).

  7. wifi valid configuration

    As an alternative, you may also change your DNS address to 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1 is the former two on the screenshot above do not resolve the issue.

    6. Disable Proxy in Local Area Network (LAN) Settings

    If you have enabled a Proxy server connection in Windows LAN Settings, then this can be a reason for facing “Bad Request” error code 400 when launching Roblox. You can check it and disable the proxy setting in case it is enabled (especially if you remember doing so on purpose). We also advise you to turn off any third-party VPN software to make sure it does not affect your connection in any way at the time of checking. VPN software may also lead to similar connection issues.

    1. Open search box next to Start menu and type Control Panel. Open it up.
    2. Make sure View by is set to either Small Icons or Big Icons in the top right corner.
    3. Select Internet Options and navigate to Connections & LAN settings.
    4. Make sure there is only Automatically detect settings enabled. Unpick the other 2 boxes if they are selected, and click OK in the end.
    5. Now you should have LAN settings set up correctly. Go to the browser and try to check the result.

    7. Restore Windows Defender Firewall Settings to Default

    If none of the previous methods showed success in eliminating the issue, then our last suggestion is to roll the firewall settings of Windows Defender back to their defaults. Custom firewall changes could prevent proper server communication. Thus, resetting firewall back to its default configuration may fix the problem. Follow these steps:

    1. Type Windows Defender Firewall in search loop and press Enter to open it up. Alternatively, you can also press Windows key + R and copy-paste firewall.cpl.
    2. Once opened, click on Restore defaults on the left pane.
    3. Then click on Restore defaults and click Yes to confirm.
    4. After doing so, go to Advanced settings on the left pane.
    5. In the opened window, find and click on Restore Default Policy on the right pane. Confirm by clicking Yes.
    6. Once the restoration has finished, click OK.
