Warzone Not Working on PS4 or Xbox: Disconnected due to Transmission Error

The Xbox One and the Play Station 4 are two of the best and most popular gaming consoles around the globe. The Xbox One was introduced in 2013 by Microsoft Corporation. While the Play Station 4 was launched in 2014 by Sony Corporation. Both of them face fierce competition from each other face to face. However, it would not be a mistake to say they both are equally significant in terms of functionality and usability. As both are from different manufacturers, many games are exclusive to one of them. But most importantly, they both have a large fanbase and excellent after-sales support. They also feature great games in the store, of course keeping the exclusive ones besides.

Both the consoles are perfect. They naturally don’t experience or let the users encounter any hiccups during their long service run. Even our own Play Station 4, which we bought in 2015, is working like new. However, there are certain times when they really trouble the users. One of that trouble has been reported by one of our users from both the console. They are facing the issue while playing Call of Duty: Warzone. As we all know that it is a multiplayer game. So it requires some extra care and troubleshooting these types of transmission errors. Now we will discuss the issue briefly and then start with our fixes that will help you overcome the issues with multiplayer games.

Disconnected due to Transmission Error

What is the Issue?

The issue here we have with us is both for the Xbox One users and Play Station 4 users. They are unable to play multiplayer games and especially Call of Duty: Warzone. As soon as we heard warzone, we understood that this error is not due to any glitch or bug in the system. It is a simple transmission error that is stopping the game from interacting with the Console servers. This type of error is called Network Address Translation errors. Or in other terms, simple Transmission error is enough.

Transmission errors are caused due to multiple factors some are listed below:

  1. Internet connectivity not available.
  2. Network Address Translation unavailable.
  3. Internet Protocol is private rather than public.
  4. The router is unable to configure with the standards.
  5. You may be using a gateway that is misunderstood as a router sometimes.
  6. IPv6 is disabled, and IPv4 is in function.

These are the reasons for which transmission errors occur. Now we will discuss the fixes to resolve these transmission errors in both the consoles Xbox One and Play Station 4. Both the repairs will be described under different sections, so make sure to jump to the section of your console because both are quite different in terms of troubleshooting. So let’s get started with the fixes.


How to Fix Transmission Errors in Xbox One?

We would like to tell you that the transmission error in Xbox one is caused due to NAT errors. NAT stands for Network Address Translation. Now, this NAT decides whether you are eligible to play multiplayer games like warzone or not. First of all, you need to go to this location: System>Settings>Genreal>Network Settings and check under two tabs, the first one being NAT Type and the next Test Multiplayer Connection. After this, you will be able to see any of the three: OPEN NAT, MODERATE NAT, and STRICT NAT. Among these three OPEN NAT will allow you to host and play multiplayer games. If the other two are what you get, follow up with the fixes.

Fix 1: Turn on Teredo Tunneling in Router

Teredo tunneling is a router setting that keeps the interaction between the router and the Xbox One efficient with less to no delay. Turn the Teredo tunneling enables multiplayer gaming as well as results in OPEN NAT type. Follow the steps below to turn on Teredo tunneling.

  1. You need to log in to your router’s configuration page from a desktop or a laptop.
  2. Then go to router configuration settings.
  3. Turn on Teredo Tunnelling
  4. In most cases, Teredo Tunnelling is on by default, but sometimes it is turned off. So remember to turn it on.
  5. After turning it on, restart your router.

After all this, again open your Xbox One and go to this location: System>Settings>Genreal>Network Settings> NAT Type and check the NAT type, it must be open. Now you are free from transmission errors and can play multiplayer games as usual. However, if this did not help, follow our next fix.

Fix 2: Enable IPv6

IPv6 stands for Internet Protocol version 6, and it is the latest form of protocols. Most of the Xbox One multiplayer games won’t work without this. So you need to enable it right away in order to enjoy multiplayer gaming and overcome transmission errors. Follow the steps below to do this.

  1. You need to log in to your router’s configuration page from a desktop or a laptop.
  2. Then go to router configuration settings.
  3. Then enable IPv6 tunneling.
  4. After doing this, restart your router.

Now start your Xbox  One and go to this location: System>Settings>Genreal>Network Settings> NAT Type. Now you will see open. If not, there is a problem with your IP address. Follow our next fix to cure that issue.

Fix 3: Check your IP Address


The IP address is always the same as the same Network or place from where you are accessing it. So you need to verify it with another device in your area or home. Follow the steps below to do the same.

  1. First, sign in to the routers settings page.
  2. Then go to the WAN settings page.
  3. Here, verify or write the WAN or Internet Protocol Address.
  4. Now you have to log into a PC and search in Google: What is my IP?
  5. Now verify your written IP with the one showing on your computer.

Your IP off the computer should be the same as that you got in your router. If it is not the same, then probably your service provider is giving you a private IP address, and due to that, you are unable to play multiplayer games. Further, this also results in a STRICT NAT type. After getting a public IP address from your service provider, your issues will be resolved.
