How To Fix Diablo 4 Error Code 34202
First up, check if the Diablo 4 servers are currently down or operational.

If the servers are operational by all accounts, we suggest following the official steps to fix connection/disconnection issues as outlined by Blizzard.
- Close all other applications to resolve software conflicts and free up resources.
- Reset your network devices, which can resolve numerous problems
- If you're using a wireless connection, optimize your internet connection to rule out a connection issue.
- Update or temporarily uninstall any security programs, which may mistakenly identify the login module as a security threat.
- Release and renew your IP and flush your DNS to resolve any network conflicts.
- Disable any proxies that may interfere with the login module.
- Update your drivers and operating system to resolve any compatibility issues.
If you are still receiving the Diablo 4 Error Code 34202, blocking you from entering the game's Open Beta, then we suggest contacting Blizzard Customer Support.
