But before you begin please check the current status of the game’s server. You can do that by visiting their official server status page. Here’s the link https://status.roblox.com/ . If the current status says it is down, the issue is from their side, wait for a while as they will resolve it. If the current status is operational but you get the error code 266 then please follow the below fixes one after the other until your issue resolves.
