We will share the solutions to each cause one by one. Any of the solutions can work. So, keep trying every solution until you get your issue resolved.
Turn off VPN
Some of the players play games keeping the VPN activated. In such a situation, most of the games do not allow playing, like Roblox. They don’t let it because the VPN slows down the server as it keeps changing the IP address. Another main reason is that VPN slows the internet speed. So, we recommend disabling the VPN before playing games.
Enable Roblox through Firewall
In some cases, the Firewall blocks Roblox. Every time the Firewall blocks any game, you will see the same error where the game is not receiving the data.
The same case may happen in this case. There is no specific reason why the Firewall blocks any game. Still, experts believe there might be an outgoing connection issue.
So, enable Roblox through the Firewall by opening Windows Settings and search for Firewall and Network Protection.
Open the “Allow an app through firewall” option and add Roblox. Unmark all the options and check if it works.

Add Roblox’s Port to Firewall
Error Code 260 went viral the past few days and took the attention of highly skilled programmers. They came up with many solutions, and this was common of them. In this solution, you have to add Roblox’s port to the Firewall to unblock the game. Follow all the previous steps to reach the Firewall and Network Protection Settings and then search for “Windows Defender Firewall with Advanced Security.” This option will lead you to the process of adding the Roblox’s port to the Firewall to run the game smoothly without any issue.
Check if you are Banned
If all the previous methods are not working, then there might be a chance that you are banned from Roblox. To make sure if you are blocked, check different servers because you can be excluded from a specific server and not all. Another method to verify if you are banned is to play Roblox on another system and on different versions. Try entering your ID in the Player URL to check if you exist or not. Use all these techniques to check if you are blocked. If not, try the upcoming method.
Internet Problem and Login Issue
Code Error 260 directly or indirectly may relate to internet connection problems. Ensure you have a working internet that is obvious but check the internet settings that may block the game. The manual procedure is to restart the router and, before that, reset it. After resetting and restarting the router restores the internet settings to default because sometimes changes in settings can lead to this error.
Moreover, login problems can also be one of the reasons. What best you can do is log out from the Roblox account and Microsoft account and then log in again. If there is still a login issue, try logging in on a different system may be android or any other browser.
Final Trick: Reinstall Roblox
Reinstalling the game is the most traditional method that is ever used in computer games. Uninstall the Roblox from the settings. You can uninstall from the start bar that can lead you to the Control Panel. Or you can search the App from the search box by typing Roblox. After uninstalling, install the game again, and it will work.
