Just remember to keep the browser open while playing, and turn off the VPN whenever you end a Tower of Fantasy session. A similar solution can easily be replicated with Free VPN services on mobile device, such as ProtonVPN.
Solution 3: Use Google Public DNS settings on Your Device (PC)
Another way to fix this is by changing your internet network's DNS server to Google's Public DNS settings. Not only does it troubleshoot for internet connection errors, it's also a great quality of life improvement (in most cases) for your games and internet surfing on PC. Google Public DNS improves connection speed, internet security, and is also able to bypass internet restrictions in some cases. To begin, we first must navigate to the Control Panel.
Once your Control Panel is opened, click on "View network status and tasks" to bring up the Network and Sharing Center window. Next, click on "Change adapter settings".
From the "Network Connection" window, find the WiFi or Ethernet you're currently using, right click, and select "Properties".
After bringing up the "Wi-Fi Properties" window, find Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/iPv6) and double click on it. Once there, select the 2nd option for the DNS server and key in the following phrases: "2001:4860:4860::8888" and "2001:4860:4860::8844".
Hit OK to confirm, and voila! Now you should be able to play Tower of Fantasy without any connection bugs relating to Errors ID 4/7.
If no suggested process has fixed the connection error, you may try first try to restart / reboot your computer to make sure the DNS option has been implemented. Another option is to make sure you're playing on a smooth server to prevent being kicked out mid-game. Picking a smooth ToF server is easy - so we really recommend it because it also avoids the Error Code 2618 in Tower Of Fantasy.
