The Ghost Recon: Wildlands beta is in full swing, and unfortunately for many gamers, there seems to be numerous connection issues associated with the Ghost Recon: Wildlands beta, most notably the ribera-1000b error. Fortunately, there’s a simple solution that involves port forwarding via a gamer’s router.

Gamers have shared recommended fixes on Reddit and YouTube, showing gamers how to port forward their routers and help make the adjustment simple, even for those who may not be technically inclined.

On its end, Ubisoft has already taken the Ghost Recon: Wildlands beta servers offline twice in an effort to fix the issue. That said, this is a beta, and one of the most important aspects of a beta is to test the online connection. While the process is certainly frustrating, the goal is to eliminate issues during the beta so they don’t crop up once the final game is released.

The release of For Honor a little over a week ago is a good example of how things can go wrong at launch. After two successful beta tests, many players have still run into connectivity issues with the Ubisoft fighting game. This has been a tough hurdle for a game that was so well received at launch.

Naturally, Ubisoft wants to avoid a similar situation with Ghost Recon: Wildlands, so it’s likely the developer is pushing the system to see how much it can withstand. With that in mind, gamers can likely expect additional downtime throughout the weekend, though fortunately each maintenance period has been relatively short, lasting only 15 minutes to an hour.

For those times the servers do go down, gamers can check out the live action film for Ghost Recon: Wildlands over on Amazon. The film is only about 30 minutes and is a great way to get to know the Santa Blanca cartel.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands is due out March 7, 2017 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
