Spotify error 112

This error is so bloody annoying, I’ve had it for 2 weeks on my laptop now. It tells you there’s no internet connection even though there is, so basically you can’t use it. I use an older version of Spotify though (because the new one works dreadfully on my old laptop).

Has anyone ever got this error and overcome it? There’s surprisingly no decent advice anywhere on the internet about this, I’ve tried everything, nothing works. Maybe the old version of Spotify doesn’t work anymore, or maybe I should get a new laptop…

used to get it a lot at my mum’s house where the internet connection was a bit poor. i’d be connected and able to (slowly) load other websites but Spotify would regularly disconnect like this and would takes ages to connect again. what’s your internet connection like?

otherwise it’s probably just the old version no longer working i’d imagine

Happens on my work laptop. Really annoying
