Use VPN –
For some, using a VPN was what helped them fix this issue, so you can give this a try too. Additionally, if you happen to be using Cloudflare WARP, disable it and then see if it helps resolve this issue. You can also try contacting your ISP and requesting that they change the NAT type of your connection.
Change your DNS –
Changing your DNS could possibly help. It’s generally recommended to use Google’s public DNS. The following is what you should change your DNS to:
