How To Fix Nintendo Error Code 005-4305?

  • Then choose Internet Settings.
  • Then choose Connection Settings.
  • Under the connection settings screen, choose the connection file, and then choose Change Settings.
  • Then choose the right arrow, and then choose DNS.
  • On the following screen, where it says “Auto-Obtain DNS,” choose No, and then choose Detailed Setup.
  • Then choose Primary DNS, then you need to hold down the left arrow to delete the existing DNS (it defaults to zeros).

Fix 3: Power Cycle The Router

The next workaround you need to try is to power cycle your router and modem, and try again.

  • Then Wait for around 2 minutes.
  • Then plug in the power cable back into the wall outlet.
  • Once the router and modem restart, connect your console to the internet.
