How To Fix Overdrive Error Code 1060?

Fix 1: Check your internet connection

For Mobile Connection

You can also Restart your Mobile to give it a fresh start, it has worked for multiple users to refresh the internet connection. And check Overdrive once the device is started properly.

For Home Wifi Users

If you are using a wireless connection, then power cycle the Router to establish an Internet connection.

  • Turn Off your Router and unplug the power cable.
  • Wait for a minimum of 1 minute.
  • Now plug in back the power cable and turn on the Router.
  • Connect the device to wifi on which you are using Overdrive.
  • Open the overdrive and check if the error code has gone or not.

Fix 2: Double Check Public Wi-Fi Networks
