The Nintendo Switch is designed to be used anywhere and quickly transforms from a home console to a portable system. This gives you more time to play your favorite games the way you want.
You may encounter error 2110-2003 when trying to connect the Switch to your wireless network. This can happen if your Internet settings weren’t set up correctly or if your Nintendo Switch console can’t find the wireless router. Sometimes it is possible to simply bring the Switch to the router.
These instructions will help you troubleshoot this error.
Check the distance to your wireless router
If you’re having trouble connecting, the first thing you can do is try getting closer to the WiFi router. You can also move the router closer to your location and make sure there is no interference between them. Make sure that the router is not behind a TV, audio system, or fishbowl. Also, make sure there are no metal objects near or on the router and that it is away from other wireless devices.
Turn off or disconnect devices such as laptops, tablets, wireless headphones, Wi-Fi printers, speakers, cordless phones, etc. etc., And try reconnecting the switch to the Wi-Fi network. Devices such as microwave ovens can cause interference and interfere with your Nintendo Switch’s proper connection. The problem is most likely the distance between the router and the console, and the suggestions above will definitely solve the problem. Try turning off each device and make sure the Switch is connected to the Internet. This is where you can find out if the device is interfering with the network.
Turn off the console and turn it back on
According to several affected users, this particular error code can also appear due to an error caused by a temporary file that your console is saving. If this is the case, you may be able to perform a soft reset to resolve this issue.
This process successfully clears all temporary data as well as power capacitors to ensure that no temporary data can persist between runs and cause error code 2110-2003.
This operation has been confirmed as successful by several affected users who have already solved the same problem.
Here’s a quick guide on how to reset your Nintendo Switch:
- On the console, press and hold the circular power button (at the top of the Switch console).
- Press and hold the button until the system shuts down (this will happen after 10-15 seconds).
- After turning the console off, wait a full minute to make sure the power capacitors are empty, then press the power button again (normally) to turn the console back on.
- If you have done everything correctly, you should see a longer animation of the Switch logo on the screen. When you see this, take it as confirmation that the process completed successfully.
- After the next console startup is complete, try connecting to your home network again and see if it succeeds this time.
Reboot your Nintendo Switch
A simple reboot can remove the 2110-2003 error code and allow you to connect to the Internet. To restart your Nintendo Switch, press and hold the power button for about 3 seconds. You should now see a menu of power settings. Select “Power Off” and wait for the device to turn off. Now press the power button to turn it back on. Check if you are connected to the internet.
Switch to Google DNS
If none of the following possible fixes worked for you, you should seriously consider a domain name (DNS) address mismatch. There are many user reports confirming that switching to the DNS range provided by Google was the only thing that helped them fix the 2110-2003 error code.
- In the initial Nintendo Switch console window, select the “System Settings” option (the gear icon).
- If you are in the “System Preferences” menu, select the “Internet” tab on the left menu. Then go to the “Right” menu and select “Internet Settings.
- Your console will then create a list of all available Wi-Fi connections. When the list is completely full, select your Wi-Fi connection from the list (under Saved Networks).
- After selecting the appropriate network settings, select “Change Settings” and scroll down to the DNS settings menu. Then set the menu to “Manual” so you can change the DNS.
- Now hold down the B under Primary DNS to delete the current value. Then add 18.104.22.168.8 and press A to save the configuration.
- Under Secondary DNS, press and hold the B key to delete the existing secondary DNS. Then delete the existing value as before, add 22.214.171.124, and press A to save the changes.
- Try connecting again and see if the connection is successful this time.
