I can't connect to my PC when using mobile data

If you can't connect to your PC while using a mobile data connection, there are a number of potential causes. 

 

  • If you have a firewall on your PC, internet or router, it may interrupt the connection. Please turn off your firewall.
  • If your Wi-Fi network has a double NAT or symmetric NAT connection, you may not be able to connect.
  • If there are many users on your mobile network or router you may be unable to connect due to high traffic.
  • If there is a weak signal on your mobile or Wi-Fi connection you may not be able to run the PlayGalaxy Link app.
  • Firewall issues, improper port forwarding, or your ISP (Internet Service Provider) blocking UDP (User Datagram Protocol) connections may cause errors.
Can I use an external controller?

Yes! Playing PC games on your mobile will be even better with a compatible controller. PlayGalaxy Link supports Bluetooth, controllers, mice and keyboards and you can also play with the customisable on-screen keyboard.
