I re-installed origin, I cleaned whatever that everyone recommended, and literally did everything to connect to the gallery but it never works. I've been trying to do that for a week now but nothing ever worked. And yes, I ran origin as the admin, I'm online in origin and I removed all my mods before testing. I'm so lost and helpless right now.
I have done everything that was in THE FIRST POST. Still, it isn't working. What I don't get is that my Desktop works but My LAPTOP doesn't. Not everyone uses desktops now and days. It must be something on the LAPTOP when it comes to SIMS 4. I didn't have issues until I downloaded Snow Escape.
I have straight up turned off my firewall, and the X's were gone. However, instead of showing the X's, no thumbnails even showed up, just a loading screen. Five seconds in to the loading screen, the dreaded "no internet connection" popped up again, despite a fully functional internet that is allowing me to post this right now. I am deeply annoyed an don't understand how it's happening to so many people without the issue being resolved.
Here are some other things to try:
My Sims 4 wont connect to the internet or let me access the gallery. When i try it just says Sims 4 is offline and asks me to connect, but it wont connect. I have spent hours searching forums and have tried everything I have found but nothing seems to work. I have cleared my origin cash, then reset, nothing. I have repaired the game three times, nothing. I have checked my firewall is allowing both sims 4 and origin, and have even deactivated the firewall all together, still nothing. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the sims twice, nothing. I have tried running the game in administrator mode, nothing. Both the sims and origin are up to date and i am definitely in online mode on origin. It has been like this for over a month now and nothing seems to fix it. It is incredibly frustrating and with the amount of time I've spent trying to fix the issue I am honestly starting to feel like just giving up on the sims all together. It would be fantastic if there was anything else you could suggest that might help, I'm honestly at my wits end with it.
