If you see an error message that says, "Connecting to the Grammarly server…", or a "Not connected" notification pop-up in your Word or Outlook, this typically points to a problem with your network configuration.
To work reliably, Grammarly needs a stable Internet connection. Either message can indicate a problem with your local network, your ISP, or your computer settings.
