Solution 1. Test Internet connection
First, try streaming using other devices that could run Netflix. If you have not encountered any Netflix error on the other devices your internet connection is fine. Please skip this solution. If you did, please see below.
Netflix M7031-1101 can be caused by an intermittent and slow internet connection, you can confirm it by checking speedtest.net. The site is a stress test for internet speed. Using it as a reference you may know if you are having an internet connection problem, especially when the result is very poor. If it is, try calling your Internet service provider (ISP). If your internet speed is good, something might be wrong with your home network. You may want to turn off the device and the modem router for at least 3 minutes to refresh the connection.
If this is your first time using Netflix on your home network and you are unable to connect, network policies or a firewall may be blocking your device from connecting to Netflix server. The most common home network policy is the parental control which could be disabled by accessing the software (when using PC and MAC), the modem router or calling the ISP to disable it from your account.
If you’re using internet data connection, you may want to look for a strong signal. If it did not work go to your phone setting look for Reset Network Setting, then try resetting you Networking setting and then try Netflix again.
