What the hell is this Firewall Error after Champ Select?! Why can't I connect to the game?!

Hey everybody, We have noticed many players affected by a bug that doesn't allow players to connect to games. Our Network Operations Center (NOC) has posted about this on our [Service Status Page](http://status.leagueoflegends.com/#na) and will update it when more information becomes available. In the meantime, we have a potential workaround that may allow you to bypass this error. Running an IP Release and Renew should help get you back into game faster! Doing this will reset IP address which will allow you to reconnect quicker. >Players using Windows can perform these steps: - Exit the game completely - Press the Windows Key or Navigate to the Windows Icon at the bottom left-hand corner. - Type cmd - Right-click the Command prompt shortcut and select "Run as Administrator" from the drop down menu. You should now see a black window with white letters. - Type ipconfig /release in the command prompt. Then press [Enter] ***NOTE***: *This will disconnect you from the Internet.* - Type ipconfig /renew in the command prompt. Then press [Enter] - Type ipconfig /flushdns in the command prompt. Then press [Enter] - Type exit in the command prompt. Then Press [Enter] - Relaunch League of Legends and attempt to reconnect. >Players that use Macs can perform these steps: - Exit the game completely. - Open your Apple Menu at the top left-hand corner - Click the System Preferences - Then Select Network. - Choose the type of connection that you are using ***NOTE***: *If you are connected through an Ethernet cable, choose Ethernet. If you are connected through wireless, choose Wi-Fi.* - Click the Advanced option - Click the 'Renew DHCP Lease' - Relaunch League of Legends and attempt to reconnect.
