    It's in reference to how you connect to the internet. Sounds like the answer is probably no.

    Have you ever been able to get it to work? I've seen this error plenty of times but I'm always able to get it to download after messing around with the network settings a bit. I've always attributed it to being in China and something funky with the Great Firewall.

    I done a little research on proxy and vpn and im not connected in that way.
    i've tried connecting directly to the router and tried different wifi area's (Mc Donalds ;)) and i still can't get it to work

    Fix Chrome

    Chrome error is not something unique happened to you. Sometimes there is a dreadful total crash of the browser and sometime it sends ddifferent errors, upon restarting nothing happens.
    Such sorts of errors can be linked to the file association issues. The file association references are the important components of the registry database in Windows. A registry repair scan, which has the power to fix file association errors, will help you to find the solution for Google chrome error.

    I fixed this error after reading this article google chrome error Hope you might get help from this article too.
