Many people are too lazy to look for a fix on how to fix the connection error.
Riot are currently looking for a permanent fix; however this is the current temporary fix:

Windows Fix:

-> Open your "Network and Sharing Center"
-> Select "Change adapter settings"
-> Right click your adapter, and select "Properties"
-> Locate the field for "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)", and double-click it.
-> On the bottom, select "Use the following DNS server addresses, and input the following:
Preferred DNS server: 8.8.8.8
Alternate DNS server: 8.8.4.4
-> Click OK twice, and retry the game
If this does not fix your error, go to Internet Explorer, Internet options and reset to defaults, then change security level to Medium or lower.


I do NOT know how to do this on a Mac, so dont ask, however, if someone is to post a fix for how to do it on the Mac, I will happily Edit, copy and paste it in this post


EDIT: This apparently is EXACTLY THE SAME solution for Mac's too......(Cannot confirm as I dont own a Mac personally)


Here's the re-worded solution to how to fix the Mac:

Mac Fix:
-> Go to System Preferences.
-> Click on Network.
-> Select the first connection in your list and click Advanced.
-> Select the DNS tab and add 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 to the list of DNS servers.


IF ANY OF THESE SOLUTIONS WORKED FOR YOU, PLEASE COMMENT BELOW!
COMMENTING WILL BUMP THIS POST TO THE TOP OF THE FORUM, HELPING OTHERS TO FIND THIS SOLUTION AND TO PLAY THE GAME!

btw this doesnt work for me i stuck at the login screen i think the best thing we could do at the moment is to wait till rito fixed it and dont try to repair it otherwise some one destroys his connection settings and blames you for this
