Causes Of Tavern AI No Connection Issue
Tavern AI can show “No Connection…” in the API Key section if you have slow internet, use an old and leaked API key and have an installation problem.
Furthermore, let’s discuss the reasons for Tavern AI showing No connection.
1. Slow Internet Connection
If you use an internet connection with slow bandwidth, you might run into this issue with Tavern AI.
The models and APIs used in the Tavern AI need internet access with a fast connection to interact with the characters.
2. Exposed API Key
If you share your API key with others or expose it in other browsers, platforms that provide the API key can rotate the API key.
Furthermore, to protect the security of your account, the API key’s platform will change your API key.
3. Installation Problem
If you try to install Tavern AI locally on your device using the code in GitHub, you might get issues during the installation.
And, those issues or vulnerabilities during installation can create no connection issue in Tavern AI.
4. Location Or The IP address
