How to Fix “No provider was found” on PancakeSwap

PancakeSwap is a crypto trading platform that allows people to trade ERC-20 tokens with each other.

I’ve been using the platform for months now with no problems. But recently all of my deposits were not reflecting on PancakeSwap or in my Ethereum wallet. I looked everywhere online and couldn’t find any solutions that worked for me, so I tried to debug the problem myself.

After a bit of tinkering around, I’ve found that the issue was my Ethereum wallet provider, MyEtherWallet.

First let us know what does “No provider was found” means on PancakeSwap;

It means that you are trying to connect to the network but are not able to find a node or peer to connect to. This generally happens when there is something wrong with your configuration or when the network is overloaded.

Now that we know what the error means, let us see how to fix it:

How to Fix “No provider was found” on PancakeSwap

1. Make sure that you are using the right Ethereum wallet provider

The first thing you need to do is make sure that you are using the right Ethereum wallet provider. PancakeSwap only supports MyEtherWallet, Metamask, and Parity as of now. If you are not using one of these providers, then you will need to switch to them before using PancakeSwap.

2. Clear your browser cache and cookies

Sometimes changing your web browser or internet settings can cause you to lose access to MyEtherWallet, Metamask, or Parity. To fix this issue, all you need to do is clear the cookies and cache from these browsers. Here’s how you can do it:

– For Google Chrome: Click on the three dots in the top right corner and go to settings. Then under advanced, click clear browsing data, and check all items except passwords and autofill information.

– For Edge: Click on More (…) and select “Settings and more”. Now click on “View advanced settings” and under the Clear browsing data section, select the following: Cookies, cache, and history.

– For Firefox: Click on the three lines in the top left corner and select Preferences. Then go to Privacy & Security and under History, select “Clear all current history”.

3. Check your network connection

The next thing you need to do is check your network connection. Make sure that you are connected to the internet and that your firewall and antivirus software are not blocking the website.

4. Verify your connection to MyEtherWallet, Metamask, or Parity

At times it may seem as if you have connectivity issues with your wallet, but in reality, it’s simply a problem connecting the wallet to PancakeSwap. This usually happens when the infrastructure is overloaded and you need to try again later.

So if you have tried all of the solutions listed above and are still getting the “No provider was found” error, then try again later when the network is less congested.
