Before you begin looking for problems with your internet or firewall, keep in mind that the Error mostly happens on Mondays and Wednesdays. If the problem happens on Monday (about midday CET/6 AM EST) or Wednesday (between midday and 3 PM CET, or 6-9 AM EST), the cause is related to Runescape Server Maintenance
How To Fix: Runescape Firewall Error 7,28
The solution to the 7,28 Runescape Error is easy. Patiently wait until the updates are finished, which might take from 10 minutes to 2-3 hours for major updates. It’s important to note that Monday’s Runescape update (for Runescape 3) often takes much shorter time than Wednesday’s Oldschool Runescape Server Maintenance.
