Not only in gaming but it can be used in any other field as well as company meetings, business, education, etc. One can send text, image, video, and audio messages to the connections via Discord.
Currently, a lot of users are complaining about the discord no route error. Users are not able to join the voice channels and this error is thrown. If you are facing this error then you have reached the right place as following the solutions that we provide will help you get the error fixed.
So, let us quickly check out the solutions so that you can follow the steps and implement them.
Method 1: Restart Modem/Router
The first and the easiest solution that you can try out is to restart your router/modem. By restarting, it simply means to turn off and on the switch of the router or simply unplugging the power cable and plugging it back. You don’t have to change any network settings in this.
Now, after restarting the router, restart your pc as well and then check if the issue is occurring or has got resolved. If it is occurring then no need to worry as we have many more solutions for this so go to the next method.
Method 2: Use VPN with UDP
If you are using a VPN that is not configured to use UDP protocol then there are chances of this error. The reason behind this is that the Discord app doesn’t run with VPNs not operating on UDP protocol.
You can check if the VPN is causing the issue by disabling it. If there is no error when VPN is disconnected then it is confirmed that VPN is causing the error and then you can consult with the VPN support team and ask them what can be done or you can change the VPN service to some other provider that is running on UDP.
Method 3: Whitelist Discord and Uninstall Antivirus/Firewall
Firewall or antivirus that you have installed on your system might be a problem for this issue. It might be preventing Discord from maintaining outgoing Connections. To check, if the issue is occurring due to this, you can either uninstall your antivirus or whitelist discord.
Whitelisting discord means letting your antivirus/firewall know that Discord is a trusted software and don’t prevent any actions taking place from Discord. For this, you have to just go to the firewall settings and enter Discord in the whitelisted entries. You can check out a YouTube video for the specific firewall that you are having to carry this out.
You can also disable your firewall for some time and check if the issue gets resolved. Go to your firewall dashboard and disable it for some time like 30 minutes or so and then check.
Another way is to uninstall your antivirus/firewall and see if the problem still persists or not.
Follow the below steps for the uninstallation
Open control panel and select Programs and features.
Look for your antivirus and firewall and right-click them and click Uninstall.
