Discord is a service that exists to enable seamless conversation between a group of people, but when it’s stuck on RTC connecting it can be hard to solve.
Gamers have flocked to the platform in recent years and it is the go-to when speaking to friends online, surpassing household names such as Skype.
If you’re new to the service then you might not know how to solve some of the errors that pop up on Discord.
Voice connection errors or microphone issues are something quite common on the platform and they shouldn’t be too hard to fix.
For those who don’t know how to solve these issues, we’ve put together this guide to some voice connection errors to get you talking again.
Common voice connection errors with Discord
As mentioned above, there are a number of different connection errors that can occur on Discord.
Text such as “ICE checking”, “No route” or “Stuck RTC connecting” may pop up relating to suspected errors with your connection.
While these all sound quite different they all relate to the same or similar technical issues that the majority of users face.
For one reason or another, the outcome is that Discord isn’t being allowed to connect you to the server and therefore to your friends.
How to get connected with Discord
The best thing to do with most technical errors is to try restarting things. So, start off by restarting your WiFi router and your computer to see if that solves things.
Next, we recommend to check your Anti Virus software and make sure that Discord isn’t temporarily disabled or blacklisted.
If you’re using a VPN, be sure to check that it isn’t blocking your connection, as Discord only works with certain VPN providers.
If you’re on a public network such as work or university, you could check with the admin as Discord could be blocked on their shared network.
What to do if Discord is still stuck on RTC connecting
If the above options aren’t solving the issue don’t fret because we have some other less conventional solutions for you to try below.
If you’re the admin of the chat you can try changing voice region, this sometimes works because of blocks a network might have on it in your region, you can change this under voice settings.
Disabling QoS or Quality of Service could help if you have a weak connection. Go to “User Settings”, “Voice and Video” and then turn off “Enable Quality of Service High Packet Priority.”
