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.
