The “No Route” error on Discord prevents many Discord users from joining the voice channel. How can I fix this error? After reviewing several articles on how to fix the Discord “No Route” error, I’ve put together some of the best solutions that may help you.
If you don’t know how to fix the Discord “No Route” error, try the following solutions one by one.
What’s causing the Discord “No Route” error?
- QoS is not working on your network
- The computer is using VPN without UDP
- Discord is blocked by your network administrator
- The IP address assigned to your computer has been changed
- Third-party firewall or antivirus software is blacklisting Discord.
- The language region of the server is not compatible with your client.
How to fix the “No route” Discord error?
Configure your antivirus and firewall settings
- Click on the “Start” button.
- In the search bar, type “Control Panel.”
- Click on the “View by” drop-down menu and select “Small icons”.
- Select “Windows Defender Firewall.”
- Select “Advanced Settings.”
- Select “Inbound Rules” in the left sidebar, then click “New Rule” in the right sidebar.
- Select “Port” for the new rule, then “Next”.
- Under “Does this rule apply to…” select “TCP”.
- Click on the “Specific Local Ports” option.

- Enter a name in the “Name” field, such as “Discord,” and a description if you like, then click “Done.”
Restart the modem/router and computer
Sometimes a simple reboot is enough to solve a technical problem. Even if you have a static IP address, you should restart your modem/router to update your network settings and free up system resources that may have been blocked. Then try reconnecting to the channel.
Turn on UDP in your VPN
Discord seems to work well with VPNs that have User Datagram Protocol (UDP) enabled for connections. So if you’ve recently changed your VPN settings, try restoring them to their previous state and rebooting your computer before trying to connect to the channel again. This will restore your connection and hopefully allow you to connect successfully.
Frequently Asked Questions
A VPN connection is another possible reason for the Discord "no route" error, because the Discord app cannot work with a VPN that lacks the User Datagram Protocol (UDP). To fix this error, it's best to disable the VPN completely and try to connect Discord to the voice server.
