How to Fix No Route Error in Discord

/ Shayne Sherman

Many users are having trouble connecting to Discord voice channels due to a No Route error. The no route error is almost the same as the Stuck RTC Connecting Errors.

The No Route error happens because Discord is being stopped when it tries to connect to a voice server.

Most of the time the error is caused by Windows Firewall or Antivirus software preventing Discord to get access to outgoing connection.

To ensure that you can resolve the problem at the end of this article, make sure to follow all the steps in the order below.

This is not the same as the Discord Mic not Working or Can’t Hear Anyone on Discord issues.
