Method 1. Restart your Router and Computer
You may receive the Discord No Route error if your network connection is constantly interrupted by a changing dynamic IP address. Therefore, it is recommended that you first restart your router* and computer and if the problem is not resolved, then proceed to the following methods.
* Note: To restart your router, simply unplug its power cable for 1 minute and then plug it back in.
Method 2. Disable or Uninstall any Third-Party Antivirus Program.
If you're using a third party antivirus/security program, try to disable it temporally and check if the problem persists. If the "No Route" error still appears on Discord then try to completely remove your security/firewall program by following the steps below:
3. In the newly launched window, locate and right-click on your third-party antivirus program and select Uninstall.
4. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the uninstallation process.
5. Restart the computer and check if the problem persists.
Method 3. Disable/Disconnect VPN/
Using a VPN connection that is not configured to use UDP (User Datagram Protocol) can also cause the "No Route"error, due to the fact that the Discord app does not work with VPNs that do not use UDP.
So if you're using a VPN solution, check out how UDP is handled on the service provider's website. Alternatively, you try to disconnect from the VPN and connect directly to Discord to determine if the VPN is the culprit. If that fixes the problem, then it's best to change your VPN provider.
Method 4. Disable Quality of Service High Packet Priority.
1. Launch Discord and click on the gear icon located in the bottom left corner of the window.
2. In APP SETTINGS, select Voice & Video from the left panel.
