5 Easy Solutions to Fix Discord Awaiting Endpoint Error


If you are you experiencing “Awaiting Endpoint” error on Discord, then this means that the Discord is having an issue getting connected to the server.

In this case, the issue could be that the Discord servers are down or that problem could be in your network.

In order to fix this, follow these steps:

  1. Restart Discord
  2. Update Discord
  3. Restart your Router or Use VPN
  4. Change Server Region
  5. Re-Install Discord

Solution # 1: Restart Discord

The first thing you should do is to exit Discord and run it again. For this purpose:

Open Task Manager via right-clicking the Start menu.

Right-click “Discord” and click on “End task“.

Sometimes, this issue could be caused due to a server problem. In this case, simply head over to “discordstatus.com” and check if there are any server issues.

Solution # 2: Update Discord

An outdated version of Discord could lead to this issue. Discord updates automatically.

However, you should run Discord as administrator to rule out the possibility of any issue.

Simply right-click the Discord and click on ‘Run as administrator’. The program will update automatically.

Solution # 3: Restart Router or Use VPN

Test your internet connection by opening a site in your browser. Make sure it is running fine.

If there are issues with your internet, try restarting your router.

If the error still persists after restarting your router, try running a VPN in order to get rid of this error.

Solution # 4: Change Server Region

This method is usually recommended for this error and it only works on voice channels.

For this method to work, you need to have administrative privileges. If you are a standard user, this won’t work.

Open Discord and highlight the voice channel that you want to make a change in.

Then click on the Settings icon or right-click the voice channel and click on ‘Edit channel‘.

Go to ‘Region Override‘ section and click on ‘Automatic‘ to bring a drop-down menu from where you can change your region.

Save the changes after changing your region.

Solution # 5: Re-Install Discord

If the above methods don’t work out in your favor, simply uninstall the program and install it again. Here’s how to do this:

Open Start menu and type “programs“. Click on “Add or remove programs“.

Search for Discord and right-click it, then click on “Uninstall“.

Now head over to Discord’s official site and download the latest version of the program.

Final Note

To sum up, the awaiting endpoint error appears on Discord when it is having difficulty in connectivity to server.

However, it can be easily solved by restarting Discord app, updating it, restarting your router, changing server region inside Discord.

If none of these works, un-installing and then re-installing Discord is final solution.
