What Causes Discord “Awaiting Endpoint” Error?
This error gets stuck on ‘Awaiting Endpoint’ and will not allow you to connect to a server.
It can be annoying but the good thing is, it’s fairly easy to fix.
- This issue is network-related and it can occur when some of the Discord servers are down.
- It can also happen if your device fails to connect to one of the servers.
4 Ways To Fix Awaiting Endpoint Error on Discord
Let’s take a look at easy solutions to fix this Discord error for good.
Fix #1 – Wait for Discord Servers
The first thing to do is simply wait for a while, giving Discord time to fix their servers.
This issue will usually fix itself after a while, so you should give it a couple of hours and then try Discord again to see whether it works.
Fix #2 – Change Server Region
Something else you can try to fix Discord Awaiting Endpoint error is changing the server region on your PC, by following these steps:
- Launch Discord on your PC.
- Click on ‘Settings’ in the menu on the left hand side.
- Now click on ‘Overview’ in ‘Server Settings’ and change the server location.
- Restart Discord and see whether the Endpoint error has been fixed.
The reason behind this is that Discord servers connect to a specific geographical area. The nearer you are to a server, the less lag you should experience in your calls.
If there is a server outage with your local server, changing it to try a different region can solve the problem.
Fix #3 – Restart Router or Use VPN
Try to access a website using your browser. If you can, there is no problem with your internet connection.
If there are problems with it, unplug your router’s power cable and plug it back in. Try using a Virtual Private Network, or VPN, to see whether that solves the problem.

- Type ‘Task’ in the search bar and click ‘Open’ under ‘Task Manager’.
- Look for Discord-related processes and click ‘End Task’ next to them.
- Click ‘Start’, tap on ‘Settings’ and then click ‘Apps’.
- Find Discord and choose ‘Uninstall’.
- Press “OK” to confirm and wait until the app has been removed.
