Solution 2: Change the server location
To provide the service quickly and prevent the overload on the single server many companies has build server all across the globe. Like that Discord also has server in different location. When you connect / open discord it connects you to the nearest server to provide the service quickly and without any lag.
If the local server of your location is down as a result you are getting discord awaiting endpoint, then you should swap the server with another server to continue using Discord. Once the local server is back online you can shift back to your local server.
To change the Discord server location simply follow the steps:
- Obviously first step is opening the Discord. So, open the discord and go to setting at the top left section.
- Once you have clicked you will see different options. Here, click on the “Server Setting”.
- Once you are in the server setting you will see something like this:
- As you can see in the above screenshot, the server region is “US South” (The server region changes as per your location. As mentioned earlier its for providing fast service to you.). Click on the “Change” in “Server Region”.
- Once you have clicked “Change”, you will see the different list of Discord Server. Select any of the server which is close to your address.
- Once you have changed the server it will ask for confirmation. Just confirm the changes and the server is changed.
Once you have changed the server you should back to action again and no longer see the annoying “Connecting” in the Discord.
If changing the server doesn’t solve the problem then the problem is with your network we have to check the internet connection. To check it follow the next method.
