Problems with discord connectivity

Q: Problems with discord connectivity

Lately I have noticed a problem with my discord , when I open any game I automatically disconnect from the discord server I am in and have to alt+tab to connect again . But the issue is that when I alt+tab back to the game I am playing I disconnect yet again.Especially for rb6 siege when I open the game not only do I disconnect from discord but I also get my entire pc frozen. Thanks for reading , I would be very thankful if someone who knows a fix to this just helps me out.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)



So i have recently been having a load of problems with audio in my discord. I am using a behringer soundcard, that i am both using for audio in and audio out.

So the wierd thing with this is that when i have restarted my PC, i go in to discord (and my audio settings) and see audio input from the "Line in" from the behringer soundcard. So, now discord is using the audio device and also blocks all the other sound out. I can't for say listen to music on soundcloud or watch youtube. It has basically taken control over the soundcard completely, and it is first until i go into the task manager and kill discord completely and restart say youtube, that i get audio output from my computer.

And the same with the opposite. When i start up without discord automatically starting, audio is coming out from my pc, but when i then start discord and try to check if audio is coming in from my mic and such, nothing is there. Now discord does not have access to the device.

Honestly, there is many repeating occasions in this so i apologize if i have put it any wrong, but i hope you people understand me here!

Worth notating is that i produce music with Fruity Loops 20, in which i have selected "BEHRINGER USB AUDIO" as my main audio device. I can then in the software use the two audio inputs it offers to record say a guitar or a microphone. Same as how i have used my mic to record, i use it in discord.

The main reason for that soundcard being bought was for the ... Read more

Over the past few months I've periodically been hounded to try either Kik or Discord as a secondary means of communication between my online friends. However no offense to them intended, but I just don't trust anyone enough to use anything I thought was similar to Skype or social media. After finally researching them though I actually can't find anything wrong with. Apparently Discord is DDOS proof & Kik doesn't expose any personally identifiable information either, claiming to be a very secure messaging app. Although I know malicious attachments embedded within pics, videos or links could possibly be sent with either, here are my questions about that & more.
1: Is Discord or Kik really DDOS proof & how exactly do they go about hiding your IP when Skype still doesn't?
2: Is there a setting within Discord or Kik to automatically block images, videos, links or any other specified attachment yet still use the text & voice chat?
3: Are there any other security & privacy vulnerabilities with either app that I should be aware of before using?

A:Kik VS Discord Or Neither?

Discord has pretty poor stability and its application is literally a Chromium frame of the web client with a few extra features. Plus it isn't 100% end-to-end encrypted - servers are also just centralised, not actual servers that you install to your computer, which brings confusion. I really dislike Discord as a platform, it will disappear in some years just like every other proprietary trendy IM/VoIP service has done so. I have to use it because everyone I know is way too stubborn to try IRC or XMPP. Cannot say anything for Kik.

Here is my issue: I use the desktop app for Discord primarily. (Yes, I have Win 10, which was not a download but came pre-installed on my laptop.) I haven't had any issues with this until the 28th of April. My comp restarted &, upon trying to load Discord, it said it was installing update 1 of 1. Then it spits out the following error (error is posted below). I tried restarting my comp, but it didn't work. So I uninstalled Discord. But when I went to re-install it, it only got to a certain point & then spit out the same error. So I tried to look online for a solution. I found a video which I followed to delete the localapp folder & stop all the Discords through task manager. I did everything the video said to do except restart Discord because I couldn't. I couldn't even reinstall it. One site told me to pause my antivirus, which is keeping it from updating it said, but I don't know how to do that. So a friend of mine got on TeamViewer with me & tried to fix it. He ended up having to ask his tech support friend & they went through a series of steps to wipe Discord out completely & reinstall it. It worked great!... Until today. My comp decided to restart sometime today. When I loaded up Discord it said it was installing update 1 of 1. I thought 'Oh, no, not again,' but it went through & then said it was installing more updates (9 in total this time, not counting the 1). That went through but then said installing upda... Read more

Hi, I just bought a laptop and I was trying to install Discord and I got a error. When I opened up the setup logs this is what it says:

To enable assembly bind failure logging, set the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog] (DWORD) to 1.
Note: There is some performance penalty associated with assembly bind failure logging.
To turn this feature off, remove the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog].

My problem is as follows.

I want to play Tabletop audio which is a soundboard like website.
The issue is that it needs to be real-time action when the I press the button it needs to respond.
The audio should be fed to Discord which is an application like skype.
Also, I don't want feedback when I speak because, with some virtual cables and CheVolume, I managed to feed the audio from the browser to Discord, but when I speak there is an echo.
I used two accounts, one for me as a speaker and one as a bot sort of thing to play the tabletop audio sounds.

We are playing DnD so its important for it to be real-time and tabletop audio is really great for the soundboard.

Today my computer blue screened 6 times today. I've had no blue screens since I built my PC more than a year ago (not a single one). But recently its been causing major issues.

Some of the blue screens occurred whilst i had the League of Legends Client, Discord and Chrome open. Some occurred whilst the only thing i had open were Discord and Google Chrome (only tab was Twitch.tv).

All of my drivers are updated: Sound Drivers, Network Drivers, Graphics Drivers, System Drivers, Mouse and Keyboard. (Checked in Device Manager)

I ran a registry check and cleaned all registry errors.
I ran an anti-virus scan. (computer is completely clean.)
I ran an anti-malware scan. (computer is completely clean.)
I then uninstalled malware-bytes.
I ran a memory test (No Errors)
I ran a "sfc /scannow" in cmd.exe. (No integrity violations)

After all of those, it still blue screened.

I have a Blue Yeti Microphone, and it's quality only shows through within recording programs such as Audacity. How come my microphone quality is not the same standard when I talk on Skype, Discord and TeamSpeak? I have the settings modified for these programs so that it is at optimal settings, but the general quality of the microphone isn't heard. Although there is a difference between the quality of the Blue Yeti and my previous microphones, it sounds completely different from recording programs AND how it should sound as a high end microphone.

A:Sound Quality On Skype/Discord (Voice chat systems)

Quality relies on the amount of data throughput. Most chat programs place a priority on speed (ie: low latency) as opposed to quality, so the amount of data used for the audio stream are reduced.

As you noted, the quality of the mic is noticeable over your previous mic. So the mic quality isn't wasted.

I have a Samsung Series 9 ultrabook that's been having some Wi-Fi connectivity issues. It connects fine to my home 5GHz network, but it doesn't connect to any other network. I've tried Starbucks, friend's Android hotspot, friend's MacBook Air hotspot - none of them will connect.

This problem has persisted with multiple fresh installs of Windows 7 x64, and now with a fresh install of Windows 8 x64. This leads me to believe it's a hardware issue.

This laptop came with an Intel 6235 adaptor, which I then replaced with a more powerful Intel 6300 card. I can't remember if the problems persisted with the OEM card.


A:Connectivity Problems

You might have better luck with the hotspots using the Public network option.

There may be a mode adjustment for your wireless NIC for either 5GHz or 2.4GHz, look in the settings of the Intel 6300 and try updating the drivers as well. You might try using the Intel wireless connection software, it might work better without the Intel connection software, hard to say for sure.

Helloo everyone~ I'm having a bit of trouble here. I know nothing about computers, especially when it comes to laptops and the wireless stuff. But here's my problem.

After being online for awhile (and sometimes not even that) my connection will just drop and I'll loose internet. My brother, who's computer is connected via hardline into the wireless router (which is connected to the modem, etc ..) has NO problem what so ever, rarely does he have the problem I do. I'm not sure if it's my wireless network card (that comes with the laptop? see I don't even know how that part works), but when I open up my 'connect to a network' window, other wireless accounts around the area I live in show up. Sometimes ours does, sometimes it doesn't, and when I try to reconnect it'll drop right away and send me back to the main connection window, and I have to keep refreshing to keep trying to get it to come up. Sometimes it works and I'm fine for the rest of the night. Sometimes it doesn't work at all and I'm stuck with no internet -- while my brother continues to have NO problem using the internet on his computer as well. Is this a problem with the router or my network card? I honestly have no idea, and I fear it being the network card as I don't have the money to buy a new one or have my laptop taken in to have it replaced. The longest I've been disconnected was an hour before it reconnected again. Some days it&#... Read more

Have recently bought a Win XP laptop. However, using a dial-up I am having a real problem with accessing web-pages or email. The modem dials up fine and establishes a connection. However, beyond that whenever I open up Firefox or IE or an email client I cannot establish a connection with the relevant pages or server. I had ZoneAalarm installed, and in order to verify whether this was an over-enthusiastic clampdown by ZA I also uninstalled it. After going through the routine of rebooting, I still cannot access the web-pages nor email server despite there being an internet connection established via my modem.

I have no idea what to do, so any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

I did check and the ISP is *not* having any problems.

Thanks for the assist.

Hmmm Well lets see where to start.

Well let me try to make this as brief as possible. I have a desktop pc that is connected directly to my DSL modem. I then have a Dlink wireless router that allows me to connect a laptop wirelessly.

The problem that I am having right now is I can not get connectivity on my desktop. I have tried pinging a couple of sites and get nothing using the www. I then tried the tp ping the ip addy of my ISP. The response I got was " destination net unreachable". I have tried rebooting the DSL modem, rebooting the computer, reinstalling the network adapter and drivers.

I have no problems with the wireless router. Just the desktop.

I can't access the internet... I called my ISP but they seem totally disorganized so I thought maybe I can figure this out myself.. I have an USB modem and the ADSL signal is off... everynow and then it comes, I succeed in getting online but then after 2 minutes it logges off... i'm frustrated... does anyone know if I can somehow solve such a problem?
Would a router help?

A:connectivity problems

Routers are mainly only if you want to go wireless. If you aren't getting a connection now, a new router wouldn't make a difference.

Well, the common things that your ISP would say is to;
- Turn off your computer
- Turn off and unplug your modem
- Wait for 30-40 seconds
- Plug in your modem to your to the internet connection jack
- Then plug in your modem for power
- Wait until connection settles, then turn on your computer

If your modem isn't showing a settled connection, then there's something wrong with your ISP, not your computer....because then that means the connection isn't getting to ur house in the first place. If your modem is showing a settled incoming connection, but you're still not able to go online, then there's something wrong with your computer.

I'm not sure if the ADSL signal indicates a settled connection, but if it does and its off, keep trying your ISP...nothing wrong with your computer...something wrong at their place.

We have a NETGEAR router that we have been using for at least a year now which has not given us any problem. I bought a new laptop yesterday and created a new network on it to establish internet connection for it. Now however, the internet is not working on another laptop or the XBOX 360. The older laptop even says it's connected but the the brower pops up, it just says cannot display webpage. I feel like I've tried every strategy that I know of and it still doesn't work.

I'm running XP home and SP2 with XP firewall on my laptop and I've previously connected to the Internet via my desktop (home network). For no apparent reason I started getting the "limited or no connectivity" message on the laptop and the Internet went down, though file sharing with the desktop still worked. So I started messing around with the settings on both computers and now even file sharing is down (well done, eh?).

I've read about connectivity problems on the web and tried pretty much everything by now, so I'm starting to run out of ideas.

- It's not the cable, already tried switching it
- The desktop connects just fine so I guess it's not the DSL router either (but sure, I tried reseting it, though I haven't yet tried taking all cables out and waiting, as someone recommended. I doubt that'll help, though.)
- I've tried connecting the laptop directly to the router (used to work just fine) but that doesn't help, so it's not the desktop interfering.
- I've tried ipconfig /release and /renew, but it just says unable to contact DHCP server. I'm getting the dreaded 169.254.xxx IP address.
- Microsoft's patch, winsockxpfix and different netsh commands - no good
- I've tried deleting winsock from the registry and reinstalling tcp/ip.
- I've tried updating the network drivers.
- The network settings seem to be right, the same as the desktop has

Hello, im new. I have a problem with my LAN. I recently built a new computer. I am a computer building newby, but i loved doing it and hope to build more. My problem is with my motherboards LAN. I connected my motherboard to my cable modem. I can connect to websites, but i cannot connect to other things. I cannot connect to certain other sites. When i try and download THEALLSEEINGEYE or connect to my email i cannot. This is very strange but i think that there is a problem with how my LAN is set up. I have limited knowledge in this area. I have rebooted my cable modem, changed the wire from modem to computer. I have called ASUS tech support 4 times. They had me ping my hardware on the motherboard and they said that they hardware was not the problem. When i tried to ping myself or my gateway it didnot work (full packet loss). Please forgive my Noobishness, i have fiddled with my network connections untill i was blue in the face. I dont know what else to do.I dont have a router. I think that it has something to do with how my computer accesses certain addresses over the internet and the settings of such. My firewall has been disabled.I have fooled around with the BIOS but to no avail.

I have static IP addresses on all three of them.

I have uninstalled AVG and refreshed the WINSOCK entries per the suggestion in the above link.

I have an internet connectivity problem that is driving me crazy (for over a year). I cannot get stock quotes from the MSN web site. I type in the stock symbol and it just hangs. Recently, it has even got worse, now by version of Money 2003 will not update prices automatically either (I have to manually enter them).

I am using t-online (ISDN with an ADSL-USB Modem - AT AR215), live in Germany, run Windows ME, IE 6.0 and have had the latest updates from the Windows Web site.

In addition, many other sites do not open as well, including sites like Old Navy, etc (although that is not bad, then my kids won't spend any money : ) - of course anything linked on to MSN generally doesn't work.

Other sites, including those like banks, credit card accounts there is no problem.

Any great ideas out there?

I am using Acer Ferrari LM3200 Notebook and have ran into connectivity problems recently. I have Windows XP and both service packs installed.

The problem is that my internet began to stop responding. I use the "REPAIR" option at 'Network Connections' and it works again for some time (for about 3-5 minutes) and then does not respond again. If I do not "repair", it doesnt respond for about 10 min and then starts working again for 3-5 minutes.

I can not think of any system change that could have caused this problem. I've used my system for a while now and have not made any changes for some time.

Could this be some kind of harware error? Or is it more likely to be related with software? Could anyone please help?

One of the 2003s and the NT are in a Workgroup with the rest of the computers the other 2003 is in a Domain. All the computers have fixed IP's except for the laptops. One of the laptops, running Windows 2000, has recently been having problems with connecting to mapped drives. When the laptop is turned on the mapped drives connect but usually within a half an hour they get red Xs on them, and when they are opened the following error is given:

"An Error Occurred while reconnecting S: to \\server\folder. Microsoft Windows Network: The Local Device name is already in use. This connect has been restored."

When the NT server is mapped and this happens the laptop ceases to recognize any of the computers in the workgroup and the domain. If one waits long enough it will be restored.

That secondary problem doesn’t occur with the 2003’s and they return much faster.

Also, it will not enter the domain itself but the Server inside of it can be accessed by typing it into the address bar, but that may be unrelated.

We have seen a similar problem very temporarily on 2 other computers but that may not be related and those problems were very minor.

If the laptop is restarted with the drives mapped, the process is restarted again. If the mapped drives are disconnected and then the computer is... Read more

I am having issues with my desktop computer. The internet connectivity seems to go in and out as I'm working. It's almost like a glitch in service. It always comes back with in seconds but is very inconvenient. I have the lap top next to me as well, to check if the service is going out on that at the same time. The lap top stays connected the whole time. I just used the ping command to check my LAN card on the desktop and it reads Sent 4 Received 4 Loss 0. Which is good according to what I see online. Anyone have any suggestions as to what could be the problem? Any ideas great appreciated.
Thank you!

A:Connectivity Problems

the desktop is connected directly to the router by cable
and the laptop by wireless or also cable

is that correct

try changing to google open dns

Google public DNS
Note using google public DNS servers from outside the US may actually slow performace - so use the following as a test to identify DNS issues - if these resolve the issues , then we need to investigate further to optimise the use of DNS
Google public DNS

Theres also a link on how to setup those DNS IP address up on a PC

How to set XP here

Then once you have set up those DNS entries

Flush & register DNS

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):
In the command prompt window that opens, type the following commands:


If you receive the message
The requested operation requires elevation.
Then please open the command prompt as administrator
Start> All Programs> Accessories and then right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

now type the command again

My current problem with my dsl connection is that it seems to bog down anywhere between 5 seconds to 10 seconds at a time. Ill be going from site to site and at one site everything displays on the screen very quickly. Then the next site either times out or if it loads it takes it a min or two to load. I can click refresh a couple times and then the site will load ok.

My dsl is through bellsouth and ive got 3 computers and a xbox linked into bellsouth's 2wire modem/router. My modem is directly connected to an outside wire that bellsouth brought in due to some problems I was having several months ago. I had them back out last week concerning the new problem and everything checks out ok, they said if its not disconnecting then its the network we have set up.

I was told several months back that the main computers hard drive was too full and that could cause some problems. I was hoping that was the problem and bought an external HD to transfer alot of files over but to no help.

Hope someone here might have some insight on why my connection slows/bogs down. Thanks for any help.

Welcome to TSG:We are going to need to know a lot more about your environment to start on this.
Please provide the following information.
I think that this thread should also probably be moved to the networking forum with the requested info.

Request to Provide network information,as compiled by Johnwill

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

What country are you located in.
Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
What is the expected Upstream/Downstream speed for your ISP Connection?
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Make and model of your computer.

The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.

Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.

If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?

If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?

On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

Hello!  I bought a HP ProBook 450 G 0  about four years ago and it has worked great until this year. I'm having trouble connecting to wi-fi. It either doesn't connect at all or it connects for a short period, several minutes - but only when it's very close to the router.I've tried reinstalling windows, drivers (maybe the drivers aren't the right ones...), I've even bought a new router, but still no luck. What can I do? Thank you!Best wishes!

I am in a house with 2 roommates. We all share a wireless cable internet. The router is all the way across the house, but is re-transmitted through my roommates "extender" So my connection is usually pretty fast.

My problem is, that when I restart, or after I wake up in the morning, I find that my internet does not work. This doesnt happen everytime, I'de say 3 out of 5 times.

When this happens I will either switch between the raw signal and the re-router, or restart. Sometimes it works, sometimes I do nothing, and then in a matter of say 5 or 10 minutes my internet magically works.

I dont have a single clue what could be the cause of this.

A:Internet Connectivity Problems

Are you hibernating the PC, or do you have the power settings such that the wireless network adapter is being shut down when the PC is idle for a long period?

Successful Internet connection just goes away after a few minutes or few hours. Happens to three of four computers on peer-to-peer network. No viruses found. Happens whether connection is dial-up or broadband (cable modem). Very little application software running. Also happened on earlier version of IE. Is running a HP Jet Direct 300 as a small printer server and I believe this uses IPX while internet connections use TCP/IP. Fourth computer running Windows 2000 on network is not affected and continues working on the internet. Requires reboot to restart internet connection.

Help - Any ideas?

I just upgraded to Windows 7 from Vista, I wanted to keep all my files and programs in place. Now I am having trouble with internet activity, it seems like I have a cap on bandwidth that has been set up by Windows 7. When I exceed said cap it will disconnect the LAN and I have to go into the Network and Sharing Center to have 7 troubleshoot the problem and it eventually resets the network adapter, which resets my connection until it shuts off again. There are very long periods when it doesn't disconnect, sometimes it's very short.

I've been looking for solutions for this since I upgraded, I found one that worked for someone and that was setting a static IP for the network adapter, this was done by accessing the LAN from the network and sharing center and changing it from 'obtain IP automically' to 'use the following IP address'. Using this method, I succeeded in connecting to the internet, but it still had the same issues as before. I have undone these changes so it's back to obtaining the IP automatically.

I am thinking that I should try to A) upgrade the firmware in the router B) update the drivers in my network adapter (I can't find a specific name for the drivers I have) C) Do a clean install of either Vista or 7

I would appreciate any advice on what to do next, as I am unfamiliar with what is really wrong here.

A:Problems with keeping connectivity.

Updating the router firmware and network adapter drivers are good first step.

The Device Manager should tell you what you need to know about the network adapter and it's current driver.

You can post that info here and we can take a look at it.
