How do I fix Error 1105 on Discord?

Before we move to the slightly complex solutions, perform these quick checks first:

  • Make sure both the CloudFlare services and Discord servers are up and running. You can also use a reliable service like Downdetector to verify the same. If the services are down, wait for an hour or two and try again.
  • Restart both the computer and the modem/router.
  • Check if the issue is limited to the website and the desktop app or Discord is inaccessible on mobile as well. In most cases, the mobile app worked fine.
  • Switch to another network. If the mobile app works fine, use a mobile hotspot to access the Internet on the computer.

If none work, head to the fixes listed next.

1. Use a VPN service

Discord users faced with Error 1105 should use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to bypass any local limitations on a restrictive network. Besides, if the server issue is localized, you can connect to a server in another region to access Discord.

So, get a reliable VPN solution, choose a server that doesn’t adversely affect the Internet speed, and it should do the trick!

2. Change the DNS server

  1. Press Windows + R to open Run, type ncpa.cpl in the text field, and hit Enter.ncpa.cpl

  4. Select Use the following DNS server addresses, and enter the following values in the text field:

3. Delete Discord’s app data

  2. Locate and open the Discord folder, then press Ctrl + A to select all the files and Delete to remove them.delete files to fix discord error 1105
  3. Similarly, go to the following location and delete all the files in the Discord folder:%LocalAppData%

Clearing the app data is also an effective measure against the This interaction failed error in Discord or when the program window reads, An unknown network error has occurred.

4. Flush DNS and reset Winsock

  2. Click Yes in the UAC prompt.
  3. Now, paste the following two commands individually, and hit Enter after each: ipconfig /flushdns netsh winsock resetflush dns
  4. Once done, restart the computer and check whether the Discord Error 1105 is fixed.

Resetting the network configuration helps get rid of several Discord error codes, including Discord awaiting endpoint.

5. Contact the ISP to change the IP address

When nothing else works, you could ask the Internet Service Provider (ISP) to change the IP address. Users who faced Error 1105 in Discord found that their IP address was blocked by the servers.

If using a VPN doesn’t make sense in the long term, a new IP address will serve as a viable solution!

In case these solutions don’t work against Discord Error 1105, you can reinstall the app, be it on a PC or mobile device. But it shouldn’t come down to that, and using a VPN or changing the IP address will work in most cases!

Besides, several users have, of late, reported coming across Bad Activity Result code 96 when cropping a profile picture. Find the solutions beforehand, so that it doesn’t hamper your experience.
