Apex Legends – Error code net – Connection to server timed out – How to fix

What is Error code net in Apex Legends

It is a connection based problem that has recently taken over Apex Legends. This issue was always there in the game, but it wasn’t so prominent. Now after The Old Ways event update, the error is showing up for more and more people.

This bug or error mainly shows up when a player is at the character selection menu. Just when a player is about to select his/her character, his/her game would suddenly freeze, and they would end up getting kicked from the match.

The error says : Connection to server timed out (code:net). See ea.com/unable-to-connect for additional information.

This funny thing is the link that is provided in the message tells us nothing about fixing the problem. It just shows some basic troubleshooting steps that don’t do much.

How to fix this error

Now, you have to realize that it is very hard to say what problem is causing this error to take place. It can be because of the servers, or it can be due to a poor internet connection.

In order to make sure that it is not happening due to the servers just check the server status of Apex Legends. Just visit downdetector, and you will get all the information about the servers.

But if the problem is from your side then there are plenty of things you can do. I personally encounter this error at least 3-4 times a day and here is what you should do:

  1. Check whether you are getting packet loss on the server you are playing. Change server if you are experiencing loss
  2. Just restart Origin once. Make sure you close the launcher from the Task Manager because just hitting the cross button on Origin just minimizes it
  3. Restart your Router once
  4. Do a quick speedtest and make sure that your connection is fine and your ping is not too high
  5. Check whether you are getting any “request timed out”
  6. To do that just press Windows + R keys on your keyboard
  7. Type ping google.com -t
  8. Press enter

If you get “request timed out” during the test then you should contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and ask them to fix your connection.
