FIFA 22 won’t connect to EA servers – Issue Fix
Since a few years ago, an internet connection has been required if you want to enjoy FIFA games fully. The same is true for FIFA 22. More than a few settings require a constant connection to EA servers. However, it appears that there is a network issue because some players are unable to connect to EA’s dedicated FIFA servers. We’ve discovered a few possible causes for the Unable To Connect issue in FIFA 22. Let’s take a brief look at them below.
You can solve this issue by following these steps:
- Make sure EA servers are not temporarily down. You can check the server status here.
- Check connection settings (reset your router, use LAN instead of Wi-Fi if possible, reboot the PC).
- Connection problems might occur if your Internet Service Provider’s DNS is down. DNS stands for Domain Name Server and refers to a group of servers that convert IP addresses into readable addresses (such as TheDroidGuy.com) and vice versa. If a DNS server goes down, your PC or console may be unable to interact with EA’s game servers. To determine if you have a DNS problem, consider using a free and reliable DNS service such as Google DNS or Open DNS. You are welcome to do some research on how to modify the DNS on your platform.
- Change to a wired connection. This only applies to people who connect to their computer or console through a wireless connection. As previously said, wireless is more susceptible to interference, so switch to a wired arrangement to reduce elements that may prohibit your connection from functioning correctly.
- Restart your computer or console. If a server problem does not cause the error, you may do the next thing is restart your Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, PS5, or PC. Shut down your computer or console and unplug it from the power source for 30 seconds. After that, restart it and check for the problem.
- Make sure Windows Firewall or antivirus isn’t blocking the game.
