Oh my god thank you so much! I tried every method and nothing worked, but as soon as I disconnected my external USB it immediately worked!!

Glad the USB solution is working for some.
I don't have a USB connected
It's obvious there's something not right if this is a solution.
Can EA please fix
I had the same issue, and sure enough after trying literally everything else on a fresh load of windows 10, unplugging the USB thumb drive worked.... has to be one of the dumbest things i've seen
One problem.... External WiFi adapter USB + keyboard and mouse..... So do these effect it in any way?
Unfortunately its quite challenging to play the game on the PC if I can't use a USB mouse or keyboard!
I'm not even sure if I have a PS-2 connector, never mind a PS-2 keyboard or mouse!
Short fix for now could be to use an old client, this works fine (10.5.41) otherwise the simplest way to fix it is have old client code and new client code side by side, any anti-cheat, any alterations to how the client handles the player connecting to the server, these are the problematic areas..... I am studying software development and have worked on similar problems for the fun of it, and my best guess is that the new client has problems with USB drives, this is clearly a software problem.
