Apex Legends Connection to server timed out - PC

★★★ Newbie

I've been playing Apex since the 2nd day of release and never had any problems. About two weeks ago I started to disconnect in middle of games. I get a "Connection to server timed out" error and thought it was initially on EA's end since it just randomly started happening. I started even getting the same error by just sitting in the lobby myself. I tried changing servers via the data center in game and that didn't seem to work either. Per a friends suggestion, I looked into port forwarding to maybe fix the issue but could not figure it out due to my router settings being somewhat different than every other router in existence. I have the list of ports that I need for Apex and believe that I can get this issue to work but there is a spot labeled "Local Port" and I'm not sure what to put there. A website suggested that I leave "local port" blank but that's not an option for these settings. Attached below is a snipping of the port forwarding menu for my router. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I also face this issue since a few days and can fully understand people leaving Apex because of major issues like this one.

It’s been happening for the past few weeks. My network configuration hasn’t changed, this never happened before. Something changed outside of my home maybe... I bet it is server side.

Its funny how this is the first time I have seen any type of engagement with the community from Devs or what ever. This has been an issue with the game since the beginning of December and yet I see nothing in their news section. in game twitter, or anything that they are aware of any issue the game right now and are looking into it and have updates about it every day or so. Have  a Dev stream once every 3 months talking about stuff only you guys want to hear or talk about.

there are so many bugs in this game, the game has crazy potential, i love playing it. but i find myself more frustrated rather than enjoying my time on.
