Apex Legends seems to be having some problems with its Servers Status. Is Apex Legends down for maintenance, or is there an error saying Apex Legends Not Connecting to Server?
If you've received a message saying "Apex Legends cannot connect to EA servers" or something of the type, you're going to want to read on and see what's up with the game. While we can't promise a solution, we have collected a number of methods that you can try out and see if they help!
Cannot Connect to EA Server Error
Firstly, make sure that you've added the Origin client as an exception to whatever Firewall/antivirus software you might be using. Sounds simple, but apparently this has solved the issue in a variety of cases. Additionally, you might have to unblock certain Internet ports to get rid of the "cannot connect to EA server" message. Depending on your particular router, you might have a harder or easier time of getting this done. In any case, be sure to open the following ports:
TCP: 80; 443; 9960-9969; 1024-1124; 3216; 18000; 18120; 18060; 27900; 28910; 29900
UDP: 1024-1124; 18000; 29900
If that doesn't help, either, here's more potential solutions to the problem:
- run Origin as administrator
- set the correct time and date on your OS
- clear Origin cache data
- clear temporary files on your OS
- flush DNS cache
- reset Windows Host files on your OS
Depending on your particular setup and the issue you are facing, any number of these may or may not help. If you come across any other solutions, be sure to let us know so that we can add them to the list!
