Fix #1: Check the EA server status.

Verifying the EA server status is an important first step in this situation. Most of the time, the Madden 22 “unable to connect to EA server” error message is caused by an issue from the EA side. You have a couple of options on how to do this — using the official EA website, check the official EA social media accounts, or by using third party websites.

Fix #2: Check for updates.

If the EA servers are fine but Madden 22 still lost connection, make sure that you check for the latest game updates before launching the game again. New games such as Madden NFL 22 require patches from time to time to address known bugs. 

If the game has already been updated, then proceed to the next solution.

Fix #3: Reboot your device.

Refreshing your device is another simple trick that you must try in this case. Sometimes, restarting a PC or console is enough to fix a connection problem or a particular error message such as the Madden 22 “unable to connect to EA server.” 

Fix #4: Check your internet connection.

Playing online on Madden 22 may sometimes be interrupted by your own home internet connection issues. If Madden 22 is still not letting you connect to EA and there’s no EA servers issue at this point, you want to make sure that the cause of the problem is not coming from your end. You need to check for three possible reasons: slow connection, intermittent connection, or wifi signal interference.

The first troubleshooting step that you want to do in this case is to ensure that you power cycle or reboot your network equipment.

After the devices have been restarted, run a speed test to check your download and upload speeds. If your download speed is below 5 Mbps, your PC or console may have a hard time maintaining good connection to the EA servers. 

Another issue you need to watch out for is intermittent connection. If you noticed that your PC or console keeps losing internet connection, this may be the reason why it is unable to connect to EA servers right now.

If you need support in fixing your home internet, we suggest that you get help from your Internet Service Provider.

Fix #5: Use wired connection. 

If you’re using wifi and your computer or console keeps disconnecting from the internet, consider using a direct wired connection from the router. It’s possible that your wifi has become unstable, or there’s something that interferes with the wireless signal.
