It’s also noticeable that the particular server connectivity error is appearing on all available platforms like PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, PS4, PS5, Mac, and Google Stadia. Now, without wasting any more time, let’s jump into the guide below.
1. Check Server Status
Make sure to check out the Farming Simulator server status by following the official @farmingsim Twitter handle. If there is a server downtime or outage happening in the background, you can get all the latest reports and info in one place.
2. Check your Internet Connection
Sometimes having a poor or unstable internet connection can cause higher ping issues and eventually the server connectivity error may appear quite often. It’s always a better idea to check for the internet connection status by cross-checking the internet speed or stability with another online game.
3. Switch Internet Network
Make sure to switch your internet network from wired (ethernet) to Wi-Fi or vice versa to check whether the problem has been fixed or not. We mostly recommend using a wired internet connection so that you’ll get better stability most of the time.
4. Power Cycle on your Router
Make sure to perform a power cycle on your Wi-Fi router to check whether there is an issue with the Wi-Fi connectivity or not. Just power off the router and unplug the power cable from the router. Then wait for around 30 seconds and plug the power cable back again. Turn on the router and check for the server connectivity issue further.
5. Reset your Wi-Fi Router
Sometimes performing a factory reset on your Wi-Fi router can fix multiple glitches or temporary networking cache from the system. To do so, find out the reset button or pin-hole on the router then long-press the button for around 10-15 seconds until the LED indicators stop blinking for a while. Now, release the button and wait for the LED indicators to back in the normal blinking again. Finally, set up the Wi-Fi password and connect to it to check for the issue.
6. Restart the Farming Simulator 22 game
If you haven’t rebooted your game for a while and you’re still continuing to get into the game server for a while then make sure to restart the Farming Simulator 22 game on your console or PC. Just fully exit the game and close it from the background task. Wait for some time and then re-launch the game.
7. Reset the Gaming Device
You’ll need to perform a factory reset on the PC or console to check whether the problem has been fixed or not. Sometimes having an issue with the system can cause server connectivity or networking glitches whatsoever.
Note: Performing the Factory Reset on a device will delete all the internal data from the device. So, it’s recommended to take a backup of the C: drive files or internal storage files whatever necessary.
- Press Win+I keys to open Settings > Click on System.
- Go to Recovery > Click on Reset PC next to the ‘Reset this PC’ option.
- If prompted, make sure to delete everything and set up your PC again.
- Wait for the process to be completed and your PC will reboot to the system.
- Finally, go through the initial setup process, and you’re done.
- Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
- Select Profile & system > Settings > System > Console info.
- Select Reset console.
- On the Reset your console? screen, make sure to select Reset and remove everything.
This option will delete all user data from the Xbox console and restore the device system to the factory defaults.
- From the PS4/PS5 main menu > Go to the Settings menu.
- Go to the ‘Initialization’ tab.
- Select ‘Initialize PS4’ > Then choose ‘Full’.
- Your PlayStation 4/5 console will now begin to wipe itself and restore to the factory defaults. This process may take some time depending on the storage data.
- So, make sure to wait for the process to be completed and then your console will reboot to the system.
- Finally, go through the initial setup process > Download and Install the Farming Simulator 22 game and then check for the issue again.
8. Connect to a different network
Try connecting to a different Wi-Fi network or use a mobile hotspot to cross-check if the server connectivity issue has been reduced or solved. If that’s the reason, make sure to contact your ISP to get technical assistance on it.
9. Try Playing the game during off-peak time
It seems that plenty of active players are trying to get into the game at the same time and that eventually triggers server connectivity issues or the request timed out error. In that scenario, you should try connecting to the game server during an off-peak time when the rush is minimum.
10. Try using a VPN
It’s also worth mentioning to try using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) service to check if the problem has been fixed or not. Sometimes connecting to a different server region can fix the game server joining issues whatsoever.
