If you are getting excessive network timeouts, your router is not compatible with Madden (for reasons unknown or not admitted by EA). If you have a router/modem all in one, YOU MUST REPLACE IT WITH A MODEM ONLY FROM YOUR ISP AND BUY A ROUTER SEPERATELY. I have had ALOT of network timeouts in Madden 13, and have tried everything. THIS WORKS!! I have played over 20 games without one network timeout or lagging issue since.
