Close down unnneccesary processes with Gamebooster or something, Close all the other programs that you don't need open while playing.

Is it the same on all DLC maps as well? I find B2K and AK maps load pretty quick.
DICE swears blind the netcode is perfectly fine, they thoroughly tested it on their studio's LAN and it was spot on.

If you're running on a mechanical hard drive ( not an SSD ), Defrag.

Oh and you'll get less problems if you run your games off a secondary hard drive, If your Battlefield installation resides on the C drive, You'll get worse performance as Windows constantly reads and writes to the disk.

Try to launch the game and join game servers, and it should work.

Shoudlnt really be slow internet, now at that point. if it was you can test yourself. check your ping....download some files, see the speed you get. most importantly its the ping.

sounds like something wrong, even though u have no SSD, 5+ mins is too long. Try the suggestions above, and try a repair of the game if all else fails.

What is your PC spec? This is the core issue for load times.. for me load time is about 10/15 seconds on the biggest maps.

Let us know your spec. It will help know if you have bottleneck issue (Welcome to the complication of PC gaming) of course once its all going its alot better gaming experience.

Also note PC graphics are massive compared to console etc so the load time will be bigger unless you have a top notch PC :)
