The connection string http://www.connectionstrings.com/?carrier=sqlserver2005 has an optional property for "Connection Timeout" http://articles.techrepublic.com.com/5100-10878_11-6084879.html# which you would set as in the example below (the actual connection string will depend on your type of connection).

CommandTimeout http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.data.sqlclient.sqlcommand.commandtimeout.aspx is different than ConnectionTimeout http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.data.sqlclient.sqlconnection.connectiontimeout.aspx
Provider=SQLNCLI;Server=myServerAddress;Database=myDataBase;Uid=myUsername; Pwd=myPassword;Connection Timeout=10;
