ASP.NET VB running query against several servers times out.

I have an asp.net vb app that will let you enter any query and run it against a single sql 2000 server or as many as 100 servers.  The results are displayed in a gridview.  This works great, unless it times out.  I have increased the connection timeout but still seem to have the same problem.  Thanks in advance for the help
VB Code ********
If RadioButton1.Checked = True Then 'All servers
                    myConnection = New SqlConnection("server=10.20.14.31;uid=user;pwd=pass;database=SCADA_DATA")
                    'establishing connection. you need to provide password for sql server
                    Try
                        myConnection.Open()
                        'opening the connection
                        myCommand = New SqlCommand("Select * from serverlist", myConnection)

Hi,

Try this

da.SelectCommand.CommandTimeout = 0

This will set NO TIME OUT for your query, but be careful because since there is no time out it could get stuck if the query does not respond.

Hope that helps

Ok, then, the error is getting from your ScriptManager,  try this, change your ScriptManaget tag in you markup  with this

<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" AsyncPostBackTimeOut="36000" runat="server" />
