Hi,The WebClient object in .NET doesn't expose the request TimeOut property.In case you decided to use this object it is better to inherit from it and expose the TimeOut property. 

public class SearchWebClient : WebClient
   public SearchWebClient()
        Timeout = 2000;

    public SearchWebClient(int timeout)
      Timeout = timeout;

/// Request timeout in milliseconds 
public int Timeout { get; set; }
protected override WebRequest GetWebRequest(Uri address)
   WebRequest result = base.GetWebRequest(address);
   if(result != null) 
      result.Timeout = Timeout;
     return result;
