I'm using a REST external data model with more than 2000 rows on it and I'm getting time out errors (failed: Invalid Request: Read timed out).  Any way to get around this?

Can you limit the number of records returned from the service, via a URL Parameter? What service is it? Many services let you add a "limit=NUM_ROWS" parameter, or pagination parameters, to the URL that will let you retrieve a limited subset of the total data.
