World of Warcraft slow download.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone I just Bought all of the world of Warcraft expansion pack installed them all and now it's doing a launcher update... A 16GB one. Now don't get me wrong I don't have the fastest internet 8mb down. But it only goes at like 500kb a second on a good run. Usually 200-300. I really wan to play this game amd I'm wondering if there is a way to speed it up. Yes I am. Doing the background downloaded trick and it did help but not a lot.

Make sure that the blizzard downloader is an allowed program in your firewall. If it is allowed, then you might want to check out Blizzard's firewall article, here the ports for each of their games are listed. Just log in to your routers configuration web page, and configure the ports for the Blizzard Downloader.
And by the way, the background downloader is only working for minor updates since it allows the game to play while downloading.
