      World of Warcraft Patch D/L

      Hi all,

      I do not know if this is the right place or whether anyone can help but I am going slightly mad.

      I have just allowed my son back on World of Warcraft and before he can get to play the damn game a patch has to be installed. The d/l is slow and keeps disconnecting.

      The first problem was that the windows xp service patch 2 firewall was in place i added the 2 port addresses specified. However, they also suggest addinga range of ports but i couldn't find how to add a range of ports easily in windows.

      I added the ports and the range to my router; the new sagem. However, ia m not too if i have done this correctly.

      The next error was a a tracker error??? Which seems to point to a router/firewall and/or a window firewall problem.

      Another problem is that the connection keeps being lost whilst d/l this patch.

      Can anyone help, please.

      Mis

      Hi

      You may need to add a rule to the firewall of the router to help you.

      Which router is it?

      No your not going mad, the world of warcraft patches by using peer to peer, which means that you are getting the patch off other people who have the patch.

      The WoW patcher is unbeliveably slow and even if you do everything correctly it doesn't make any difference, the best I ever saw from it was 5-20k/sec.

      It's practically useless if you have to download 1-2gig of patches.

      Fileplanet carries all the patches and game clients for wow and can be found here:

      FilePlanet: Patches Downloads | World of Warcraft | World of Warcraft Series

      You have to register for the site but rather than muck about with the p2p software all you have to do is to install a small loader programme and then wait in line until you can download it in 1 go.

      Hope that helps.

      Re: World of Warcraft Patch D/L

      The patches have now updated.

      I am now having problems with the connection!!! It keeps dropping and then not reconnecting. Also the game keeps flashing to a black screen.

      Anybody any ideas.
