If you are on a network, then your firewall is built in your router.

Disable the firewall program. Click on start, then run, then type msconfig/ on Win 7, click the pearl icon and on the search field type msconfig then enter. On the small window, go to startup tab, then find and uncheck your firewall program. Then restart your computer. Now try WOW.

Hello, My roommate and I play World of Warcraft...

I would reset the router to default settings and use the good version of the firmware. OR delete your existing internet setup and then re-add it (do this if you didnt factory default your router before upgrading firmware)

Every time i try to download world of warcraft it says i have a fake serial number or something like that and it wont let me download things because of it. Just not world of warcraft but also everything.

Are you trying to download the trial version? If so, you HAVE TO click on a trial download lick which is not the same as the normal download link that requires a different serial number. If this is not your problem and you are trying to use a legit full game key, let me know OK?

Norton Firewall is delaying World of Warcraft patch

I would turn OFF the Norton Firewall and then download your patch. If you have a complete Norton Security System you might have to turn all of it off. Then when the patch is downloaded turn everything back on and do a virus scan to make sure nothing got in while things were turned off. Norton and McAfee are the 2 most annoying programs made. When I run my windows hard drive(s) I use free stuff and I haven't had any issues with them.

Do you use a firewall?
If yes, have you tried it while your firewalls are deactivated (on both computers)? If it works with the deactivated firewall, find out whether the firewall prevents the application from using the network (unlikely) or whether it prevents specific ports from being used.

Without any applications running, start a cmd window.
Type "netstat -a" (without the quotes).
Now start Warcraft and create a new LAN game (server).
Start a second cmd window, type "netstat -a".
The new server should now be visible as one or more "LISTENING" entries.
If not, Warcraft may not be working properly.

You may also have to create you game in a different way from when you create a game for the internet.
