You can get the message even if you have the ports open. As long as the patch is downloading just ignore it. it may sit in the same spot for a bit but its still transferring. I've never noticed a difference in speed. It will take quite a while for a new install to patch. I'd leave it for a few hours.

your computer simply may not be able to play world of warcraft anymore. you may need to splurge and buy a more game-intensive computer, or upgrade the video card. good brands to look for are anything ati and nvidia.

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)

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.

I cant down loader a online game world of woarcraft patch my fire wall stops it


What firewall do you have?
They all have options to configure. You could allow the patch utility access.
Another way to do this is by downloading the patch manually from Blizzard's site. (I hope you don't need a link to find it)

I hope this helps,
Yannick.

Netgear WGR614v7 Wireless Router


I have yet to be on a computer that does not say i am behind a firewall when i run the wow installer. I never use it anymore, as it downloads reaally slow. If you go to worldofwarcraft.com, on the left side menu you will see technical support toward the bottom, click on that, then look for "trouble downloading patches" over on the right, not sure if thats exactly what its called, but close to it. when you go to that, you will see a link to wow patch mirrors (you may just be able to search the website for patch mirrors) once on that page, find the patch you need and download it, save it to your wow folder, when it is done you will need to double click it and it will install. Much faster this way!

World of Warcraft Patch problem


Try these two solutions -

Try to move the World of Warcraft folder back to where it was originally installed and run the patch.

Or try this -
1. go to Macintosh HD => Users => Shared => Blizzard: delete the .plist file inside
2. launch the World of Warcraft game and let the patch go through again, download/patch

Good luck.

World of Warcraft


Sounds like you need to do some port forwarding.

World of Warcraft communicates on port 3724 with the TCP protocol. The patching process requires port 3724, 6112, and 6881-6999. Once again to download the patches for World of Warcraft you should forward the following ports.

3724 TCP6112 TCP6881-6999 TCP

If you can not forward ranges of ports and are only planning on having one computer playing WoW, just forward ports 3724 TCP and 6112 TCP. The 6881-6999 port range is mainly used where multiple computers on a network may be trying to play WoW at the same time.

Ventrilo: From their web site: Click on the "Port number" input box and enter the servers port number. The program will automatically display the default port number of 3784 but you can change this to what ever the server needs it to be.

So forward 3784 or the port number you chose.

http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Motorola/SBG900/SBG900index.htm for a walk through on how to do the forwarding.

Hope that helps!
