Currently doing a 3.89GB download
from Blizzard on my Alienware Area51 laptop for the game World of Warcraft; estimated time is 72 hours!This is very common and not just downloads from Blizz, also Windows updates etc.I have added the specified ports to Incoming and Outgoing TCP ports for both the Trusted and Internet Zones (3724, 6112, 6881-6999) but this has made no difference. The downloader is still
complaining that the laptop is behind a firewall.Blizzard do not recommend shutting down Firewall software as this can actually lockdown the computer even tighter. It is not feasible to add the Blizzard Downloaders, Updaters and Installers to the Programs list as a new one is created every time a connection is made; besides I thought that was the whole point of adding the ports?
