    Hey folks,

    I play World of Warcraft and I'm having a problem when downloading the patches. It keeps telling me I'm behind a firewall or the tracker is down, so the downloads are extremely long. This never used to be a problem.

    Did M$ put out a new patch/update that blocks this traffic? I went to www.portforward.com and followed all the instructions for the netgear WGR614v6 (I had done this a while ago and all the proper settings are in there). I port forwarded my router before and it was setup correctly and working fine.

    All of a sudden, I'm having these problems. Any one got an idea?

    PS, my regular internet DL's run between 50kb/s up to 350kb/s depending on the server.

    I have WinXP with SP2 (not pirated!!!) and don't have the firewall on. I never have run it and I've never had a problem (virus, etc).

    It's not a hardware problem, its gotta be software, but I don't know whats causing it.

    Thanks in advance!
