Default Re: WoW Downloader really slow?

Any descent router allows you to foward the needed ports.

My crappy dlink has 3 entries that look like this;

Blizzard Downloader 3724-3725 3724
Blizzard Downloader2 6112-6113 6112
Blizzard Downloader3 6881-6999 6881-6999

The first is the entree name, then the port range the router listens to on the internet side, and then the port range the router uses on the local network side.

Only the 3rd entree actually request that multi port span, the first 2 are actually only for one port, but my dlink requires a range of ports for entering in the WAN side so I picked 2 ports.
