    Cool quick wow patch download

    so your sycked for the new wrath of the lynch king right? so you start the patch update, and zmog.....8 hours download time......
    your probally thinking wtf, i was. 8 hours is a long time, a really really long time, hell i could probally out post hendicus if i posted for 8 hours. :grin:

    so naturally i was looking for ways to cheat the system into letting me download faster, and i found one.
    steps:
    have the blizzard downloader started downloading
    go to view and click connenction info
    notice your download rate, its probally less than 130kbs which isnt so good
    close the connection info window
    back on blizz downlaoder click on view agian and slect prefernces
    you should have two options, throttle download or enable/disable peer to peer downloaeding
    uncheck peer to peer downloading
    now back on blizz downloader it will probally say note: peer to peer is disabled, which is fine
    now go back to connection info, and look at your speed
    my speed was alot higher, which means i get to play on the patch quicker, becasue i am downloading direct form the blizz server.
    ive hit 420kbs, but that was at night on a tuesday, this (271kbs) was 4:00 pm on thursday

    Don't do it all the time when you are downloading a patch. This method will only help you if you are downloading on off hours or are downloading long after the patch came out (such as someone re-installing wow and all patches)

    i know it doesnt seed, but why not do this all the time? i was doing this in the middle of the day and it always seems to be the same speed.
    also, wotlk isnt supposed to be out, and yet i can connect and download derictly form a blizz server :grin: so its good at any time.
