So I finally gave in to the pressure and started playing World of Warcraft a few weeks ago...
I'm enjoying it so far, and running it in Wine is giving me absolutely no problems other than the sound (very) occasionally acting up. Overall it runs very smoothly and it's as though I'm running it natively in Windows, which makes me quite happy.
Today, though, I'm trying to apply the newest updates and the download just seems to be horrendously slow. Initially installing the game and all the updates for the very first time was slow too, but certainly not this slow. I've been downloading for over an hour now and I've only managed to download about 31 of the 276 MB. Furthermore, the downloader tells me "You appear to be behind a firewall", but I don't think I set up a firewall.
So my question is, is there something I can do to speed up the download, or a setting somewhere that will speed it up? Or is this normal and something I'll have to get used to? I'm new to WoW so I don't know, maybe the downloads are always this slow I'm using Kubuntu Dapper, in case that matters.
