This worked 100% for me. Went from 20bytes/sec to 2.16MB/sec. Thanks!
Ok I have tried almost every fix for every problem on these boards and still cannot get this to update right. Run the installer and it gets to about 23% then slows down to under 1kb a sec most of the time under 100bytes, and often stops and down loads nothing for minutes at a time. There is no way this game is ever going to finish the last 6 gigs of the first update at 24bytes a sec!!!! please can we get a blue to respond? I'm not the only one this is happening to and would like to play the game at some point this month.
It was DEFINITELY the port-forwarding that was getting me. Look to the blue comment and forward ports 1119 and 6881-6999.
When I did it I got an error message from the downloader saying it couldn't find some files. I restarted my PC and boom, downloading at 2 MB/s.
DO THIS. DEFINITELY IMPORTANT.
Even if you can torrent other stuff these ports are for Diablo 3 P2P specifically.
I am having thsi same problem. i have 2 computers in my house and I have tried installing the game on both for trouble shooting. computer 1 stalls at updating setup files (wait around 30 minutes to an hour) when it finally passes, it downloads at 8kbs
computer 2, flies through updating setup files, under 10 seconds, and downloads the game in about 3 to four hours.
main problem is computer 2 sucks.
both computers are on the same wireless network and i have tried every fix i can find online for computer 1. adjusted all firewalls.
the only program that could block it is super anti spyware, but i dont think that blocks programs out
In order to resolve this issue, I had to do the following:
Good catch. Immediately fixed the problem. Thank you
I'm also interested in learning what it is about this setting that affects the Diablo downloader specifically. I've been using the WoW Downloader for years with the default "Auto-detect settings" setting in Windows and never had a problem. But for some reason the Diablo downloader, which supposedly uses the same general code, hits an issue with that setting? Bizarre.
I had the same problem as most everyone else here (17 k/sec in my case), and unchecking the setting immediately fixed it for me.
Also, it's worth pointing out that it's not physically possible to forward or trigger on port 6881 on my router (NETGEAR WNDR3800) because that port is being used by uPnP. (At least, that's what the router reports when I try to set it up.)
