When I bring up the Blizzard Downloader to download and install Diablo 3 prerelease, it simply does nothing. It sits there at download rate: 0 KB/sec
Please help!

Had a similar problem. Finally managed to fix it. Here's how, though it sounds absurd. Who coded this stupid downloader?

My fix came from a reddit post, telling me to turn of 'automatically detect settings' in Internet Explorer's connection settings. I never use IE (never have on this install of Windows, at all), yet somehow, with the blizz downloader running in the background, unchecking that one box went from 0kbps to maxing out my bandwidth in a couple seconds.

Talk about crap software design! But if you're having issues with the downloader, do this, and it just might fix it.
