Diablo® III

Game installer downloading ultra slow.

I started to download the installer yesterday and have been ex[eriencing extremely slow download speeds. Just wondering if anyone had any ideas to speed things up. Currently at the rate it's going I won't even have the game in time for release...

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

I think Blizzard's servers are getting hammered. This is why they suggested downloading the game last week.

Turn off Peer-to-Peer transfer. Boosted my speed a LOT!

Options/Download Preferences.

why did you wait until a week before launch? Good luck sir, some things are not best left to the will of procrastination.

I did two downloads since I got home from work. Both finished in under 2 hours.

Here is a thread in the tech support forums that might help your case:

Ive been downloading p2p all day at full throttle 6mb. p2p is a savior for games like this, except if something in your system/firewall/ISP is blocking it.

Wvwv is correct. Disabling automatically detect settings worked for me as well.

Same here. When my DL works I'm getting 50kb/s.

Besides that, it crashes every 20 minutes. Thanks a lot for releasing a broken game blizz.

This... this!! and this!!

I spend the entire day trying to download a 60MB patch. While I was at work, only 6MB was downloaded. After I restarted the installer, another 10MB came in the span of 2 hours.

There was no way possible a Blizzard and Akamai CDN servers could be this overloaded. After finding that topic and following the steps, I have downloaded the entire patch in under a minute, at the speeds I am normally used to getting, +1 Mb/s.

I am baffled by the fact that Blizzard choose to use IE and wininet.dll as their network interface, but they did. Every single network call is going through IE backbone. *sigh*
