... glad it worked for you too! I suggest that everyone that fits the System Requirements who is experiencing high World Server latency at least give it a try. It has an uninstall VBS Script that you can run if it doesn't work for you, but it seems to be a significant reduction in ping times.
Hey ... it's worth a shot!
How It Works
idk if this problem happens to me, but i feel more problems when i go to arenas, idk why, but there my world latency dont change on number, but take more time to cast spells and take effects. And i feel more problems from mid of February to today.
This Saturday and last Saturday, had runs on Terenas 9 ST (11 Eastern), D/C and high latencies (5,000 to 7,000ms) causing "You have been disconnected from the server" and cannot find instance server.
Vent, ping, web sites all nominal. Just connection to Blizzard instance servers, and other toons in cities.
Removed addons, WTF, Interface, repaired - no difference.
Guildies in other parts of US had no issues - I was the only one, and only one coming from Comcast Boston.
Played steadily various times this week, no issues except my Saturday night guild runs resulting in my stranding the group without a healer 2 weeks in a row.
Tracert apparently stalling in AT&T - been playing for years and this is first time.
Blizzard, this is a potential deal-breaker.
Internet has been dropping out ONLY when I play wow, When I play wow it makes it impossible for everyone else in the house to connect, when they try, I disconnect and go without internet connection for a while, You reckon it is because I am using wireless internet?

I, too, have had severe issues with lag these past 2 weeks. I've run speedtest.net many times (download speed 10-25 MBPS, upload speed usually mid-1's), and do not believe it is my overall internet connection. 2 weeks ago when this first started I'd have a several-minute lag spike every several minutes; this weekend it's constant lag, slowing my FPS to 3 when I'm normally playing at 30-50. The game tells me I've got a home latency of mid-teens, and a world latency of mid-hundreds, putting me in the "green" zone, but it's certainly behaving significantly worse. I can't even move my toon to where I want right now. I've talked to my ISP, updated my video card driver (nVidia GeForce 9400 GT), run a number of antivirus/antimalware programs and system optimizers, and I'm lost as to the next step. My computer runs Windows XP, and my CPU is an Intel Core2 Duo 2.2Ghz, with 3 GBs of RAM. I'm aware that my system is old, but it's been completely fine running WoW until these past 2 weeks. I would very much appreciate a more detailed blue post, as right now I'm completely unable to play.

Quoting for absolute truth. Don't be scared to try it; it worked for me, and I never thought I would need it.
I was ignorant of this problem till today when World Latency hit me for a ton of bricks. While my home latency would spike upwards to tops, 310 ms, World Latency would go critical past 1000 and the worst was at 1900ms.
Thinking that my terrible ISP was to blame, I reset my router, modem, refreshed/renewed my IP address and tried again. Same issue.
Tonight it affected quite a few of my guildies resulting in unnecessary wipes due to unplayable lag time.
An hour later, my roommate also playing WoW on my server experienced the same World side lag.
Speedtest.net was clocking us at normal speeds 7.56ish average, meaning our ISP was preforming well.
I hope this problem is resolved soon, you simply can't raid/instance with that kind of lag. I found out also that you can't really fish either :(
If you were infront of me i'd buy you a drink, That fixed my latency, Thanks :)
I have leatrix fix and my ms is allways low problem is when i enter arena , bg's and instances I get a noticable lag. my ms still reads 50-70ms but it feels more like 300-400 ms I have done all the fixes opened ports and also turned off all the checksum for nic card followed all the guides I can find and nothing fixes this could a blue please explain if this is being looked at .
6 weeks or so for me now. even had my telecommunications provider come over and test all my connections and lines to the exchange, WoW is only issue i have. Played WoW for over 4 years now and getting so frustrated with this latency (regularly spikes over 2k), thinking of moving on to something different. I dont mind issues for 24 hours or so as i understand things happen but over 6 weeks of this crap is ridiculous.
I am also having these problems. My latency has been reaching 8k ( world ) AND ! ( home ).
I am not sure if it is because I am use a wireless PCI card which connects to the router in my living room or not. MY internet randomly cuts out ESP when playing WoW. I've tried to open ports, reset routers and modems, and yet nothing has worked. MY friend also uses a wireless PCI card, but has neither of these problems when playing WoW.
