Launcher stuck at "Checking for updates..."

When I open the launcher for World of Warcraft, it stays at "Checking for updates..." for about 5 minutes with no progress, then gives me an error. I have tried everything the support pages have said to do and still can't get past it. I was able to play after the Mists of Pandaria update, but then this problem occurred. I have also tried calling costumer support, but can get through as the lines are completely full.

You'd be best to ask over in Tech support.

Yes, I went to the settings and it was already enabled.

Then you'll want to work further with the Tech Support folks. I'd recommend calling them.

did you do a re-install lately or are trying to work it? try ctrl + alt + dlte then go to the processes take out agent and the launcher then keep trying you should have it working within a few times and work from that.

if that doesn't work i am sorry but that is what i did to get mine going.

I have the same issue and I really don't want to have to reinstall the whole thing, not good enough when they are making so much money from us.

Same here, it let me run the wow executable directly, but not from launcher. Stuck at checking for updates. It always launches 4 Agent.exe processes in task manager, then crashes.

Well, now when i click the executable (starting today) the launcher is trying to take over. Very frustrating...

I am on Windows 7 Ultimate, wonder if it's an OS issue (tried all the commonly listed things)
