90 Blood Elf Death Knight
ok after trying all the dns changes and none worked i was a very angry male untill .. i found the one that works and very easy to do

*press windows key + R
*type in ncpa.cpl then enter
*find your connection and right click and click properties
*find internet protocol v4 highlight it and click properties
*click the use following dns server addresses
*on the first line type in
*click verify on exit and close it

i then deleted the and blizzard entertainment folders

the last step i did was

*Press windows + R and type in cmd and press enter

then type each as follows once everything clears

*ipconfig /release
*ipconfig /renew
*ipconfig /flushdns

if you cant follow these steps or get stuck changing the Dns here is the youtube link that i followed ..

Good Luck and hope this fix works for some of you out there

Where are these located ? Putting the locations where these are found would improve your instructions.

Did all of the above and no luck, so no this is not a fix.

I'm on Windows 8, just formatted and upgraded, don't know if it has anything to do with that.

No luck for me either, tried 2 PC's. Follow the instruction above and still no luck. Both PC's windows 7

I'm getting this after having 9 responses for trying to fix static noise in-game since 4.0.3, now this stupid error :|
85 Undead Warrior
Scratch that, works fine now, thanks!

Although I would advise caution in using a public DNS - it's probably safer for most people to wait until a hotfix :)

Got mine to work. Unsubscribed and 2 minutes later I'm on LOL
That didn't work for me either

Changing all DNS queries to a google public dns server is not a solution.

The DNS propagation of name and IP addresses is not broken, if it was the internet would not function as we know it.

A late change of IP address without allowing for DNS propagation and releasing an update that requires DNS resolution is bad form.

When will this be fixed Blizzard ?
90 Blood Elf Death Knight
its basically a hidden folder .. so just check show hidden folders .. should be located in program data ..

and like i said its a fix for some people .. where ive tried other dns servers and none worked but this worked for me and for some other people obviously .

its just a temp fix till blizz sorts out this mess ><
