Battlenet app not download : failed - network error

Mac Technical Support
Blizzard app setup/installer slow downloading or not downloading for mac (failed - network error)
Hey there! The Failed - Network error is usually a connection related error on the Chrome browser. This can be anywhere from security applications or firewall blocking the download, or a connection routing issue to the install servers. Does this happen on a different browser and/or a different connection?

If it does continue, let's gather a traceroute test to the IP address: us.patch.battle.net
Same happening here. I'm using Firefox.
hey folks, i was experiencing the same issue -- the battle net app download was failing with "network error" after a handful of seconds

i found a simple solution that worked for me

in the downloads page url, i replaced the language code "en-us" with "en-gb", and the resulting download button pointed to a european server that worked instead of the broken american one

DOWNLOAD SUCCEEDED ON THIS LINK

of course, your situation could be reverse -- in a quick experiment, i found the blizzard website only supports "en-gb" and "en-us" language codes
