re intall the game does not work for me same problem
I just did reinstall the game. The launcher says my game is 'playable' and I tried to log in but got this same error message. What prompted the reinstall in the first place was an error message after entering my password that wasn't letting me in, despite my roommate being able to log in with the same connection and similar computer.
yep same for me sure would like to know how to fix it
Same here bro was playin problem free eysterday, but havent even been able to launch today..PLEEEAAASEEE HELP
Well, I called Blizzard Tech Support. We ran my computer in safe-mode, but that didn't fix anything. They're thinking it's an issue with the modem/router, especially the 2Wire that I've got. Does anyone know anything about that? And also, is this happening to anyone who's launcher is at 'playable' but not completely downloaded?
Can you post the full error message? It might have a clue on why it can't stream a file.

The full error message that I get is a little white box that pops up and says "Cannot stream required archive files. Please check network connection." My options are an 'okay' box or the red 'x'. Hitting either of those closes wow completely.

I'm not sure what it means by network connection, because my roommate with the same internet connection was able to download the patch and play without a hitch. Also, the launcher will run just fine, it's when I click play that I get that message.
I turned off my firewall and it works now. >>

But will I have to always play with the firewall off?

Im having this problem too. It was just sudden. One minute I can paly, then the next I couldnt. I remember I turned off my firewall during that period which is weird, because its the opposite reaction. (Just a normal windows firewall)
Yeah same here it says it is playable and does nothing after then then gives me the Archive message
Anyone got a full error report of that error ? Or a screenshot ?
