Hello, I've been having the same problem wednesday with 4.0.6 but I managed to get the patch at a friends house.
My server just got downed for an update and I have the same problem again. So how do I fix this?
My firewall is disabled, WoW & Launcher are allowed to run...
I checked my internet settings.
Can you go into Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet Options> Connections> LAN settings and make sure that you Select Automatically Detect settings.
And make sure that you haveUse Automatic configuration Script and Use a Proxy server not checked.
I've tried what you suggested with Internet Explorer and it's made no difference, I'm still getting the problem.
A guide to rebooting into this mode is here:
set realmlist eu.logon.worldofwarcraft.com
set patchlist enGB.patch.battle.net:1119/patch
set realmlistbn ""
set portal eu
I tried switching off my firewall and running the repair but it still came up saying
"failed to download patch information. Check network connections"
surely if the repair tool is able to run as it states "This program requires an active internet connection" then the game is able to connect to the internet??
Sometimes i have to use the repair function too.
I suggest if you have not already tried it you dissable any firewall you have
