Anyway I started the launcher and it started downloading a 4.5gb update, from version 3.x to 4, the update finished in the traditional sense and I had a setup like installer updating my game, once that was done, I started the launcher again and now I'm on a Cataclysm like window "Cataclysm Launcher" and it says at top of my window "World of Warcraft v188.8.131.5211", there are 3 steps the downloader is supposed to go through but nothing is happening, it says at bottom "Total download remaining: 4.0 GB (0.0 KB/s)" and I can't click on the Play button.
The first time I starter the launcher the download remaining was 2.xGB and it looked as if there was traffic but for 2 hours the download remaining remained the same so I restarted the launcher and now nothing is happening.
Edit: After restarting the launcher several times it gave me an error and told me to try the repair tool, trying that now...
Edit 2: Ok after repairing it is downloading once again, I can't seem to delete threads on this new forum so you might hate me if you read the wall of text and then find out I solved the problem
I've never had this problem before so it can't be from my side.
My ISP is virgin media. Any other download from the internet is working at optimum speed. It's jus WoW thats messing up everything.
Here's a screenshot of my launcher showing the download + version: http://img338.imageshack.us/img338/1374/wowlauncher.jpg
Help please :)

I have decided to re-install WoW and then use the "xxxx.184.108.40.20691 updater exe file" to update my WoW to that version. And then i shud only have to download 1.gb worth of files to play WoW right? i'll report back if it helps.
However i seem to get stuck on 220.127.116.1129. I download with full capacity until i get to just that point and then i go down to 0.0kb/sec. Sometimes tho it stands 4.4gb/sec. which would make the game downloaded in 3 secs but well not everything is perfect right?
I have no problems with isp firewalls or anything else since i can download everything else just fine, and i doubt that anything will change after i get to download the first 6 gigs of wow or?
The Play button is still disabled.
