Launcher problem

90 Undead Priest
Hello guys. Today when i started wow launcher, I got this error:

Failed to download information about the next patch. Check your network connection.

My connection is obviously fine, and the game itself worked perfectly well just yesterday.
Only thing different is that i'm on another wireless network atm.

Any tips, suggestions?

P.S.: Direct launch doesn't work either.

Hi there,

Can you make sure that you're running the game as an Administrator?

If you're on Windows Vista or 7, you can just right click on the shortcut to the game and choose Run as Admin and see if that makes any difference.

If that doesn't help, 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 have all set as mentioned above. I tried to launch directly as admin and got this error:
