Blizzard's downloader...
...the one that uses BitTorrent?

It sucks. Like, it should be faster. But it isn't. 'course, it would help if I wasn't firewalled, but... Meh.

At least it's going between 10-40 KB/s. I still don't like the fact that they don't have an alternate download option though. 'cause that sucks.

dude universities like to block ports for bittorrent

checkout bittorrent 4 or bittornado, change the port to a legal windows port... ie 3389 (remote desktop default) and use bittorrent on that

Dude, I know.

But ours actually has a firewall that prevents all incoming connections that weren't initiated from our side. If legal ports worked, I would have done that a long time ago. Plus, because Blizzard sucks, you can't change the ports that they communicate on. You can't limit your upload/download speed.
