    Updating FINAL FANTASY XI. Please wait.

    I've been at this for 3 days now. I have a pretty fast internet connection, but, it's taking like 10 minutes to download 1 file. And then after it downloads a few files (and gets from 0% overall to about 2% overall) it disconnects, and then it has to check all 10453 files again before it can start downloading again so it can get the next 2% done before it disconnects again...

    In 3 days I think the download is about 20% finished.

    So... anyone have any idea why it's doing this or how to fix it?

    that happens to me on updates. which is usually just caused by too many people trying to download them at the same time.

    doesn't seem to be your problem though, it's probably some other kind of connection issue.

    it's taking about 15-20 minutes to check the files. then it downloads for about 15-20 minutes (and gets about 2-3 files in that time, and I know the files are only like 5mb or so which should take less than 1 minute) and then after it downloads about 3 files it stops and has to check again. I've tried rebooting (twice) and nothing changes it. It's going to take me literally 2 weeks to finish at this rate... wtf?

    you're just gonna have to wait it out =\ nothing wrong with your connection. I think the servers are in japan.

    When they applied that big patch (the 'nerf' patch) i left the download for 5hrs and came back to this.

    left it overnight and woke up @ 1116/3925. Each file was downloading at 16kb/sec.

    Home, not school nothing like downloading a 2hr movie in under 5min. i suggest you start downloading demo's to kill time or check out vcdquality.com and check out the new releases.

    I'll see how it goes when I go home. I'm still at school and didn't start the update before I left (since I was already late). All the previous updates went well for me. I hope I don't have any troubles. =x

    btw, this is a traceroute to the server my other computer is downloading the update/patch from

    You'd think it wouldn't be so much trouble to at least have 1 server in this continent to host updates from...
