    Why does WOW think I'm firewalled?

    I say 'I' loosely, its actually my friend, he's just picked up a factory overclocked machine from OCuk.

    https://www.overclockers.co.uk/showp...odid=FS-108-OK

    Hes just hooked it up to his Belkin wireless router (by Ethernet) and with all firewalls off, and all ports open on the router, why would it say its behind a firewall and restrict his download speed massivley?

    His Alienware laptop doesn't have the same problem wirelessly, so any ideas what he can look at?
