Re: constant DC when trying to download

That is because of the DC's. Same thing happens to me when there's some moisture in the air (read: rain shower) and my connection is up and down. Every time the connection resets you get a new IP address from the DHCP, and when you try to connect to Blizzard's servers they see that different address and ask you to authenticate again to ensure that it isn't someone from a different location trying to access your account.

On the bright side their authentication system does keep track of IP's you've successfully authenticated from, although I kind of doubt they will keep a record of all the 254 addresses in your subnet lol
