So I downloaded the trial versian of WoW at like 2:30 AM last night. I was so tired I just pressed install, saw the install started then went to bed. This morning I woke up with it apparently installed but everytime I would click it would just say "No Internet Connection". I uninstalled it and downloaded it again, and now it won't even install. When I click the icon to install it says "Unable to Connect: Please check internet connection and Firewall settings". I checked my firewall and it says that it approves of everything Blizzard. My internet connection is obviously fine. Any help?

Welcome to Blizzard patching. 
In your folders there is a  'Repair.exe", try running that?
Otherwise, I can't help you. But I can say that Blizzard patching is the worst ever.

@CowMuffins: I don't think the repair thing is there until you install the actual game, which I'm unable to do! Thanks for the help though.

This is probably not helpful at this point but I had a problem downloading Star Craft 2 when it came out. Anyway, I would check  internet settings on the Blizzard patcher or WOW to not use the torrent method. I have much better performance just downloading directly.  
That's my best guess.
