From a casual glance, it may look like the World of Warcraft is either down, broken.

You might even think your computer has a problem.

See the photo gallery.

If you play World of Warcraft, you could be getting the following error: “Launcher cannot obtain patching information. Please check your Internet configuration.”

People started reporting this problem on the morning of January 11th.

You could have an Internet configuration, but if you have been playing the WOW Cataclysm and have not messed around with your Internet config, that is probably not the cause.

Strollerderby says: Before you restart your computer, successfully download the new patch, and continue playing, consider this — is World of Warcraft a safe game for kids to be playing anyway?

Reviews of Electronics tells of one possible fix:

* Please remove any custom proxy settings.
* Go into Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet Options> Connections> LAN settings and make sure that you Select Automatically Detect settings.
* And make sure that you have Use Automatic configuration Script and Use a Proxy server not checked.
* If this doesn’t work, renewing your IP address and flushing your DNS cache can often help resolve connection issues.

WOW Stability offers another fix: When I got into wow, the news said there is indeed a problem when logging in. Until this gets fixed, just click inside wow.exe file.

Another reason could be that the WOW web site may be updating its information and you just happened to catch it at the wrong time.

Still another problem may be that you need to download a WOW patch.

A lot of people have been scratching their heads on this and a lot of bloggers have been writing about what to do to either solve or find a work-around the problem.

You might want to try this: Click on the wow.exe program instead of using the launcher. This work-around was published by WOW Stability. You can visit that web site in the link above.
