It's always been like that for me. Best solution is to go to your desktop shortcut and add

"C:/folder/folder/GW.exe" -image

That will download the entire game for you in one go, will take 8-12 hours or so but you can do it overnight. That way at least the crappy DL speeds won't affect your gameplay much.

Saying it takes 8-12 hours isnt exactly true, it maybe took you 8-12 hours, i had to do an -image for my laptop recently, and it took me 3 hours to download all 3.4Gb of it.

Lucky you, but in my experience it takes 8-12 because the downloader is crappy. Regardless of my actual connection speed.
