When I start the blizzard downloader it says that the download has no problems but when I close it and run it again it says that it appears to be behind a firewall. I've already gone as far as disabling my firewall altogether and it still does not work. I've also done the port forwarding thing with my router and I have a static ip and it still shows up.
Perhaps your ISP's firewall is blocking it? They shouldn't be, but everyone makes mistakes.
nope they don't, only when i shut off the windows firewall completely did the blizzard downloader stop saying that i had a firewall.
