Alot of people are struggling with the updater and are having issues with their download speeds. So here is a quick guide that may help you.

1. Setting up your Router.

- Make sure you open or forward the following ports.

UDP
  • 80

  • UDP
  • 443

  • TCP
  • 55296 - 55551


  • 2. Turning off anything you dont need during Update.

    - Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > Run
    - type in msconfig

  • Services Tab
  • - tick [hide all microsoft services]
    - Then untick any services in the list which arent in use.

  • Startup Tab
  • - untick everything, unless your on a laptop or using wireless connections.
    - if your using wireless or a laptop dont untick any of your laptops key programs like pointing devices etc, or your wireless device.

    This will reduce the chances of background programs which may be using the internet interfering with your downloads.

    Once your done you can repeat Step 2 and turn everything back on, if you so wish.


    3. Turn off UAC in Control Panel > User Accounts

  • - As the title says go to Control Panel > User Accounts.
  • - Select your account and there is an option saying 'Change' or 'Disable' User Account Control.
  • - You want to turn this off, it will stop your PC asking you when and what to install.


  • 4. Try: Running the Updater as Administrator.

  • - Right Click the Shortcut to the Updater and select Run as Administrator.


  • 5. Make sure UPnP is enabled.

  • - Enable this in your Router Settings, if you dont know how google it.
  • - Enable this in the Updater Settings, go to C:\Program Files\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Version\ffxivconfig.exe.
  • - Select General and the first page that displays has it listed there, set it to USE or AUTOMATIC which ever works best for you.


  • 6. Using a torrent downloader rather than the offical updater.

    NOTE: THIS WORKS, MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW IT TO THE LETTER, AND IF YOUR NOT 100% THEN ASK.

    DISCLAIMER: IF YOUR UNSURE ABOUT ANYTHING YOU SEE HERE THEN DO NOT ATTEMPT IT.
