I trust you have an active account? Have you tried searching Blizzard Entertainment's support on WOW for any help? They might have a support document with your issue.

Do you have any anti-virus programs that could possibly be firewalling you, rendering you unable to connect? Also, are you sure that your account is up and running like it should be?

In that case your issue is simple. Your router is blocking the ports you need to have open. See this link for more details, and if you have any questions, ask us. http://www.blizzard....ow/?id=aww0790p

I have Firefox and WoW and they work fine. Firefox is just a browser, just a better "version" of IE. It wouldn't have an effect on how you connect to the internet.

Do you have any programs running in the background? And how long do you wait before you give up (and stop trying to connect)?

Well if your only waiting a minute, there's not guarentee that you're not just being impatient. Let it run for about 15-30 minutes max and if nothing happens then it's an internet problem.

Report back after waiting.
