Ok first of this isn't for people who have slow internet altogether, this is for people who try downloading the installer and patches but are finding download speeds well below there average or not even downloading at all.

It might not work for everyones problems but I had problems on both my computers were it would start downloading at normal speed but would slowly get slower and slower until it would stop altogether and it fixed them.

The LoL Launcher is pretty much a custom web-page and downloads from the site Riot uses and it can conflict with browsers that are your default. Not sure while it causes problems but if you set your default browser to Internet Explorer it seems to fix some problems.

For me I had problems with Chrome but i haven't tried Mozilla so it might take some tinkering.


Again just suggesting a fix that might work for some people.
