Do you have BF3 downloaded on Origin and ready to go? Don’t want to wait for the official release date? Do the following and you can play it now!
Load up Origin and do the following BEFORE hitting the play button:
On Windows 7 go to:
- Control Panel
- Choose small icons as your view
- click Internet Options
- click on the Connections tab
- click on the Lan Settings button
- under Proxy Server tick the box and enter the ip 126.96.36.199 and port 8080

Now load up BF3 and the game should run the usual release date check. With any luck it’ll work and battlelog will start to load in your browser.
