make sure you reverted your realmlist to connect on your foreign patch server.
Assuming you use the US client try to dl http://www.gamefront.com/files/21573605/Wow%2BLauncher_188.8.131.5254.rar , revert your realmlist and try the launcher to patch your client. Then stick to guide, and it'll work.

For me that was the key to, at last, to log in with my english client. Also i cleaned the addons folder and the Wtf folder. I don't suggest to do it, just for me worked. Now i have to find the way to get my ping below 500
