Biolink won't be able to do much if the weakest link in the chain is your ISP. Your best bet is to download the patch 3rd party, it's what I had to do when I was away from home and wanted to play SWG in my down time.
You will know pain. You will know suffering.

hidemynet.com for me is the best most reliable proxy service out there. It's not free, but man is it worth the 6 bucks a month. Easy to set up, great speeds and quick customer support.

Hi Deployed Soldier,

My guess you are sitting in Camp Bondsteel Coffee shop with a Makiato in one hand and a mouse in the other trying to do this. Been there myself with WoW. While I was deployed to Kosovo at the time lots of us were playing WoW on our downtime, but my point is even with the crappy net service the locals provide you should be able to download the game and patch fine. This might take longer than normal but you shouldn't have any issues doing it normally. We never had an issue with WoW other than the repeated disconnects from the network nor did we have to use a proxy server that I'am aware of. I don't understand why this would be different with SWTOR.

A good tip is move as close as possible to the wireless tower that sends your signal because I know some of those huts/bunkers get poor signal up on the hill further out from the main chowhall.

Good luck to you and sorry if I wasn't much help, but all these tips helped me when I was trying to do the gaming thing while keeping in touch with the family. Last resort we had some soldiers have their family express mail them the game downloaded to a drive of some sort fully patched and ready to go.

P.S. If you have family, have the local in the PX that does the hand chalk drawings do something for you; you won't regret it. My wife loved it so much she framed it and it still hangs on our wall almost 5 years later. Take care, be safe.

i don't think that it will work through the browser settings. i need to be able to use a proxy for the Launcher to redirect and DL the patches. The Launcher does not go through the browser.
