The League of Legends launcher uses server aliases that have problems connecting to some ISP default DNS servers. If your launcher never seems to start downloading a patch, you may want to change to public DNS servers in your network settings. Most often, this only applies to players outside of the US.

WARNING: Changing these settings can cause problems with your internet connection if you have specified network configurations for another purpose. Be prepared to revert to your old settings; save any information you are about to change.
