Issue Report: Unable to download Steam.deb
In around 15-20 attempts of downloading the client I'm getting stopped anywhere between 3.9 and 5.0 MB on the client. Thus, I am unable to install the client.

I've attempted downloads in Win8 with Pale Moon, Ubuntu 12.10, and Mint 14 Cinnamon. I can download anything else I want from anywhere else (including game updates through Windows Steam).

I am on a WISP. I do not know if my connection jitter may play a role in this problem. If any further information would be useful I'd be happy to provide it.

Tracing route to valve.vo.llnwd.net [208.111.160.6]

Trace complete.

<EDIT>
I have attempted to download the client an additional 25 times since I originally posted this. I've received varying amounts of the file between 1.8 MB and 5.1 MB.

If you have firefox, try using the plugin downthemall, its a download manager, might work.

I still can't download it directly. I did install downthemall and it also stopped downloading at 4.8 MB. I was, however, able to pause and then restart from there.

I really shouldn't have to use a download manager for this. There is definitely a problem with something on the CDN server. I don't have any problems anywhere else.
