After an update, steam won't let me log in/connect
I updated STEAM yesterday and now whenever I want to log in to my account, it says CONNECTION ERROR:
"It appears that you are not currently connected to the internet or that your internet connection is not configured correctly for Steam..."

I was able to connect and update without a problem before yesterday's update, but now it just won't let me :( I have tried everything... One solution would work (IE: reinstalling), but then when I restart PC, the same problem again.

I HAVE TRIED:
- clear cache
- ipconfig /clear dns technique
- uninstalling & reinstalling
- deleting all files in Steam folder except SteamApp
- creating a new account
- reboot pc
- restart modem

I have looked for a solution, nothing works. Once I restart PC, I get the same problem all over again. WHAT IS THE PROBLEM? :( PS: My internet is working fine.

-------------------------------------
EDIT #2: My steam is either stuck on STEAM LOGIN (after I entered my info and clicked LOGIN, it just stays there) or STEAM CONNECTING "USERNAME" ACCOUNT...
My server is in Australia.

you can't look it up on youtube just type 'how to portforward with [whatever router you have]'
or something like that.

Didn't work :(

Check this https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?s=fc22d499a5ecbdf6585bd76b56838ceb&ref=6057-YLBN-1660

Or Completely exit from the Steam client.
Go to C:\Program Files\Steam (or the Steam directory that was specified during installation).
Locate ClientRegistry.blob and rename this file to ClientRegistryOld.blob.
Restart Steam to allow the file to be recreated.
Test the issue once more.

Or even if this will not Work ,then Go to C:\Program Files\Steam (or the Steam directory that was specified during installation).
Locate steamerrorreporter.exe [ RUN the appication ]
Start Steam !
Test the issue once more.

The same thing is happening to a at least 12 of my other friends that have contacted me via Skype asking me if they can get onto Steam. I had to use Steampowered.com to enter this area AND its all in FINNISH language??? Was Steam hacked because I've read several posts that people have noticed their accounts have been accessed. Can Steam please let us know if it is indeed THEM having server issue??? PLEASE???? I can't really search too much because like I said the site is in Finnish and even with translate its not that great!

i found this for you

The Steam language setting determines which language the Steam client application displays, as well as the language which games are presented in. (Third-party titles may have their own language settings - these settings will generally be independent of the Steam language setting)
Log into your Steam account
Click the Steam menu in the top menu bar (this is the first option on the left at the top of the window)
Go to the Settings option
Go to the Interface tab
Select the language you wish to use from the drop-down menu
Click OK and then select the option to Restart Steam
Once Steam restarts, you will be able to use Steam and Valve games in the language which you selected.
If you have games installed that support the language you have selected, files for that language may need to be downloaded before you can play.

Thanks for the information, but it is not the issue. Actually its the steampowered.com (the net NOT the Steam client) that has the language problem ... the Steam Client I use to sign in and play games is telling me I do not have an internet connection and will not allow me to log on to play Coop games. Obviously I do NOT have a net problem as I am here, and I've already asked several other friends if they are experiencing the same and they are. I will not make changes to my system and screw it up when I'm certain its Steam itself. It is not a port issue, it is not my ISP blocking Steam, it is not my Router, it is Steam straight up.

I have also been getting Error 503 and 118 most of the day makeing it imposable to look at my profile make fourm posts most of the time or even browse the Steam store.
Caliber Nov 2, 2013 @ 9:53am 
Yeah I have been experiencing similar issues for the last couple of days.

Steam has been really, really wacky and a lot of my games are having issues as well.
Kizami z3r0 Nov 2, 2013 @ 9:56am 
Yeah I noticed that as well. Off and on for the past 4 or 5 days. Pretty minor errors now and again Not enough to drive me insaine. Untill now where i pretty much can hardly use steam.
