Content Servers Unreachable
I hate to re-tread old ground, but as a new Steam user, I have this issue (An error occurred while installing Football Manager 2013 (Content servers unreachable)) with downloading my first purchased game (bought a couple of days ago). I've tried all the bits in the network connectivity troubleshoot, the 3rd party port-test thing says my ports are fine for Steam, I've tried changing download region and un/re-installing, all without any success... any other ideas that might work?

I can only download games that contain the Source Engine
I have the same problem, nothing I've tried has done any good

Yep, same problem here too. The games I am trying to install already has the files in the steamapps folder too! Pretty frustrating. Changing region and reinstalling client have not fixed the problem.

My friend off the same internet connection has installed games in the last few days also....mega gay.

I asked Valve and they said delete everything in the steam folder except the folders SteamApps and userdata and you need to keep steam.exe . Once you deleted everything except those, restart your computer and click steam.exe

I ended up reinstalling Windows to solve a seperate issue, and for some reason it started working. I presume the virus that had suddenly started attacking me had been preventing Steam from downloading whilst in hiding?

I recently resolved my issue. I don't know how this was the fix, but changing my default browser from firefox to IE strange.

Hey I use Firefox and it was working fine so I assumed the problem was Steam. The I tried IE to try the above fix (I had 8 because I never use it so never updated it) and it wasn't working. I followed up on the error message I saw on IE 8 and found out I had to go into IE 8 and reset it (tools, internet options, advanced, press reset) and that fixed the problem. See this article:

I have found out how! Look up how to get to uninstall programs or programs and features in control panel. Next find something called steam content server limiter. Then uninstall it. go into steam and click steam in the top left corner. Press Exit. Next open steam back up and it should be fixed! If you have any questions, feel free to ask me!

I went on Chrome > Settings > Show Advanced Settings > Change Proxy Settings > LAN settings > (Make sure to tick "Automatically detect settings" and to untick "Use a proxy server for your LAN" ) ... Once this is done close steam and restart it and you should be able to download. It worked for me!

Just reminding people that the original question is nearly 2 years old, and may have been fixed.

If your proxy server doesnt work on google chrome then go to google menu and then goto the settings and press show advanced settings and press change proxy settings and press LAN Settings and uncheck use proxy server for LAN
