Could not connect to Steam network.
I've not been able to log into steam for some time.. After about a week of not getting in, I just quit playing the games in Steam, thinking they had issues and would eventually get them fixed. That was 6 months ago and when I log into the client I still get the Exact same error.

Steam - Error
Could not connect to Steam network.
This could be due to a problem with your internet connection, or with th...
Steam network. Please visit www.steampowered.com for more info.

Obviously it's not my internet as I can log into this forum just fine. What is wrong with Steam?

I get that error every time I put my password in wrong, aperently you can log in via a web blrowser so i woul try a quick reinstall of steam as that seems to fix a lot oof errors for people, just drag and drop the app in to the aplication folder and chose replace file. all your game data should be fine but after 6 months expect a bunch of things to want to update.

Having the same problem right now... Seeing if there are any suggestions or help there are on the forums. Apparently this is posted recently and there are no help.

Give it 5 minutes? I gave it 6 months.

I'm pretty sure the uninstall will happen, not sure the reinstall will. I'm a big gamer, have been most my life and it's sad, because I've never had a good experience with Steam. I've had games I purchased from the store, that required steam, and even though I have an account, steam will not let me log in with that game. I've lost money because of Steam. I've picked up games that mention Steam on the cover and I didn't even purchase it, because of my experience with this software. I figured if I purchased games through Steam maybe it will work better, which a few of the games did, until this occured. That was mainly on PC, but I'm running a Mac now and still having the same issues. Tells me the software developers for this software suck at their job. As a 20+ years of software developer myself, I find it hard to believe a client app that that allows people to purchase and download games is really that damn hard.

However, I just noticed when I launched Steam today, it did an update on the software. Now updates are coming for the game, so maybe they finally fixed what ever the issue was and I'll get to play some of my older games I've not touched in the last 6 months.

After all these months, they download a patch for me and it works.. What an idea!! I'm back on until it breaks down again.

What you got to do is reinstall steam at the cost of having to reinstall your games as well...

Reinstallingsteam will not uninstall your games, you justhave to rag and drop steam from the DMG into your applications folder and chose replace file.
