Strange network behavior
I'm running Steam on OS X 10.8.3 and am seeing some strange networking issues. Namely, I get the "Could not connect to Steam network, bla bla bla" error message. When I run a packet capture, it looks like the Steam client is trying to connect through my home router, even though I am not on my home network. This is not an OS setting, because no other application is exhibiting this kind of behavior. I have run day-long packet captures and done everything my Mac is capable of doing, and the only time I see my home router's address is when I attempt to use the Steam client. I have removed the application, deleted ~/Library/Application Support/Steam completely and reinstalled the Steam client, but to no avail. Anyone have any ideas where else I might look for a hardcoded router address that Steam is using? Please and thank you!
