try this
1. uninstall steam (be sure to copy first your games but if the internet is not a problem then go ahead and uninstall it)
2. before installing steam again, follow this step:
a. open control panel by typing it on start
b. go to internet options -> connections -> LAN settings
c. Make sure that in Automatic Configuration the Automatically detect settings box stays UNCHECKED.
3.Install steam

enjoy :)

Steam needs to be online to update, Please check your network connection and try again
Problem is, Internet is working for every other things except steam. F.Y.I Firewall and compability doesn't work as I tried it and I'm on Windows 10 Home. Tried deleting Steam and reinstalling but it doesn't work too.
Thanks
