Troubleshooting Network Connectivity Issues

Please follow the steps below to diagnose network connectivity issues within Steam:

  1. Check Steam Server Status, Please check the Steam Server Status page to ensure the issue which you are encountering is not related to system-wide downtime. If you encounter any timeout errors when attempting to access Steam sites, it is very likely that there is a system-wide issue and Steam will not be accessible until the issue is resolved.
  2. Test Your Router, The Using a Router with Steam topic includes steps to isolate problems if they occur at the router. Wireless and powerline connections can cause intermittent failures due to interference. If possible, test Steam with a direct wired connection to determine if this is a problem. An Internet speed test may also help you identify problems related to local link quality.
  3. Troubleshoot all Firewalls, See the Using a Firewall with Steam topic for instructions to test and configure your firewall for Steam. Note: If you are installing Steam for the first time or Steam has recently been updated, a firewall may be preventing Steam from connecting to the Steam Network – even if Steam worked correctly before the update was applied.
  4. Disable Background Applications, Review the Programs Which May Interfere With Steam and reconfigure, disable or uninstall any programs which may be preventing Steam and Valve games from connecting.
  5. Viruses, Trojans, Adware and Spyware, Scan your computer for Spyware, Malware, Adware, or Virus Interfering with Steam.

Basic Steam Troubleshooting

The following fixes will resolve most update and installation errors with Steam. They can be performed with a minimal amount of technical knowledge.

Restart Computer: It’s always a good first step to make sure that you restart Steam as well as your computer. Restarting the computer flushes all kinds of system states and caches, while resetting other programs and releasing locks on files and other resources.

Clear Download Cache: Clearing the Steam download cache will cause the Steam client to flush locally cached configuration data and acquire it from the Steam servers again. Navigate to your Steam -> Settings -> Downloads -> Clear Download Cache

Repair Library Folder: The Steam library folder contains all of your installed games on disk. These folders need to be writable by all users in order to update properly. Sometimes these user permissions break and need to be refreshed. Navigate to your Steam -> Settings -> Downloads -> Steam Library Folders -> Right click on folder -> Repair Folder

Verify Local Files: Sometimes files on hard-disks and other storage devices become corrupted because of bad hardware, software crashes, power surges etc. Steam can verify the correctness over installed game files and fix them if necessary. Find Game in Library -> Right click -> Properties -> Local Files -> Verify Integrity of Game Files

Change Download Region: The Steam content system is divided into geographical regions. The Steam client automatically detects its current region and uses content servers located in that region for best performance. Sometimes, servers in a specific region may be slow, overloaded or have a hardware failure causing download issues. It is advisable to temporarily switch to a different download region to use another set of content servers. Steam -> Settings -> Downloads -> Download Region. You may need to test several regions other than your own.

Reinstall Steam: The Steam installer can be downloaded here: ( and reinstalled to the same location where it is already installed. This may fix potential issues with Steam client and service files. Installing into same location will preserve all installed games. WARNING! Uninstalling Steam will delete all game content.

Move Game Folder: It can be very helpful to test the issue by installing on an alternate hard drive. If one is already available, you can create a new Steam library folder on this drive. You can then install new games into this Steam library folder or move already installed games there. Steam -> Settings -> Downloads -> Steam Library Folders -> Add new Library folder
