Ok so I beat limbo then go to play some dota 2. I try to spectate a friends game doesn't work it won't load it. Ok fine whatever there game probably ended or whatever. I search for a match find one click accept just sits on the loading screen until eventually it says unable to connect to the server. I restart dota. Still won't join that match. Ok I search for a new game. Same thing.

I sync the game files or w/e its called. Says its fine. Go back into dota, same thing. Restart steam. Steam won't login in says I am not connected to the internet. I restart my pc, same thing. (internet is fine this whole time btw) I say start up in offline mode. It does but then like instantly connects to me internet as its starting. My friends list is up and when I start up dota I can go into the store and search for a match and everything I am connected to the matchmaking server. Same problem as before.

I close dota and try crysis 2 multiplayer. I have never played it online before so I have to register for a crysis account and put in my product code both of those work fine. I try to go to the multiplayer menu it and it can't connect. Why is it doing this. Make it stop. Makes no sense. I am using MSE and windows firewall. I tried disabling firewall and finding game/connecting to steam didn't help.

I tried logging in again and it says this is a new computer enter the code from the email. So steam is clearly connected to the internet. I get the email get the code put it in. Says "working...." then says sorry steam can't connect to the servers. ORLY??? HOW DID I GET TO THIS F***ING POINT IF YOU CANT CONNECT TO THE INTERNET. Good god this is maddening.

No worries, its a problem with Steam, thats why more people are changing to Origin every day.

Try this:
Steam -> Settings -> Downloads -> Game server max pings / minute

Try setting that to a low number. If it's a high number some routers get overwhelmed by the thousands of servers being pinged and it can cause your router to freeze up for a few minutes. Also remember to restart your router once after doing that.

THe only weird thing I've noticed from Steam as of recent is whenever I click a link / load a file from the community page / store page. It at times doesn't register it as me clicking. I submit something and at times it just doesn't click it. I have to reload the page to click anything. It's weird but it's been happening.
