Steam downloading issue

#1hitman24Posted 3/1/2014 10:51:24 AM
Hello,

ever since the last steam update when i go to download a game or update a game from my library it starts ok ok for a few seconds and then wont download anything after that.

Any ideas what is causing this or how to fix it?

Have you tried changing your download region in settings?

Try changing download servers.

Try changing your DNS servers to 8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4, 208.67.222.222, or 208.67.220.220. You can do this either from within Windows or in your Router.

Sounds to me that your ISP is blocking Steam.

Yesterday, I was defragging and downloading something via steam, about 100 megabytes into the download it started going slower and slower -- down to about 10 bytes a second to eventually not even downloading anything.
