But whenever I try to play a game online, open the store or go to the community Steam crashes.If you are on a personal connection, like at home, you can run an anti-virus scan on your device to make sure it is not infected with malware.Because the steam on my laptop says the same thing here, but when I go to my friends house, it works just fine.If anyone has any idea on how to fix this, please respond. (I've got a Windows 8.1 computer btw)Update So by resetting my winsock entries and TCP/IP I can now log in Steam when I start my computer.ref=1456-EUDN-2493 " Rolo: for me, this problem was caused by a optional windows update, ralink wlan 802.11n usb wireless lan card.I fixed it by going to device manager, network adapters, driver, roll back drivers. Seismoid: I had the same problem with my steam client ("Could not connect to steam network", then after deleting everything but and /steamapps folder "steam client has to be online to update", then after uninstalling steam and trying to reinstall it took ~20 tries until it downloaded the 110mb without error, but still kept getting errors that it could not connect to steam network).
Even though I've got a normal internet connection, since I'm writing this. I do know that there's nothing wrong with my Steam installation.
In my case I just took a look at the windows update history (win7) and found out that the wlan driver was updated on march 5th.
So I rolled back that update and everything worked again.
It seems in most of the cases, Steam's problem stems from a bad Wi-fi or network driver.
Hi, I would like to know if anyone knows how to solve a problem I have with Steam at the moment.
