Keep it simple... you know. Sounds like you and Steam aren't getting along, look around the settings I'm sure you can change your connection type. Steam can be used offline, I used the SDK to demo a Portal map at school while offline so I know it works. If you don't have any illegal activities to hide, you can turn on uPnP port forwarding and that'll take care of that. Any client with ports needing forwarding that don't use uPnP should have a static IP, so PEBKAC there. I wouldn't recommend having the router or any networking equipment in a living room. You didn't mention what ISP you're using. Do you suspect that a reinstallation of your OS will fix the problem? Reinstalls fix 95% of all my problems.

FYI, it's easier to drag a patch cable than a PC.
