My System Specs


Before you get into formatting, I'd check that dial up connection, make sure it's not still there in control panel. I suspect Steam is confused now.
Another option, though I don't know that it's to do with connection problems, is to delete the clientregistry.blob file in your steam folder, then run steam.exe. That sometimes fixes Steam problems. You can even delete all files except steam.exe in the steam root folder (NOT FOLDERS), and run steam.exe. It does an even bigger refresh to your files (assuming you have a connection). ( I've done this many times, it always resets my Steam content server location to Toronto for some reason.)
There's a Steam support article about it but I can't access it from my current location.

I'd still check your net connections.
