My System Specs

Default Can't login to Steam...

Did they add a port you have to have open recently or something, because I can't sign in, if I put in the wrong password I instantly get rejected, but when I put the right one in, it sez it can't connect to the network. I've tried all 3 of my OS's... with the same results.

Right now, I'd put money on my router dying again, you only seem to get a couple of years out of these D-Link's before they go all screwy

You should just put your router on DMZ mode to your IP.

That's rarely a solution because that breaks all other port forwards to other machines in his network (if any)

I've got the ports forwarded in their FAQ, I've reset the router, no luck in connecting through it.

Yes, DMZ will fail with with the amount of port forwarding I've got going on, I already found that out a couple weeks ago when I was to lazy to change which IP the ports were being forwarded to.

Seems a port range that worked with TCP, now only works with UDP. WTH can't games use a consistent port!
Achievements in HL2, WTH, I beat this game years ago (and am STILL waiting for Ep3 so I can play the whole thing at once!)
