I have an internet connection, it seems to work fine. I am not in offline mode (nor can I switch to that). For some reason when I try to launch steam it just hangs on "Connecting to Steam account: xxxxxx". When I open task manager, I can that it is doing I/O writes, not sure to what though. So it isn't dead, just stalling really. It eventually will just timeout and say that it cannot connect to steam. Rebooting did not fix the problem, and this is not the first time it has happened. Switching user accounts on the same computer does not help either. Neither has trying another laptop which has steam (same account) installed. It is doing this on 2 separate networks also, my Hotel's WIFI (not the fastest but it appears to be working fine) and my 3g DTAC (cell) Network card. I am currently in Thailand if that matters, perhaps it is trying a server here that is down?
