Have always had a problem updating steam on adsl with telstra at my current address. I tested my computer on another connection and it updates fast, but on my home connection it takes forever. Downloads at around 2-3kb/s and takes about 3-4 hours to update to the most recent version from a fresh install. I checked the ip addresses its trying to connect to which are listed below:
I have forwarded ports on my router and even enabled dmz on my internal ip to see if my router was causing any problems. I don't have any issues with download speeds for any other application. I have disabled/uninstalled any 3rd party software listed on the steam website that may possibly interfere with steam. I've tried killing connections to some of the ip addresses that steam tries to update from in hope it jumps to another update server but they are all similar ip addresses and all give no data transfer. I've tried changing the default download location to various australian servers with no change. Today steam required an update and it just won't update, i have nill data transfer between any of the update servers and it just sits on 0%.
Any ideas? or anyone else experiencing this problem?
