Steam won't connect to the internet !

Hello, 2 weeks ago steam was working normally and now suddenly it just won't connect to the internet ...
I tried reinstalling it, but I just lost my files and have to download TF2 all over again, so it won't update or anything. It tells me to connect to the internet. .
I did not put any proxy and stuff or changed protocols or anything in that kind. I searched in many forums and tried many things but nothing worked.
Plz help me ! (I want to play .... getting bored )

Thx in Advance !!!

If this is the network error message about it not being able to connect to Steam I get that randomly too, though it usually works after the second or third attempt. Seems to be more Steam's end, for me at least.

Are you using a router or any firewalls?
Since steam updated last night, any exception rules made for steam may need to be redone.

Go into the router control panel, delete the entry for steam & then re-add it. Then try steam again.

If it is, revert back to the non-beta & see if it works.

If you don't know what the beta thing is, you more than likely are not participating in it.


As for the router CP, it's url is similar to this.
http://192.168.1.1/xxxxxxx.htm
When you log in, look for applications & gaming.
