Steam Disconnection ongoing disconnection issues
#1 Posted 15 May 2012 - 02:07 PM
I am having disconnection problems. To make this simple I will list everything that has been done MULTIPLE TIMES and has failed.
1) Re Installed Steam
2) Re Installed CS 1.6
3) Deleted Steam.dll Registry blob ect. Then re-started.
4) Talked to my ISP personally and their end is good.
5) Opened Correct Ports on router
6) DMZ Server my IP
7) Disabled Router firewall
8) Uninstalled anti-virus
9) Disabled Windows Firewall
10) Stopped all Background process's
I get these error messages
"Steam lost connection." (Most common)
"Unable to connect to server because steam lost connection"
"Client Timed out because steam lost connection. Please check firewall blah blah"
I've even gone around my router to my modem and I still get d/c.
It's pretty random happening. Sometimes 1 minute into a game, sometimes 8-10 minutes into a game.
Nothing else gets d/c besides Steam and CS when I am playing it. Sometimes it will disconnect when I'm just chatting with someone.

My thoughts on it:
Your ISP could be affecting your connection simply because steam is not on a "web" port. Make sure you have the following setup in your router:
Steam Client UDP 27000 to 27015 inclusive (Game client traffic) UDP 27015 to 27030 inclusive (Typically Matchmaking and HLTV) TCP 27014 to 27050 inclusive (Steam downloads) UDP 4380 Dedicated or Listen Servers TCP 27015 (SRCDS Rcon port) Steamworks P2P Networking and Steam Voice Chat UDP 3478 (Outbound) UDP 4379 (Outbound) UDP 4380 (Outbound)
My old old ISP kept disconnecting my IRC chat because it blocked the ping mechanism to keep the connection alive, so it can still be on your ISP and there isnt much to do? Has this happened recently?
Another sure method is to simply take your computer to another house or neighbor with a different ISP or internet service and check if you still have the issue. They could also bring their machine to your house to see if its your ISP or your machine.
