Downloaded Steam tonight and have been having issues opening up some pages (I use Chrome) and playing videos. The connection is all together very slow otherwise. I uninstalled and that did not fix the issue. I reinstalled and things are a bit better but still having some of the issues mentioned above. IIs Steam using all my bandwidth? Is there a fix for this? Thanks, all.
Steam killing my Internet connection?
@stryker1121: Also worth knowing that when Steam is downloading anything, including game updates that you didn't actively start yourself, it tends to chew up all of your bandwidth. I remember i couldn't do anything with the internet when Max Payne 3's whopping 30 gig download was going through.
It's been suggested to Steam that they add the ability for users to throttle downloads but until then you'd have to use something like NetLimiter if you want the throttle the allocated bandwidth yourself.
