I'd really appreciate it if someone could give me some assistance with this.(If I'm posting this in the wrong section then I apologize) I have recently installed a secondary hard drive.
I decided to create a Steam directory on the new hard drive and put all of my Gmod related games on it. If I exit the Steam client then the game does not appear in my downloading list.
They can be performed with a minimal amount of technical knowledge.
It's always a good first step to make sure that you restart Steam as well as your computer.
My Setup: Windows 10Asus Maximus VII Genei7-4770KGTX 980Corsair RAM (16 GB)Samsung 850 Evo 500GB1TB Seagate 5400 RPM128 GB Sandisk SSDNetgear WNDA3100 Wireless USB adapter Not sure if there is any thing else worth mentioning.
I have had an issue with two other programs, installing adobe photo shop elements 14 and premier, and uplay downloader does not work well either. With steam if I continue to move games to update it will eventually install after 30 minutes or so because it downloads the games in small increments...
In any case if you can log into the router you should do a few simple checks. See if the hardware firewall is enabled in the router, if it is set to high try setting it to medium.
As a small note if the HW fire wall is on, then turn off any software based firewall protection on the computer it`s self, two fire walls can conflict and cause cut off of downloads ect or lag, speed limitation when downloading ok. Check the conditions related to the firewall, options like IP flood protection can be turned off. If you are using steam to download games, or updates, in the port forwarding section of the router menu set up the ports that steam uses for data transmission. Steam Client This one : UDP 27000 to 27015 inclusive (Game client traffic) This one : TCP 27014 to 27050 inclusive (Steam downloads) UDP 27015 to 27030 inclusive (Typically Matchmaking and HLTV) UDP 2706 (incoming, for In-Home Streaming) TCP 2707 (incoming, for In-Home Streaming) UDP 4380 As you can see in the list there are ports that in some routers need to be set up to avoid the router cutting the download,or updates of mid downloading ect.
The HDD that it's downloading to is a Hitachi HTS545032B9SA00 and it's formatted to NTFS.Some routers trigger a cut off of all internet downloading when IP flooding is triggered when enabled. First in port forwarding, give the service a name for each set of UDP or TCP port ranges setup. It will ask you to enter an IP address of the machine running steam, the IP address the router gave your computer.As it considers it as an attack from an outside source or from a Wan, in other words the update or download from the steam server ok. You can find this i your router under the connected devices section, where it lists the name of the computer and the IP address the router assigned it.I just got a new router and whenever I try to download that exact message pops up (with the game title) The download starts, goes up to about 5 mbps for about thirty seconds and then stops with that message popping up.I've deleted my steam folder, and tried everything I could find but nothing has worked.. It would help if you listed the brand of your new router, and its model number.
