Well, I'm in a difficult situation at the moment. I'm temporarily apart from my usual internet connection, and forced to use a really shitty solution. It's slow in ways I can't even explain: sometimes Chrome gives up at loading simple pages due to timeout errors. Going straight to the point: I've bought some titles in the current sale, and want to play some of them the sooner possible. The problem is I can't download any of them. In fact this happens with every program that implements its own downloading system - they just go corrupt or cancel in the midlle of the process.
Software specialized in downloading stuff usually do just fine for me, but Steam just won't. Is there any workaround? Perhaps some different configuration or external tool. I can login (after some insistence) just ok, but not download any game/update.
