View Full Version : Slow downloads in Steam?

I'm not sure whether this is WINE related or Steam related, but downloads in Steam are going VERY slow.

Right now I'm installing Counter-Strike: Source, and it's downloading at 3 kb/s

wow thats slow

when i downloaded counter strike it took about 4 hours and i got pretty good rates around 150kb/s

are you trying to download through a router. if so there could be a closed port not allowing you to get a fast download
are you could have another download or are seeding something in a bittorrent, also can you get good speeds with other down loads from the internet?

i am also behind a probably for this program "closed" router, got open NAT though!

I have the same problem here :(

Opened all the ports that are needed though.
