How to make STEAM download faster? - Page 3  

post #21 of 41
try going into settings in steam and adjust your speed connection there. Idk if it will have a huge impact but hey you never know. Also the slow speed could be caused by a lot of other people dl the same game from steam.

Thanks, but that really doesn't help. It's still going from 88.7 kb/s to 93.4 kb/s... etc.

Close Steam. Go to your Steam folder (Usually C:/program files/steam). Delete "clientreg.blob" and restart Steam. This will force Steam to look for a new content server to download from. On a side note, deleting that file and restarting Steam will fix 99% of Steam problems.

Downloading from steam is an all or nothing sort of thing. Ive gotten 1.2mb/s before but i average 700ish. There are times that i get 75kb/s as well. Steam is has really unstable download rates so there isnt much you can do to get it faster.

if speedtest says you are getting 1Mb/s that would account for 90KB/s download speed on steam. also could you run speedtest again and copy and paste the forum link here so you a image like this

Actually... I got the whole crysis warhead thing all figured out with steam. I am no longer needing to download stuff thank GOD.

Thanks for all your help and advice guys... if you really want still though I guess when I get home I can post a speed test dealy. But it's kinda not necessary at this point I am just happy I can finally play warhead, after I bought it like a week ago!!

I was just looking around for a solution to my Steam problem too and suddenly, I came across your answer. I tried it and my "Orange Box" downloads went from 50%, 81%, 99%, and 63% to 100%! Thank you so much!

Get a faster internet service. I have 35mb/s and DL from steam at 3.8mb/s

When i had 25mb/s i DL'd at 2.4mb/s

when I had 10mb/s i DL'd at 1mb/s

It seems to do about a tenth of your speed.
