For the past couple of days i've been having problems with steam as well. My copy of steam displays the message that it can't connect to the steam server.

zeus, if you have a firewall please check your settings. that is the most common problem with steam connecting.

I will also add that if you use xfire to join, the most recent versions of both are having compatabilty issues.

The first thing I did when I had a problem connecting was to check the firewall and it's setup ok.
