  1. i have had this problem before and a simple steam reinstall is all it took. Not this time seems like steam thinks that my login is not correct for some screwy reason. when i go to log in it tells me that my login info is wrong, but it has been the same for 4 yrs now. i tried to login on my buddies box and it worked just fine, got into the steam server and was able to play counter strike. i think that maybe it was the fact that i ran windows update for vista home premium and it installed the updates for my wireless adapter and pooched the info for steam somehow cause i am not using wireless i am usin cable wired 5mb connection. i had this issue before, when i would use the wireless at lan games then went back to wired it would not let me log back into the steam network unless i was using the wirelss card. then i reinstalled steam and it worked wired. huh i have no clue. so far i have reinstalled 4 times to no avail and i have taken the wireless adapter out and reinstalled to no avail thinking that vista would pooch the box again with another bad update then turn the wireless on with the cat5 and windows craps its pants. so please let me know what you guys think
