Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Dear steam,
I understand that you care not for your customer base,
I understand that you are sitting at your router unplugging the power cord and laughing
I even understand that maintenance is a synonym for laughter with yall.
BUT a little forwarning would be nice.... Maybe a little message that says hey.. were gonna be bringing servers down for about an hour or two while we work on them.
That way it doesn't turn 12:01 on my birthday and I swallow 3 cups of coffee to zoom through a few games only to realize that... well you can't spell DOuche without U.

make a shortcut to steam at desktop select the shorcuts properties and add "-tcp" to the end it will connect you to steam but be sure to remove the se asia and affrican servers.

Even if you fix the "Searching the network for Dota 2", you still can't play. Even when creating and playing a bot game using 'Lobbies' it'll still "Find Server" for infinity.
