I am trying to load the program "steam" onto my computer, it is made for updating games through the internet. But, everytime i try to load it, it tries to get through to the internet to update, and it doesn't let it. What can i do to fix it? i think it may be a problem with my modem, i have an ActionTec GT701-WG if that matters. THANKS/

Re: MY MODEM IS SCREWING UP MY GAMING!
You must go to your computer go to your browser ... access the web interface that you have inside the modem (refer to manual to see exact IP most of them are http://10.0.0.138 and from there you can arrange the firewall to allow the steam software to connect through. Most probably you will have a preset which you have to choose for gaming in order to get things going.

most of the time if a game will not load it isnt the games falt but the game system your playing it on if i were you i would try to reset the gaming system and also clean the disc or erase everything off of the game and try again if this does not work contact the person you got the game and the gaming system so you can return either one depend which one if it is your gaming system you gaming system should say something along the lines of your gaming system is not updated for this game or this game will take to much space on this gaming system and in this case you would have to reset your gaming system if it is the game it will pop up on the screen of your device with a call of duty 2 sign and will stay there until you take it out of your device i hoped this helped you
windows 7 may do that for compatibility issues. also have seen some third party software blocking games and programs from being installed as well. and "Steam" gaming software is the biggest blocker of them all! you buy the game once at a store then try to install it and "Steam" software blocks it from being installed because they want you to buy the game again from them as a game download and costing you more of your hard earned money!! refer to local service tech or games web site for more tech support and install work around.

I'M NOT SURE I UNDERSTAND HOW YOU WERE TRYING TO DOWNLOAD THE DRIVER IF YOU WEREN'T CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET? EVEN IF THE GAMING COMPUTER ISN'T HOOKED UP TO THE INTERNET, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO IMPUT ANY DATA FROM A JUMP DRIVE, IF YOU DOWNLOADED IT FROM THE INTERNET. WITHOUT AN INTERNET CONNECTION YOU NEED TO USE ANOTHER COMPUTER TO DOWNLOAD THIS DRIVER, THEN INSTALL IT ON YOUR GAMING MACHINE. OK? DOES THIS HELP?
