Manually updating steam

As you can see from the screenshot below, media3.is mapped to the IP of the origin server instead of Level 3 CDN.Do take note that the IP address of the origin server may change, so it is best to double check the accuracy by pinging the origin hostname.

Since Steam randomly connects to a host, it is possible that it doesn’t cycle through all four CDN hosts.Unfortunately there is no way to force connect to a particular CDN because there is no command line option to do that and Windows HOSTS file can only support mapping an IP to a hostname, but not mapping a hostname to another hostname.However, all hope is not lost because there is still 2 possible solutions.If you are experiencing problems in updating the Steam software, here we have some workarounds to fix the problem.Steam used to have a huge amount of servers (some from Limelight CDN) located around the world and older versions of the software used an inefficient method to connect users to the servers.

Running Steam will download a small steam_client_win32 file from containing a list of files with SHA-1 checksum and size in bytes to check if Steam is up to date.
