IP Address blocked going to Steam

Hi,

Starting yesterday my IP address through the whole house is being blocked by Steam. If I use a VPN or my phone not connected to the wifi or a different wifi network, I can connect fine. Otherwise it seems to be blocked on all 3 computers in the home. Below is what I see when trying to connect via a web browser on any computer. I have contacted Steam as well and am awaiting a response but, I think my IP address has been blacklisted and I don't know why.


My IP address is : 174.96.22.252

    Didn't come up on any blacklists I was able to check... possible the IP could have been used by a bad actor in the past.

    Could try powering off the modem for an extended time (like over night) to see if you manage to get a different IP on the lease renewal.

    Hi @Benniewm78, welcome to our community. I do not believe Steam does IP bans. Steams website is a secure site, so it should have an s after the http. Can you access their website by using the url https://store.steampowered.com/ ? Are you also having problems with the Steam program?
