Hello! Today I've encountered a problem with my Internet connection. Everything was just fine with the Internet, but suddenly I couldn't use Skype and Steam anymore. I've solved the things with my router, but the problem persists. Other apps such as Uplay and Origin work fine, and so do browsers. I can easily surf the web. Now, Steam won't even run. In the background, Windows 7 is making some important updates that I've been waiting for my computer to find for weeks. They're 167 updates. Should I be worried by this or is there any solution for it? Thank you for taking your time to read this topic! If you need any information or if I've made a mistake, feel free to correct me and give me a solution for the problem.

What "things" have you solved with your router? If you bypass the router, does the issue continue? Or if you connect a different computer to the modem/router?
