How to download Steam update faster ?

Recently I ran into this kind of frustration, whenever I login Steam to play my favorite Dota 2, I’ll be force to install some updates. The update download take forever to finish, it keeps stuck at some certain percent. Poofff Valve, wth ?!!!

So it take a while and I figure out that somehow my TCP connection to Valve update server got stuck.

Tada, that’s an easy fix ! I downloaded Sysinternal TCPView, and whenever the connection got stuck, I close it and wait for a while: the update connection will auto-reconnect back to the server, and zap!! My update finished much faster than before.


Try it for yourself if you have my problems
