Steam constantly loses connection even though my internet connection is just fine. Just recently, when Gmod is loaded up and tries to load all of my addons, Steam keeps on loosing connection and only a handful of addons appear. This problem has been repeating itself for a while now, From the looks of it, this issue is so darn frustrating, I may have to unsubscribed from a couple of addons, just hope Steam receives an update that fixes this, if anyone else has the issue, or someone here has some advice.

    Too many simultaneous connections can cause some internet hardware to "hickup" which will break the connection for microsecond. It's short enough to go unnoticed in daily use, but with a company like Valve any bit of data lost en route to Steam means it's gotta reconnect, recertify, and recharge your credit card. If those addons use resources from multiple games (read: addons made by a monkey), Steam will fire up a download for each and every one of them, piledriving your PCs resources and link. It's really a pain, especially when it happens while connecting to a server.

    GMod won't auto-download games. If you don't have the game that the addon's content is from, you're going to have to install and mount it yourself.

    It's why so many people keep posting on my maps with stupid comments like "i c pruple an blik pls fix" when it says in the descriptions that they require CS:S or EP2.
