After the early morning of December 26, 2017 (UTC+8), Steam users in China Mainland cannot access the Steam Community.

According to sources, some Chinese Steam users have published politically sensitive information in the Steam Community.

Although Valve made an adjustment: Users of China Mainland IP Addresses cannot access Steam Discussions, China Mainland still does not remove the restriction for Steam Community.

So now we are still unable to access the Steam Community(Profile,Workshop,Market and etc. at steamcommunity.com) in China Mainland.

Steam Community is disturbed by DNS cache pollution, so we have the following methods to solve this problem:

  • HOSTS
  • Software
  • Use a non-polluting DNS

HOSTS

HOW TO EDIT HOSTS: https://support.rackspace.com/how-to/modify-your-hosts-file/
There have same ip addresses:

  • 104.66.140.148 steamcommunity.com
  • 184.26.249.41 steamcommunity.com
  • 104.74.243.84 steamcommunity.com
  • 23.66.253.192 steamcommunity.com
  • 104.69.173.52 steamcommunity.com

You can also use Software “UsbEAm Hosts Editor”: https://www.dogfight360.com/blog/475/

Software

Non-polluting DNS

I recommend using Neat DNS deployed by the USTC. Their servers are located in Hefei, China.

Change your DNS servers settings: https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/using#change_your_dns_servers_settings
Android: You can use some DNS Changer APP, such as: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.frostnerd.dnschanger .
iOS: You can use some DNS Changer APP.
Neat DNS IP Addresses:

  • 202.141.162.123 (China Telecom)
  • 202.141.178.13 (China Mobile)
  • 202.38.93.153 (China Education Network)

Warning: Neat DNS just can be used in China Mainland.
