  1. Check your wifi - do you have internet connection, best way is to open Safari or any other web browser and see if you are able to open any website.
  2. If you are not fix your wifi/internet connection issue - or switch to other network,
  3. If your internet connection seems fine, go to steam health check page to see if they have any server outage

Make sure you click on Retry connection - once you switch your network or you fix any issue network related issues to connect..
