    As I've said before. Connect to the Internet once with Steam and then put it into offline mode.

    I second that. I have three machines that use steam (sometimes a fourth laptop). All of them are set to offline mode except my gaming rig which I use for playing online.

    Your computer weighs 50lbs? That's crazy. There are cracks for steam, but again they require steam to be connected to the internet atleast once. You'll need to download the nosteam version of Portal instead.

    Your computer weighs too much?

    You've got to be kidding me, my computer weighs a little more than 20kg which should be very close to 50lbs and I've carried it 2km just to play over LAN with my friends. 50m is nothing.

    So, the easy solution is 50 feet away?

    ....sounds to me like you just don't want it bad enough.

    Buy a 50ft cable, use that to connect it once, and the return it saying it was defective.

    Yea, you don't want it bad enough, obviously. >:|

    In any case, does the download and go offline thing really work for any game? :wtf:; I downloaded a 'crack' for steam before but it just sucks, a lot. Doesn't let me download every game, and has problems with some, -tries the offline mode-

    Get an emulator called UCL (Universal Content Launcher). Google it, you'll find it. Don't use SteamEmu, its purpose is to make non-steam standalone games, what you want is an offline Steam replacement emulator/GCF launcher. You can also try Steam-Buster Revolution Orangebox, although it is no longer updated, UCL has more features, etc. All of these are virus-free, I have been using many of these for years.

    i got a simple solution, if you go to school you can probably find some ethernet cables which you can prob take/steal.

    I dont know why but when I downloaded Portal, I did not need steam at all. Just install and play with no issues at all.

    I'm assuming you mean a pirated copy of Portal. I've also used a pirated copy of Portal and it works perfectly without Steam.

    well, buy a cheap nintendo wifi USB adapter, and use the XP hacked drivers from G6team's mirror to make it into a router.
    Plug it into a different computer thats connected, and you're set!

    Thats how I registered mine...
    except my laptop has an integrated graphics card... so I can't play it...

    Yep. You are right there. It is a pirated version of the game.

    It had the REVOLUTiON emulator applied to it already. All stand-alone pirated releases do.
