dreadnought launcher asking for steam link again?
That sounds like you started Steam in offline modus inadvertently. When you open Your Steam client window, you should find a button called just "Steam" in it's upper left corner. If you click it, you will get some more buttons. One of them would say "go Online". You have to click it, so that Steam is closed and startet again in online Mode. Then you should be able to start online Multiplayer games via Steam.
