comment Mark file as “uncommitable” with Git
Note that all answers don't really answer your question. They do not make the file uncommitable, they simply configure git so that it ignores it by default. But if you accidentally insert that filename into a git command line you can end up commiting it even though it matches a pattern in .gitignore. AFAIK there is no 100% full-proof way of telling git to avoid commiting a specific file in all cases. Though this may be seen as a feature... allowing for explicit commands to override generic configurations.

comment Computer doesn't use more than 4 of my 8GB of RAM…? (64-bit computer)
If you want a program that simply uses tons of RAM you can just write one line of python (or other scripting language). E.g.: a = list(range(500000000));input(). this will simply consume memory and wait for an enter. Increase the number at pleasure to use more memory.

comment Can I install Linux on a computer that has Windows 7
I don't get the ">4GB" restriction. I've been using 4GB USB drive for the last few years and never had any problem with those... in fact I can usually use up to 1GB to keep files saved when using the drive as LiveCD.

comment How to reach my router's configuration page?
@JonathanS To undo should I do route add default gw 158.110.96.1? (The IP is taken from what was the output of route before). I'll try to investigate more and, probably open a new question about that if I can't fix it.

Could your solution slow down the wifi network? In the last 2 days the speed of my connection is quite unstable and the speed, for most of the time, is orders of magnitude slower than before (I passed from ~ 5+ MB/s to a lot of time where I cannot go over 50-100kB...). I'm not sure which is the cause; I'm wondering whether setting the default gateway could have such an effect or if I should investigate more and eventually open a new question.

comment How to reach my router's configuration page?
@JonathanS I've tried the commands you provided me and, finally, I can access the route configuration page! When connected to the router I cannot access the Internet though. Is this normal, or is there a way to have both things?

@JonathanS I'm using ubuntu 14.04 (although I'm a kde user, so I've actually installed the kubuntu-desktop package which makes the OS pretty much kubuntu 14.04). In this moment I don't have time, but later I'll try what you suggest and report the results.

@harrymc Nothing. The browser just keeps loading. Using ping 192.168.0.1 simply tells me that all the packets are lost.

comment How to reach my router's configuration page?
I have no idea how to set the ip of my computer. Nor how to set a mask or gateway etc. I know what these things are, I know what DHCP does but how to configure all these stuff is outside my knowledge. Please explain how to perform the configuration steps, not just which configuration should fix the problem.

@Overmind I really have no idea what you are talking about. I'm a complete newbie at network configuration and to me saying "assign a different net to the initial 192.168.1.1" is just like saying "tap the laptop with your magic wand". Anyway I've updated the question with a bit more information.

Fixed a bit of formatting and added disclaimer about being a network n00b.

comment How to reach my router's configuration page?
I can do the first step (reset to default configuration), however I have no idea what you mean with all the rest of the stuff. How can I enable DHCP? Every time I tried the network didn't work at all. Disabling it made the network work. I highly doubt the firmware is damaged, I believe it's a configuration problem. Note that I'm inside a college building so there the configuration of the building network may not be the "default" one people are used to see, which is probably why the default router configuration doesn't work.

@Vinayak No, it doesn't work. That website is mentioned in the instructions of the router, in the configuration about shared USB devices.

comment How to reach my router's configuration page?
Note that trying to connect to http://158.110.96.1 opens up a ZeroShell page (the network uses "captive login" stuff...), and it looks like an administrator page or something like that (at least, is not the usual captive login page and my credentials don't work there).

I've added the output of ip addr and ip route in the "default setting" (i.e. router accesses WAN via ethernet and my laptop is connected with the wifi of the router). I'd like to access the router settings from that configuration. I believe the other output referred to when I connected to the router by putting an ethernet cable between router's WAN port and my laptop.
