comment I just assembled my computer and the motherboard started smoking, how do I know which parts are affected?
check the motherboard isn't shorted on the case. Like say if a screw got dropped during putting together and wedged behind the board and the case. -- I have done this, it sucked. (and it was subsequently permanently broken)

you haven't set one up, or there isn't one ? That may not be the same thing. Either way, just this conversation indicates there's just not enough information for anyone to help you without an extended all-encompassing answer which tries to do an entire walkthrough of all possible issues involved, which isn't a good fit for a Q&A site. Sorry :-(

the configuration of your dns entries would be good. The domain name in question, the output of ping operations, the configuration of firewalls on the machine, any traceroute output.... etc etc.

there's nowhere near enough information given to answer this without vague hand waving and interpreted dance.

comment Is there a way to set a static IP's last 3 digits only in linux?
i think we've a misunderstanding because we're saying the same thing in different ways. You need a reservation in each subnet for the same mac, yes. It should be possible to do that with dhcp via per-subnet dhcp scopes, but it's certainly a bad idea.

so basically, switches act a bit like old-school hubs for unknown frames.

it'd still be unique because each rotuer is in a different subnet and the reservation third octet would differ based on dhcp view per subnet. It's a bad idea though, it's over complicated, and puts a weird significance onto the value of fourth octet, which seems illogical.

why is the last octet (the fourth number) significant at all ? dns updated from dhcp is your friend. You'll need to put a static reservation on each router for that device though.

comment RAM Usage is insane running a game
+1. Using RAM is a good thing. You want it all used where possible, unless you've A) got something more important to use it on, or B) its swapping to disk. In this case, looks fine.
