Steam allows for games to specify the minimum content required for launching a game.

Your subnet mask is not allowing you to see other subnets on the network. In routing, the network mask tells your computer what IPs it can see. In your case, your subnet mask is probably set to 255.255.255.0, which only allows your computer to see IPs on the 172.31.54.x subnet. To tell your computer to see IPs on the 172.31.x.x subnet, you'll have to set ...

It might be difficult to completely answer your question, but I can provide some considerations. Which games do you want to play?
