http://ubuntuforums.org – hi, I'm still new to ubuntu, but i'm getting realy frustraded because I don't know how to setup a network between the 2 computers where I have ubuntu 10.10 installed on. I have a wireless router for the internet down in the basement and a second, wired connection for my pc's upstairs. I'm using one as a download "server" and the other is my main desktop. When I try to set-up a wired connection next to my wireless, I can;t get any further, I just can't get the 2 computers the find each other, while they are both running on ubuntu 10.10. I've installed WICD network manager, but eve (HowTos)
