[ubuntu] Windows XP and WIndows 7 Share

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I recently decided to try out Ubuntu and to be honest the installation was easy and everything worked including printing to Windows Shared Printers and Windows Files Servers and then after two days of everything working fine the network connection to Windows stopped. Now I can't see any windows networks, no windows shares and no windows printers. I have edited the /etc/samba/smb.conf file to include my Windows Workgroup name and added a "netbios name = workstation name" entry. I have re-installed Ubuntu several times today on different machines just to see if the problem persist, (HowTos)
