View Full Version : [lubuntu] home network issue

April 30th, 2011, 05:28 AM
I have a home network with one computer with ubuntu and two laptops with vista and one router. Last month, ubuntu could access files on vista machines and vista machines could access files on ubuntu machine. Everything great.
The only change was an update to ubuntu 10.10 in april. After the update, the ubuntu machine can access files as before, but I get "The network name can not be found" the connection has not been restored".
What changed in the last update, and what must i do to restore access to Ubuntu files?
(note: the config file has NOT been changed)

I think I solved the problem I had:

I have to mount the files/folders on the ubuntu machine and also mount the network and make connection to the laptop computers.
Before the update, I did not have to mount the Network.
