Problem: I just finished installing Ubuntu 11.04 (64 bit) on my Fujitsu tablet (Lifebook T4215). Although I wanted to install 10.04, the pen did not work despite many "solutions", so ended up with 11.04 and it works. Everything in this install works as it is supposed to including internet. However, I can not see any of my other computers in the home network. I have 2 XP and 2 Windows 7 computers - each with at least one drive "shared data". By the way, this issue was also present with 10.04 install.

My home network workgroup is myhome and with ubuntu the default is workgroup, so I did go in to samba config (/etc/samba/smb.conf) and changed workgroup = myhome. Although, I know this should not matter as I do not have server installation and samba is not running.

I would appreciate any help. Thank you.
