You mean you are connected to a network (LAN) and you want to access shares on cumputers running Windows?
If yes you must install samba.

Have a look here (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=202605). Once you have set things up, you should be able to click on Places->Network and you should be able to see your Windows network

This work out of the box by going to Places - Network. However, this is broken by default in Hardy Heron (8.04) and later.

Does the smbtree command show anything useful in the terminal? (I still run Feisty [7.04], and it shows what it finds)
