    2) do you have a firewall enabled on the ubuntu machine?
    All 3 computers have the firewalls working. Turn off?

    for testing purposes yes, disable all firewalls.

    Code:
    PING 192.168.0.2 (192.168.0.2): 56 data bytes
    64 bytes from 192.168.0.2: icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=1.796 ms
    64 bytes from 192.168.0.2: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=2.120 ms
    64 bytes from 192.168.0.2: icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=1.895 ms
    64 bytes from 192.168.0.2: icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=2.293 ms
    or you will get something saying no route to host - that means the test fails.

    if you can't ping the xp box then we have no chance whatsoever until we sort your basic networking issues out.

    N.B. the ip address has nothing to do with the actual physical ports on the hub/switch/router they are either statically assigned to a computer or assigned by a dhcp server. Typically the first 3 numbers will be the same (especially if you are actually using a hub not a switch, but the final number could be almost anything.
    Sorry, issih. I know you're trying to help me. As I said I'm a newbe & very slow.
    I had to install the db software. Once finished I tried to ping as you said & got,

    george@george-desktop:~$ dp ping 192.168.0.4
    dp: no vocab file specified


    I repeated the next 3 as well with the same response.

    ah....my fault, no the dp was a typo for do all you type is :

    Code:
    ping 192.168.0.2
    replacing the 192.168.0.2 with the ip address of one of the xp machines

    don't worry about being new, we all are at some point

    Thanks,
    Bingo! Plus similar results on the other 3 ports as well.

    george@george-desktop:~$ ping 192.168.0.4

    couldn't stop it so I closed.

    ping is a little bit different in ubuntu than windows

    ping -c4 <ipaddress> will limit the pings to 4. If you dont put in a number, it will go on forever -- use cntl-c to break.

    I really don't understand what you mean by getting the same on the other 4 ports...as I say the ports on the hub have nothing to do with the IP address.

    Anyway, that is good, you have at least got basic network connectivity between the ubuntu machine and the xp machine.

    Now what happens if you open a file browser and enter:

    Code:
    smb://192.168.0.4
    in the address bar?

    Re: How to setup home network? Heeeeeeeeeelp!

    I can ping the xp box across the room, but when I click on the network icon, I see windows network, and when I click that, I get nothing. When I try to see this machine (with a shared folder), I see nothing at all.

    And what's this mean?

    Code:
    bill@bill-desktop:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/samba stop
     * Stopping Samba daemons 
    start-stop-daemon: warning: failed to kill 18744: No such process

    ping 192.168.0.4

    instead.
