Re: Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.10 LAN Problem
This link is very good. Note the Samba package that it installs and be sure to do that. It's different than the automatic install of samba that is installed when creating 'share'. If all permissions and shares are done, you won't need to type in the ip address any longer.
See attached images in these post to see network from ubuntu and windows 8 only using Samba. Working computer names are DellPrecise 'ubuntu' and tinas8. Second link is working with ubuntu/winXP
