I'm still having problems getting a reliable connection to my two
box/Linksys router Windows network. I appear to connect now and again
by frequently clicking on the Reload button. So when I get to the
Windows network icon, double click on it, I now and again get an icon
for MSHOME. If I double click on it, I may get one computer but not the
other or neither, but seldom both at once. I have to think this is a
bit of a showstopper, especially as my prime printer is connected to my
XP box, not the Ubuntu box, which is the host.
I have tried disabling ipv6, which reportedly can cause problems. This
gave no improvement. I've rebooted the wired modem and the router,
which got me to the present state. (Before I had absolutely no
connection.) I have re-installed Samba. Nothing seems to get me the
reliable LAN connection that I so desperately need.
Any help on this issue would be most gratefully accepted!
My second problem relates to the mounting of my removable storage, a
160Gb hard drive that plugs in to my HP box. This drive is not
recognized from a cold boot. But mounts every time with a second
reboot. Strange, eh?
Maybe I should give the whole rig a swift kick! I would hate to be
driven back to Windows because of these two difficulties because I
really like Ubuntu.
Perhaps I should put in bug reports, although I'm not quite sure how?
