Ok, I used to be able to connect to shared files on my Windows pc's in
the network (a Windows network) and transfer/print files. But now, when
I go to Places > Network, I see "Windows Network" (as shown in attached
pic), but when I enter it, nothing, not even a workgroup. No changes
have been made to the network. I can ping other pc's in the network. I
posted about this on Ubuntu Forums, and a user said he was having the
same problem for about three weeks now AFTER AN UPDATE. He gave me a
workaround, and it allows me to access the shared files, but I still
can't print. The workaround can be found in detail at:


Can someone please help? Thanks a million!
