I get the IP address for my Laptop, but that's not the problem.  The
problem is when I start Linux, it no longer connects automatically.  I
have to connect manually.

I am connecting from My laptop (Linux) to my Desktop (windows).  It asks
me for a user name and Password which doesn't exist on the desktop to
view files.  The strange part is if I hit cancel it lets me see the
files I want to.  It just pops up with the password prompt every time i
hit cancel.
