Well it is a fact that letting a router choose your IP number
will ruin any *REAL* networking. You MUST know that computer A
is 192.168.0.5 And Computer B is 192.168.0.6 and your gateway
is the router at 192.168.0.0.
There is a way to tell Ubuntu to insist on a particular IP
number. I am going to find out how using Google first. I will
put in Ubuntu, ip number, fixed and see what it finds.
Finally chose a IP number that is near the number the router
used. You find that with $ sudo ifconfig and you should write
down all the numbers. They will all be useful. Have fun.
