What are you trying to do with windows 7 and Ubuntu. I have
Windows 7 and Ubuntu LTS 10.04.4 both on my home and work
networks. They share printers and file systems both
directions using samba. I do assign private ip addresses
for all my computers and use a wired ethernet connection.
Have you set up the computer name and workgroup on the
windows 7 machine, did you make sure the user name and
passwords are correct so they match what you have set up for
samba? Did you set up TCP/IPv4 on the windows 7 machine?
Did you put a host file on the Windows 7 machine? (not sure
if you still need this but you did with XP so I created them
on Windows 7) I assume you have the ubuntu side set up
properly since it worked with your old windows computer
Also to get ubuntu printers working on my Windows 7 machines
I have had to use the ip address rather than the computer name.
Select "Add a network printer ..."
Select "Connect to a printer on the Internet..." and
type in the URL for the print queue. It will look like
PrinterName is the same from the localhost:631 entry
of your printer). Then click the Next button.
In the next windows select your printer model. If it
doesn't have the driver you may have to install it
first as a local printer, when you do this Windows 7
gives you a choice to get additional printer drives
but when installing from the Internet it doesn't give
you this option. Then after you install the real
printer delete the old one
Hope this helps
