Re: smb bookmarks to windows 7 stopped working

STOP THE PRESS! I just did a windows update, and, after restart, the network magically started working again on my Linux box. Thank you all for your efforts and I'll let you know if the curse returns.

Re: smb bookmarks to windows 7 stopped working

Looks like you don't have anything at 192.168.0.8 When I typed "ipconfig" into the windows terminal, that's the "ipv4 address" which was listed. Don't know why you invoked caja when you are using Mint 18.2 Cinnamon. Because I don't know what I'm doing. It's all Greek to me. This doesn't seem like a...

Re: smb bookmarks to windows 7 stopped working

Ok, trying to do this. I went to the pc, opened cmd, and typed "ipconfig". Should I choose "default gateway" or "ipv4 address"? They are different.

I followed Xenopeek's guide "How to update your kernel for Meltdown and Spectre" https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=90&t=261343 Now everything is running super slowly.

Switching it back had no immediate effect. I poked around in QasMixer, but c...
