Re: Cannot see network share but can access using IP directl

If you have the time it would be extremely helpful if you were to post the model number of your linksys router so others could benefit from your discovery. Sorry I wasn't able to help you with this issue. It never occurred to me that the router itself could actually impede network browsing. Thanks ...

Re: Cannot see network share but can access using IP directl

I finally got it fixed, the problem is my "new" "expensive" linksys router. Here is what I found: $ nmblookup workgroup#1d querying workgroup on 192.168.1.255 192.168.1.1 workgroup<1d> That's my router's IP. The new series of linksys router uses samba to detect network devices. I...

Re: Cannot see network share but can access using IP directl

Did you expand "Windows Network". Samba is a Windows protocol. I tried that also, it's empty. On my ubuntu box, I do not need to expand "windows network", and all network computers show up "next" to "windows network" What's even more weird is that I run nmblo...

Re: Cannot see network share but can access using IP directl

I just directly access by host name in the location bar like this: "smb://PC-ONE", this worked fine. This means my mint resolving hostname works fine. But browser all network computers still doesn't work, it just show nothing. http://s11.postimage.org/lblygn9n7/Screenshot_from_2012_12_09_2...

Re: Cannot see network share but can access using IP directl

After I swap the name resolve order, I restarted smbd and nmbd, and smbtree still returns nothing. All my computers are under 192.168.1.xxx. I have another ubuntu box in the same network. That computer wihout the need to swap the order, is able to see all the share in the network. I honestly think t...

Re: Cannot see network share but can access using IP directl

Without knowing anything about how you are set up I would guess it's about how your Mint machine is configured to resolve netbios names to ip addresses ( name resolve order ). Go through the checklist and see if it resolves anything: Samba Browsing Problems Checklist : http://forums.linuxmint.com/v...

Cannot see network share but can access using IP directly

When I try to see my network computer, I couldn't see any. I am pretty sure, those computers are config correctly, since they could see each others. I tried to access directly by IP "smb://192.168.1.3", this works fine, but the browse nework just doesn't work. This has worked sometimes, bu...
