Ubuntu 11.04 (PC-1) is connected to PC-2 (Windows XP) with LAN cable (crossover direct cable)
Internet access is through USB wireless modem accessing router in separate room
If I boot in Windows 7 (PC-1 has dual boot) I have no problem to connect to PC-2, at the same time being connected to Internet, even sharing my Internet connection with PC-2. I set static IP address and Subnet mask on both PCs and that's all for bare connection. Additionally I have set Remote Desktop Sharing and Internet connection sharing, which works as expected.
- I can't find a way to connect Ubuntu with PC-2 (Wired LAN connection)
- When I was using Debian (month ago, as my first Linux experiance) I used Wicd and I could connect to PC-2, but I could not have Internet connection at the same time (either Wired or Wireless)
Can someone enlighten a bit this network issues, as man pages or help files aren't for bare mortals like me, but perhaps for network experts, as I did not understood a word in it
