I'm getting this error, although since installing Ubuntu 10.10 the network DID work once, but now I get this error all the time.

Where do I go to resolve ? Network config is far from obvious from the Gui !

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You may not be on the same WORKGROUP as your other shares - so a list is unable to be generated.

Try connecting directly to the share via it's IP address and protocol to ensure you're still able to see and reach any share.

as an example of how to do this, try running in terminal this command: nautilus smb:// if this works and you see the share, i'd just bookmark it. – nathwill Oct 12 '10 at 21:15
