I've been a Linux/Ubuntu user/enthusiast since May of 2007. I've been on Ubuntuforums for almost as long. Looking forward to working with another diverse community of users.

Also, instead of lsusb | grep network you might try lsusb | grep -i network and/or sudo lshw | grep -i networkto get a quick list of network hardware.

@Odysseus, If you run sudo lshw -html > systemspecs.html it will generate an HTML file with your system's hardware info. Just open it with firefox and scroll through for a summary look at your available hardware. Networking hardware is usually near the bottom.

It would also be good to include which release (version) of Ubuntu are you using. The answer for 12.04 and earlier differs from 13.10 for example.

If that's the case, install SAMBA on the 12's.

I'm not sure of the exact issue, but if you install nmap on the 10.04, you could run it to check the available services on the PC's. The command to run nmap is nmap 127.0.0.1 to test the 10.04 PC and then substitute the ip address of the 12.04 machines. This will tell you what services are running on each machine. My guess is that you'll find SMB (SAMBA) services running on the 10.04 that aren't running the 12's.
