Xubuntu 16.04: My network is configured and runs fine. But the pc is shown as part of the network "WORKGROUP". It should be part of "HOMENET".
Where can I configure that on the desktop?

Thanks https://askubuntu.com/users/658578/toomanypets, your comment solved it.
I had installed samba on that client. Other had no samba installed and did not have that problem.
I fixed it with:
sudo nano /etc/samba/smb.conf
Search the line (it should about the very first settings in the file) and change from
workgroup = WORKGROUP
workgroup = HOMENET
where I think the case does not matter. Save with Ctrl-o and exit with Ctrl-x. Finally, restart the samba service with
sudo /etc/init.d/samba restart
Hope it helps
