How to set up local DNS for Windows / Linux LAN?
I have a very small home wireless network with a few Ubuntu, Windows XP, and Windows Vista machines. I use DD-WRT on the router.
I can not get local network browsing via Samba to work correctly, because none of the computers on the network can resolve computer names. On Ubuntu (Gnome) if I connect to a windows machine directly by IP address, I can access it, but if I try to browse the network it shows the computer names, but won't actually mount them, saying "Failed to connect to share". I can't ping the computernames, but I can ping the IP addresses.
I am attaching screenshots of the setup of my DD-WRT router, but I have already experimented with all those settings and I can't seem to make any difference.
Thanks in advance for your help!
