Problem Solved... Thank u 4 your help...
Repeating: Desktop has winXP, laptop Ubuntu..
Now...billairds---> i have no router, unless u mean i am using my desktop pc as router.. If so, i dont know how to get it to work as dhcp.. lol
tekk----> thanx very much 4 your link. I believe i ll find it very useful in the near future..
Tredegar---> i am not dual booting. Two different pcs connected through ethernet and one of them to internet via adsl modem.. Even so thanx for your link.. I dont know how i didnt find it myself.. I think "search" is a little bit of... well, u know what i mean..
Now, what i did?? Nothing! For some reason there was no connection no matter what i did. So, i went to my desktop (XP) and clicked "New Connection". I set the parameters and chose to share internet. XP then had new ips, automatically chosen. In Ubuntu i clicked "Enable roaming mode". Still nothing. So i pinged them. From the Laptop (ubuntu) to the desktop (XP) and the same.. from the desktop pc to the laptop. After that everything was fine. Like it needed the ping to work. I cant find any reason to that, and i would very much like to know why, but for now i am just happy it works.
Thank u all for your help mates....
just one more question
: Could u give me a link with a good "dictionary" for technical terms? I've read the interviews (NVidia and Dotzelr) and i found many things i didnt know exactly what they were and made me fell a bit
