There should be a network configuration tool under the system menu in ubuntu.

If you are connecting to a friends laptop without a router in between, you will need to use static IPs. Set one computer to and the other to The subnet should probably be on both.

If you are connecting to a large network with a router (like a hotel), you should just be able to use DHCP to connect. There is a box you can check to do this.

Not sure what lanscan is, but there are plenty of linux network mapping tools like nmap.
