hi,

my laptop is connected to a small LAN of about 10 PC. After the attempt of configuring a printer I must have changed something in the connection settings, in fact now I can navigate internet but cannot see other PCs, I can ping the gateway and server but not the other PCs.
The only difference I can see is the "network bridge" which is now present under connections, but probably it wasnt before (i am not sure). The IP settings are ok, everything is fine... what can it be?
If I erase the network bridge, amoung the connections, am I going to do a disaster or i will just ripristinate the original and working connections? which are now present but seems to have secondary importance.
In a few words, this bridge is creating me some problems.
thanks!

If you didn't have a bridge before then no deleting the bridge won't cause more problems. This may not fix the overall problem though so if deleting the bridge does not restore proper connectivity please let us know.
