Thank you all for the feedback. I think it is a router issue. After a firmware update things are back to normal except system-config-samba will not even open so I use webmin.
I also installed Bodhi on our home file server and things are running fine.
I only wish that samba could be featured in Bodhi in a more "formal" way, ie give users the option to run it on stratup, have the Public folder pre-setup to be shared, have a vanilla samba config file that will run as samba is started, offer system-config-samba in the app center and make sure it will run
Bodhi, in my opinion, is a "normal" linux distro. A stable and lean one, but totally capable of being used in place of other main stream distros as a desktop and or a home server, it just lacks the possibility of adding and managing users in a easy way, samba support and a better file manager that can be more personalized.
I have already installed Bodhi on three machines at home and if I have to summarize my frustrations it would be samba, and the inability of opening files as root easily.
Aside from that this is a really stable and lean distro that also looks great.
