The house router.
I may have, following the example:
It is not important.
But if you use names, something will have to try to convert the names to
IPs. If you have a name such as “myhouse.com”, mandatorily that name has
to be asked on internet. And in fact, the name does exist!

myhose.com has address 22.214.171.124
myhose.com has address 126.96.36.199

Notice that I’m not saying that this is your problem. What I say is that
if you choose names for your computers in such a way, it might cause
that kind of problem.
Possibly, your network is configured to ask names to the DNS cache
server that is typically on the router. However, the router is itself
configured to ask a DNS in Internet… and this will fail if there is no
Thus, maybe you have to change your shares to use the IP of the server
instead of its name.
On the other hand, maybe setting up WINS in the Linux machine helps. I
don’t remember how this is done, though, it should be deprecated.
