Trying To Solve File Sharing Over Wifi Home Network

First, I installed Samba (and a bunch of dependencies) and followed the usual
configurations to enable shares. It turns out that Ubuntu has a GUI tool for this,
in Nautilus itself. So people like me can just right-click a folder.

If you don't have the necessary package for sharing files over LAN, Ubuntu will
give you a prompt. Nice of them.

I checked my router configuration. I have UPnP and File Sharing ticked. These
same configuration worked before with Fedora 23.

I checked my smartphone with Android 5 but my shares aren't showing up in
File browser even after a refresh or a scan of the network. Nope.
