Your subject mentions Ubuntu. Which Sugar LiveCD did you install?
Which Ubuntu version are you running?
Secondly, please check what the value of the jabber server field is:
in a Terminal activity, run "sugar-control-panel -g jabber". I suspect
that the LiveCD has an incorrect default value there, and you should
set it to the same value as the XO (which would actually set them both
to be a non-existant server, rather than a partially-working one).
You can set the jabber server with "sugar-control-panel -s jabber
<servername>" and then you need to restart Sugar on that machine.
They should then both "fail" to connect to a jabber server, and see
each other with the serverless collaboration mode on your wireless
Let me know if that works or not.
