You can only have one roscore active (and configured) at a time. In case of the turtlebot the roscore should always run on the turtlebot itself to keep latencies and actual network usage low.

If you wanted to use a roscore on your workstation to work, while the turtlebot isn't running, you have to change your ROS_MASTER_URI to the name or IP of your workstation.

Dont forget to source the .bashrc again after the change, or restart your open consoles.

Seems to me that you may have not properly set up your ROS network. I wrote a tutorial that might help you

http://www.instructables.com/id/Getting-Started-with-ROS-Robotic-Operating-Syste/?ALLSTEPS

But I would also look more closely at the ROS Wiki and double check your settings. If you check your bashrc with gedit "gedit ~/.bashrc" what do your ROS settings look like?
