Are the machines on your network configured so that NetBIOS is bound to 
only a single protocol?

Check all of your Windows systems.  If any have NetBIOS bound to multiple 
protocols (TCP/IP, NetBEUI, NWLink are the options) then you will have 
browsing problems.  Check that first and see if it fixes the problem.
