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.
