Check the workgroup name, the netmask (you can ping even if netmask is
different, but you can't browse).
Set up a valid guest account on samba "guest account = ftp".
Make just one pc on the network the master browser.

On samba "encrypt password = yes", then 
smbpasswd -a <win username>

nbtstat -n
on every win machine, and see if you find some weird differences/output.

nmblookup -A ip.of.samba
on samba.
