When the world was young, Rich_Jones at wmg.com carved some runes like this:

I don't know if this will help, but you probably shouldn't use the 
"remote announce" parameter.  Samba will automatically bind to (and 
announce on) the first ethernet device.  I assume you're sharing 
with an internal (private) network and using the linux box as a 
firewall/gateway for internet access.  I wouldn't put any ipfwadm 
rules in a startup script until you have all the kinks worked out; 
just flush all the ipfwadm rules and check the browsing.  If 
browsing still doesn't work, then comment out the "remote announce"
