Do you have a WINS server on that subnet?  Are you registering with a WINS
server?  Are you acting as a Browse Master?

If you're the only system on that subnet that's broadcasting NetBeui traffic
then you probably need to act as a local browse master.  If you're not the
only one on that subnet, then you may need to advertise yourself to
a WINS server.
