SMB server broadcasting to wrong address

I recently installed a ISDN router that I use as a DCHP server. After I 
installed it I noticed that my Linux SMB share that I had set up for each 
user (windows and mac clients) is not accesible anymore.

I can access the shares from a windows client if I map the drive manually. 
But I would like to avoid doing that. The Mac clients simply cannot access 
the shares.

I did some troubleshooting and I found out that the SMB server is 
broadcasting to a different broadcasst address than the one the ethernet 
card is set to.

So the question would be, how do I force the Samba to broadcast to an 
specific address.

Thanks in advance.
