DNS change - browsing doesn't work

I apologize if this is not the correct forum for this question. I went
through the diagnosis.txt file and found this email address at the end.
I've been using Samba successfully for 4 years with very few problems. It's
a great product! However, I recently changed our DNS IP addresses and now I
can't browse my samba servers from Windows. I have a hunch it's a Windows
problem, not a Samba problem, but I've exhausted my troubleshooting options
and I'm hoping for some new ideas.
Here's the problem: After changing /etc/resolv.conf (and all PCs) to show
the new DNS IPs, my 'network neighborhood' errors out with "jjsheeran is
not accessible - the list of servers for this workgroup is not currently
available." It's acting like my workgroup name has changed, but it hasn't.
I deleted the browse.dat & wins.dat files and restarted samba. It recreated
the files, but I still can't see my samba servers. All other tests (1-9)
from the diagnosis.txt file pass with flying colors, so I'm pretty sure my
samba server is running fine.
I'd appreciate any ideas anyone out there may have.
