1. Do you restart samba after the config change?

2. Do NOT set "wins support = yes"!

	man smb.conf
		   wins support (G)
				  This  boolean  controls  if  the  nmbd(8)process in
				  Samba will act as a WINS server. You should not set
				  this to true unless you have a multi-subnetted net­
				  work and you wish a particular nmbd to be your WINS
				  server.   Note  that  you  should NEVER set this to
				  true on more than one machine in your network.

				  Default: wins support = no
