OK. The problem is solved. The problem was not with samba.
The wireless subnet is controlled by a different group of people,
and after a few experiments, I found out that all out going traffic
to port 139 is dropped. So, I was able to contact my SAMBASERVER
on port 22 (ssh) but not on 139.

Till I get the firewall opened up, I have asked the user to do all
NETBIOS resolutions locally through LMHOSTS.
