You might want to consider enabling and configurins WINS for your
network, rather than rely on the serendipity of broadcast browsing.
On a more practical note, I've had similar problems when some of the
Windows Clients installed Norton Internet Security... one computer
with the Internet firewall would, for reasons unknown, interfere with
windows network browsing for the whole network.

When I restart the Samba Services apparently everything starts to work fine again. I tried changing OS Level from 65 to 70 but still no success. Since a few days, the problem seems to happen every 24 hours and I have to restart the services everyday. Previously it used to occur every 7 days or so.
