Browsing and the ability-to-browse (network neighborhood) are two
different things.  Change the NetBIOS node type of the workstations so
they only use WINS and make sure they have the WINS server value in
their network configuration (either statically or acquired by DHCP).  If
you don't know what the NetBIOS Node Type is then you need to read up on
it, or you'll never get this to work.

If this box is supposed to be the router between the two subnets make
sure basic IP functionality is up and running first; a box on one subnet
can ping a box on the other subnet.
