Use "testparm -v" to get all of the parameters (even the ones you don't
explicitly set). Unless you were using multiple backend values (which you
most likely are not since you haven't set it) there is little reason for
someone to point you in that direction. You're probably using smbpasswd as
the backend which isn't going to break your network.

I don't see where the "character set" problem occurs, maybe you can drop those
lines (the 3 with charset in them) and just use the defaults.

Make sure you have a valid /etc/samba/smbusers file and that it contains lines
root = administrator
nobody = guest
Where "nobody" (or your equivalent) is a valid unix account that the guest
account gets mapped to.

You can set those globally but I wouldn't troubleshoot with those in place.

Small home network probably doesn't need such overkill. At least troubleshoot
without "hosts allow".

Again, I suugest you troubleshoot without turnng browsing off.
