Is "Workstation" service enabled on the server?
The correct WINS server is set on the server?
And to connect with \\<server's IP address> is success?
Firewall on the server is potentially blocked the neccesary
connection. Have you checked the firewall settings on the server?

You can set an entry statically like:
"problemserver#20" 0 w.x.y.z 66R
#20 means NetBIOS suffix. 66R means:
0x60 (registered by H-node) +
0x04 (active) +
0x02 (static) +
