Unhappy Can't browse Network


Just finished installing F15 x64, and originally I was able to browse network shares,
After doing a yum update, and installing a few additional apps, none of which have any dealing with networking, I can't browse the network

In the popular file managers, I can see the machines, but can't see anything beyond that point.

I can't even open the local machine's shares.

when I do I see a unable to mount location , failed to retrieve share list from server

Both the FIREWALL and SELINUX are disabled, SMB/NMB are running, I can ping the machines and I can connect to the internet.

smb workgroup is set, security is set to user, smb has my user name/password added via the desktop app and I have a public share created /mnt/share with 777 permissions.

I've tried both fixed ip addresses and automatic.
I'm using the generic smb.conf file other that changing workgroup, netbios name and share

additionally, I can't mount a nfs share either,
mount /mnt/areca3 -t nfs
mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting

other machines can mount this share so it mujst be central to the new install

There must be one crucial step I've missed, but what is it?
