Network Shares

I have a toshiba e740 pocket pc and have been trying to browse network shares via the built in wireless lan, and i can't seen to be able to view any of the other computers on my home network. I have no problem connecting to these computers using active sync, or telnet services, but when i try to view the network there is nothing there. It either says cannot find server if i use "laptop" or the ip address of the computer i am looking for, or if i use "\\laptop" like i would on my desktop it asks for a password, once the password is entered it tries to connect and goes right back to the password screen. Has anyone else had this problem, or maybe has some ideas for a solution? I have also noticed when i check the netgear wireless router for connected devices that there is no name associated with the pocket pc like there is with the other connected devices, only an ip address.

routers do not forward broadcasts and broadcast is used when u try to view network from ur pocket gear.

<once the password is entered it tries to connect and goes right back to the password screen>
change the username and password to one which is already setup on the network

I have tried a number of different user names and passwords that are set up on my network. Will a wireless gateway or wireless access point work rather than a wireless router for  my Pocket PC.
