Network browsing problem

I have a Windows network with 6 different IP segments.  One segment does not show up in a browser but I can ping it, tracert it, remote control computers on it, map drives to it and all network enabled programs operate from it just fine.  From that segment you can't browse any other part of the network.

Are you using a domain or a workgroup?

Are you running WINS?  If so, do all the computer have the same server configured as the WINS server?  If not, have you made entries to the LMHOSTS file on the working computers that specify the <1B> server?

Yes, I'm running WINS due to a few Win98 machines that are left on the network.  That fixed it.  Thanks.
