First of all , I want to thanks all of you.

This problem happened on my client computer , I think the problem is from the firewall . Tomorrow I have appointment with him , so I will see what happen with him , and if some thing go wrong I will inform you.

By the way , I Made some test on my network , and because my firewall was off , It works with me fine , I tried to make it on , and same problem of my client come up. and after I made exceptions to both sqlservr.exe and sqlbrowser.exe . It works fine.  
It most probably is firewall problem.
