Type "recurse" at the smbclient prompt. This toggles directory recursion on or off depending on the current state. The only thing you need to watch out for is the "mask". The default is blank equivalent to *. To suppress prompting, type "prompt" and this will toggle prompting on and off.

I'm not telling you what to do... but wouldn't you rather mount the share using an fstab entry?
