to see some shares you should use SMB://<computer name>, to mount it, use SMB://<computer name>/<share name>. to view the complete network, I think SMB:// would work but I'm not sure about that...

try going to the console and typing
smbclient -L SERVER, where SERVER is the the name of the computer you are trying to access. if it works , it will tell you that it got a positive name query response from the computer's ip. after that you should be able to see all your shared docs, files, etc. To access a shared doc or file, type this
smbclient ' \\computername\shareddocs ' , where computer name is the name of the computer name that you are trying to access and sharedocs is the name of the shareddocs, files, Cdrive, etc that you want to access. hope this help
