Question I can't view anything else on my network from openSUSE 11.4

I have openSUSE 11.4 installed on my laptop. Not sure that they particularly matter, but the specs are as follows:
Intel Core2 Duo @ 1.6
NVIDIA GeForce Go 7300
Broadcom 3411 WLAN integrated

I also have a windows computer, two DirecTV devices, a PS3 and random other items on this network. My windows PC is capable of seeing any of these devices that matter (relatively speaking) except for my laptop and otherwise works fine.

My laptop however, cannot see ANYTHING on the network. I have tried configuring samba and App-armor as described in other forums but to no avail. I'm sure that it is something simple that I am overlooking, but I'm not sure where else to look.

Somebody please help. I am (again relatively speaking) a newb, but I consider myself in no way to be a "noob" (some may find those terms synonymous, but I disagree). Anyway, any help would be appreciated.

Hi, welcome to LQ!

You failed to mention how your laptop is connected, and whether
it has any form of connectivity, i.e., while unable to see the
windows box it can actually browse the web...

Oops, I was in a hurry and failed to mention that pertinent information.

My laptop is connected to the wireless connection and can browse the web fine. I can point my browser to the router IP and access the interface for it as well. My windows PC is connected via a wired connection to the same router that my laptop is connected to wirelessly and also has the same functionality. They just don't see each other.

Edit: When I try to access the internal network (through Gnome file browser) I get the error message, "Unable to mount location: Failed to retrieve share list from server"
