WINS Server: Doesn't Recognize All Clients?

I figured out that by opening the ports to the network's address (0 at the end), I can now see everything in the mainrouter section of the LAN. Nothing in clientrouter is showing anymore, which right now, is just one machine. My guess is that the WINS server doesn't know about the machine on clientrouter, but it knows about every other machine. What is wrong here? Is this really this problem?

See this: for more info.

I just accidently made more progress and got everything to work! I was tweaking my smb.conf file, so that I could set up a new server service. I was also tweaking my routers, so I don't know which one fixed it. It didn't fix right away. It was not working when I left home this morning. But when I returned home today, I could see ALL of my servers in my workgroup. I don't know why it started working then, but it did. If you want me to post some more information on what my smb.conf file is or anything, please tell me, and I'll post it.
