Description

Everything was working fine on my home network and then I decided to enable a WINS server on my NAS and to instruct my router to assign the WINS server during DHCP assignment.
The Boxee Box would no longer access any of my samba shares, it would give me the error "could not access file, directory or device." To fix this I had to go into the settings and manually set the WINS Server address.
IMO Boxee Box should automatically apply the WINS server assigned during DHCP. More over it should also still support attempting to use broadcast method of discovery if WINS isn't working.
