I have similar problems using a Linux client connected to a NT4 server 
over Shrewsoft. The connection sometimes takes 5 minutes to actually 
give me a directory. I have not determined if the problem is with the 
connection or with the aircard and aircard service I am using.

I suggest attempting to connect and browse and wait 10 minutes to see if 
you have a directory or not. Maybe we have a common problem. I suspect 
it is related to DNS not working properly.
