    Add this to the [global] section of the /etc/samba/smb.conf

    netbios name = <hostname>
    name resolve order = bcast host
    Then either restart the smbd and nmbd services or reboot the system.

    You should now be able to browse the network shares.
    Yes, I know it's traditionally bad form to post on a thread this old.

    I received the same error after an update on 12.04 this past week. Prior to the update, I had no problem navigating to my NAS or other Windows 7 machines on my local network. After the update, clicking on Browse Network or using the Connect to Server form resulted in the following error:

    Could Not Display network:/// 
    Error: DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. 
    Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken. 
    Please select another viewer and try again.
    Thank you for your instructions.

    So why did you do it?

    Start a new thread and post you problem there.

    From the forum rules:
    If a post is older than a year or so and hasn't had a new reply in that time, instead of replying to it, create a new thread. In the software world, a lot can change in a very short time, and doing things this way makes it more likely that you will find the best information. You may link to the original discussion in the new thread if you think it may be helpful.
