After periodic wandering for solutions to file access to a NAS, I found a solution. I edited the hosts file to include local IP addresses and Names. The smb.conf file was checked to see all machines had the same 'Workgroup' name but to no avail.

The curious part is that even fresh installs would not work yet RythmBox, Banshee and the like would find and connect to shares on the NAS.
I even tried LinuxMint and Debian rolling release.
