I am sorry I have no answer to your question.
A ftp server isn't found here, too.
The SMB browsing is really very extremely slow.
I can compare with MS Explorer and I would say that Explorer is at least 
40 times faster in browsing the SMB directories.
But I think it is not only a problem of Nautilus. If you use the smbfs 
there are many lags and waits. I've never seen this before.
Smbfs was always fast.
