Answer:

Open terminal and run the following command to edit samba config file

sudo gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf

Look for these lines Then change

wins support = no
name resolve order = lmhosts host wins bcast

and change them to look something like this:

wins support = yes
name resolve order = wins lmhosts hosts bcast

Now restart  samba

sudo service smbd restart

And is done.
