strange share issue on ftp server

I have a server I use mainly for cron job backups via ftp. I have 2 NICs in it one with a public static ip plugged directly into the gateway(w/ built in switch) and another NIC with a static local IP plugged into a 24 port switch which is plugged into my router (both WAN and LAN connection) and also into the switch on the gateway.

Problem I had network shares that where working perfectly prior to the dual NIC setup (when it was only on the LAN) now I cannot access these shares via the standard "\\<computername>\<share>" protocol. I have to "\\<local IP address>\<share>" instead. What changed, and how do I fix it?

here's the NIC configurations
NOTE: for the local configuration I only specified a subnet mask and preferred IP address everything else I left blank

it pings perfectly fine by the name and returns the local address (192.168.1.3) which is wierd cause sometimes if I go to the windows network and then open the workgroup it will show "inv-rbs" (the name of the machine) then if I try to open it, it locks up and can't fine the path....
it pings fine also by the static public WAN address

the stupid machine is even returned by a net view command then if I net view \\inv-rbs it can't find it. I've been reading http://technet.micro...y/bb727013.aspx but so far it hasn't clued me in on anything
