In his landmark book, A Dictionary of German-Jewish Surnames (published by Avotaynu, 2005), Lars Menk includes the name Walber. He explains the etymology: "Possibly borrowed from West German surname 'Walber' ..." [page 748] So it seems that Walber is another of those German surnames that identified with both gentiles and Jews, but it is not an exclusively Jewish name, or a German name identified mostly with Jews.
