Homegroup and a wifi repeater

i have a netgear router which doesn't cover, wirelessly, well my house. I've just added a d-link DAP-1360 AP as a repeater. Since I've added it, the coverge problems are history, all the computers, wired and wireless, are able to connect to the internet. However, homegroup doesn't work any more. I can't share files between the computers. How can I fix it?

Suggested WiFi Repeater?
Hey everyone. I used to have an old wifi but it's that old the software I used to use to set it up doesn't even run under 7. This isn't really my problem though since I was pretty sure I'd have to update anyway. It's unlikely it would be able to repeat a signal from an N router let alone use...
