Homegroup Unable to Detect Users in Group

Hello. Firstly thank you for clicking on my thread. So this is what I want to do, I want PC1 to be able to drag/drop items like music,clips,bookmarks, and anything else to PC2. I want 1 single folder to be shared and the rest of the systems to be secured.

I have 2 computers both running Windows 7 x64 Ultimate. Here are the services of the computers. Please take note that anything I did on PC1 will mirror PC2.

I am able to create a homegroup and both computers are connected to the homegroup. ******** - Fast, Free Image Hosting and Photo Sharing
I get this error though when I click the homegroup on the left of the folder. This time both systems are booted up and are in the homegroup.

I have shared 1 folder on each computer with the "homegroup" and has read/write access to that folder so there is something there for the systems to look for.

Router is Linksys WRT54GL 802.11b/g with Tomato Firmware (not sure if this would cause problems)

Any idea on what my problem could be or the solution? Perhaps a program that just bypasses and does it automatically would be nice too :) I didn't think dragging and dropping a few items would be this hard lol.

Thank you for your reply. I actually figured out how to fix the issue about 20 minutes ago. I went through network instead of homegroup and it seemed to have worked. Thank you again for your reply :)
