Windows 7: Weird networking problems

Weird networking problems

I have 3 computers. The 1st computer has a wired connection to the 1st wireless router. The 2nd computer has a wireless connection to the 1st router via Wireless LAN card. and the 3rd computer has a wired connection to the 2nd wireless router. The 2nd wireless router is connected to the 1st wireless router via repeater bridge with DD-WRT.

The problem is the 1st and 2nd computer connect to the homegroup just fine, but the 3rd computer can't connect to the homegroup, yet all the computers and see each other on the workgroup network just fine and I can share files as long as I share individual folders.

Also the 1st and 2nd computer can use remote desktop between each other just fine, but the 3rd computer can't be used via remote desktop, yet I can use the 3rd computer to use the first 2 computers with remote desktop.

Any ideas on what this might be?

BTW, Computer 1 and 2 are Windows 7 32bit and Computer 3 is Windows 7 64bit. But I get the same problem when all computers are 32bit.
