Too confusing. You need to give a better description of the wires in each box and what they are connected to. If you have 3 way switches then you must have at least 3 wires in the switch box.

Sport - it's very difficult explaining 3-way wiring...but a picture is worth a thousand words....go to HandymanWire ( and that moderator has illustrations showing how to wire a 3-way switch.
