After Installing 64-bit Cant connect to router

So im fairly useless with computer, so i thought i would try find some people who know what there doing to help

So i had 32-Bit installed and i got told 78LMTthat because my pc has 8g RAM 64 bit would be better seeing as RAM is being wasted, so i installed 64-bit and all was going good up until i tryed connecting to a network, it just does not find anything its as if my router just does not exist anymore, the ethernet cable is still plugged in and nothing else has changed.

After a full day of just looking at my pc hoping it would magically work again, i installed some drivers which came with the pc and it managed to get me to connect to 'Local area connection' but still no sign of anything else.

As i said im fairly useless when it comes to this stuff some hopefully someone can aid me.

PC MODEL; GA-78LMT-S2P

Not seeing any missing drivers . When you try to open up a browser what error message do you get ? The icon on the sys tray ( near the time ) shows it is connected . From the Computer to the router is the Ethernet cable plugged into the first Ethernet port on the router ?

Connect router wirelessly to main router
Recently I bought a TP-Link WR841N router and, unaware of what it needed, there had to be an ethernet cable coming from the main router (BT Homehub 3) for it to work. Is there any way I can connect these two wirelessly? I don't mind whatever way I connect it to my PC.
