TKIP is basically an outdated encryption that sometimes doesn't play well with the final wireless N draft.

You should try AES encryption in the routers settings then delete the old wireless profile and create a new one designating the new settings. For best possible wireless N speeds you should use the 802.11n Only settings rather than mixed.

Well my router is back from 2006/2007 and I cannot see the AES encryption from the security list only TKIP. I did remember the tech guy said back then about a whitelist system or something similar enable on my router so that even if someone knew my password their device won't be able to connect but I'm not sure if this is what causing my problem?

I would try updating the firmware for this router in that case.

Alright I'll do that and look online the pdf for the features/troubleshooting as I lost the box.

The routers model number should be on the router someplace. If you can post the manufacture and model number I may be able to find firmware for it.

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.

Router Password?
OK, not quite a Windows 7 issue, but since this appears to be such a knowledgeable place I thought I'd ask here first - a client has a router that someone else installed, and who is no longer available through any means, apparently. They have a Draytek Vigor 2820 router, which works well, and also...
