New router and cannot connect properly

I got a new router and it has full bar connection, but it always have trouble connecting.
Right now I'm on a different person's connection because of it.
But I'd like to connect to my own connection.

I have a comstar Wireless N router.
I used to have a Gateway G router.
It's only my laptop that's having problems with the internet connection.
I have a HP G61

Basically... what happens is:
Whenever I connect. It connects for maybe ten minutes up to an hour before it disconnects me.
Then when I disconnect it doesn't connect back.

Hi KOSSIT, lets cover the basics.

1) Are there any driver issues that can be seen in Device Manager?
2) What is your wireless network security, is it WEP, WPA etc? and have you configured W7's wireless connection to use the same?
3) Have your tried resetting the router, and recreate your wireless network?

@aem
It tells me the cord is either broken or not connected.
I'm looking right at it. It's connected and it's not broken.

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.
