Windows 7: New Router Works with Mac OSX but not Windows 7

New Router Works with Mac OSX but not Windows 7

My old wireless router went on the fritz so I exchanged the old one for a new one that is exactly the same model. I brought it home and set it up on my Mac running OSX and it worked perfectly. However, when I try to use the wireless on my Windows 7 based machine, as well as on the Bootcamp partition running Windows 7 on my Mac, the computer says that I am connected to the internet, but the internet browser cannot load any web pages. It remains stuck with the message "Loading web page." I am confused because the computers running windows worked fine with the previous router, but not with the new one. Am I missing something?

How old is this router? Has it been a while since you have rebooted it? Turn off all devices that connect to your router, then unplug the routers power supply for a minute or so, then plug it back in. When the router is fully booted, start up Windows and see if the problem persists.

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.
