I connected an old router of mine to another one via power line adapters to try and boost reception, I set it all up perfectly, my nexus 4 and nexus 7 now enjoy much better internet in my bedroom, however my Windows 8.1 laptop connects to the router but says "no internet access". Any help on how to fix this?

Did you restart the affected laptop? That's usually the problem. Restart the upstream router first and let it come up, then restart each downstream device in order.

If not that, hardwire laptop to last hop in router-chain with Ethernet cable and check connectivity. 2nd: disable wifi encryption and check connectivity. 3rd: Test USB wifi adapter with laptop.

Okay cheers, only problem is the last router only has a single Ethernet which is used by the power line adapter. I've restarted it all, reset both routers, and it seems all windows laptops in my house are affected. Linux is working fine
