Why Apple Airport Router is Not Working on My Windows 7 OS

I have Windows 7 and am trying to connect to an Apple Airport router but am unsuccessful. I can connect to the internet directly through the ethernet cord. But my brother 's computer does not have trouble with this router. In fact, the internet speed is quite good. Does anyone know how to resolve this problem?
