Wired router won't connect to computer/internet.

I bought a Trendnet TEW-652BRP wireless router off of some guy on Craigslist to use as a wireless repeater. I'm not too tech savvy but I know the basics.
I plugged one end of an ethernet cable into my existing router through one of the numbered slots on both routers in order to install the router. It did not detect the router or something and none of the lights on the repeater router came on plus it won't let me put in the repeater routers ip address into the web page bar thingy to configure it.
I then tried to to connect the repeater router to the computer and modem using the same setup the working router was hooked up. The internet is down like I have nothing plugged in.
I feel like I am just being stupid and this is an easy problem. I have followed the quick installation guide found online to no avail.
Note: The router is version 1.0R or something along those lines and Trendnet's site says it is discontinued. Not sure if that makes a difference or not.
Any help would be much appreciated.
