Hi I have a PC wirelessely connected to a sky router and another PC connected to this one through a patch cable, I cant get the second PC to connect getting the following error messages when i try to repair connection.
"cannot renew IP address"
"cannot flush ARP cache"
any ideas?

the patch cable should go into the router not the other pc

You would need a "crossover" cable to connect via other machine.
