Is the ethernet port ( network port ) working on the second PC ? Have a look in Device Manager to see if it is listed , even though it is there physically it may not be enabled in the bios .

I see what you mean now , having read your duplicate thread , connect the patch lead to the router ( port 1 ) from your second PC , no need to connect it to the other PC at all .
