i am attaching a 2nd pc to my router with a lead. the main pc is configured with my isp dialup will i have to do the same with the second pc? it is only temp to get all the updates on a fresh install as my friend does not have bb. or is it just a case of plugging it into the router and entering a network password as i do for the wifi laptop, not got the friends pc yet just getting my facts right in advance.

you should have entered your ISP login details into its configuration settings. That means the router will automatically establish the connection - you don't need to do it again on either PC.

Just plug the second computer into one of the router's LAN ports, and provided the router is online you'll be able to use the internet.
