It's worth checking that your Internet Browser on PC 2 isn't set to 'Work Offline'. Look under File>Work Offline.

I have a feeling this might be an MTU issue as described here click here

However I suggest using DrTCP to edit the MTU rather than the registry click here

1454 is usually recommended, but if not try 1400.
