Hi Terrie

What Windows versions are all the PCs using?

What is the make and model of the router you have bought?

The main PC is connected to the internet how? is it by an ethernet/network cable or wireless?

The additional PC have you plugged this into the router with an ethernet/network cable or connected by wirless, thats if the PC is wireless capable, many if not all Laptops are, desktops are not in the main Wireless, so need an ethernet cable plugged into one of the LAN ports.
