      If connecting by ethernet cable you just plug it into any spare socket on the router. It doesn't matter which number it is.

      No software or set up is required.

      The router should just 'see' the second PC but if not, just restart the newly connected one.

      You will need to set up file/printer sharing (if that's what you're after) but for the net it will work straight away.
