Normally you don't need to install any new software when you connect a
computer to a router. Are both cables the same? Tried swapping them over?

Have you been able to get the problem PC to connect to the internet without
a router (eg direct to the modem)?. Make sure you have the firewall on the
PC enabled first. Once that works then try the router in the path.
