    Do you have a modem that uses an ethernet connection? You cant stick a phone line into an ethernet card, they're not compatible.

    how do you intend to connect to the net?

    I'm trying to connect via cable through the router on my main computer. I'm not trying to put a phone line in it for dial up.

    Considerably more information about your set-up would be really useful in trying to help you.
    Make/model of modem, router. OSs on PCs. Cable provider. How the kit is connected. The output of the ipconfig/all command from the PCs would also help. Any firewalls kicking about in there? etc, etc etc.
