If it's Virgin, the router will need the MAC address to be 'cloned' from the wired PC that works.

 

To find out the MAC address of the PC, open up a command prompt and type:

 

ipconfig /all <RETURN>

 

Make a note of the 'Physical Address' noted under Ethernet Adapter Local Area Connection.

 

Then log onto the console of your router, and change the MAC address of the router to the same as that of your wired machine. It may be in a section called 'MAC Address cloning'. If not, you can always google the model of router and ask about MAC cloning.

He'll have something as the Virgin modem has only one ethernet link.

 

Virgin do seem to register accounts against one MAC address

I was assuming he had one ethernet cable and was swapping the two computers over, hence the modem reboot
