Both your LAN PC's need to have IP addresses in the same subnet as the LAN side of your router. No two computers can use the same address, but they do have to be within the same subnet.

The simple solution is to enable DHCP on the network interface of both PC's. Once you enable it, they'll get the correct TCP/IP settings from the router's DHCP server and be able to communicate with each other as well as access the internet.

The point of a SOHO Router is to allow multiple LAN computers to access the internet through a single non-private IP address.

If both of your clients are using DHCP to get their TCP/IP settings from your router, they cannot have the same IP.

Besides, the way IPv4 is setup it's impossible to have two computers use the same IP so I don't know what you are talking about.

What exactly has the same IP address?
