Based on your description that is lacking in helpful details whatsoever, the above diagram is what I imagine your current network connection is. Please set up everything like this:

  • Set your modem to router mode. Most broadband modems ships in bridge mode so you have to look up your broadband modem and find out how to set it to router mode.
  • After setting it to router mode you have to enable DHCP so that it automatically assigns IP addresses to any computers attached to the network switch.
  • With DHCP enabled, you can then set each computer's IP address to "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically".

Hello,

You cannot use the same IP address to 2 different computers in the same network. I will suggest you to use.

Obtain an IP Address Automatically instead of Use Following IP Address.
