some times the cable connection would've registered the mac addr of ur desktop so it would not let to go online with laptop which has a different mac addr........ask your isp to release a registered mac addr to your laptop or just get a router so that u can use both laptop and desktop at the same time

hi there,

you can set it manually

go to control panel

double click on network connections

Under LAN or High-Speed Internet Double click the enabled device

move to tcp/ip

then configure it manually

enter the ip address you wanted

subnet mask :255.255.255.0

Thanks
desktop and laptop

You can't use same IP on 2 computers at the same time, it will cause IP conflict problem. If you wanna have 2 computers to use single Internet connection, you should get a wireless or wired router ans set up a simple network to meet your need. The router is pretty cheap nowadays.

You can take a look on this wireless network or wired network setup tutorial, should be able to give you more ideas.

Hope able to help.
