With that model the IP address by default will start at 192.168.0.100 and go to .50. What IP are you getting?

That's the public IP address, of course it'll be the same, as long as your network addresses are different, you're good.

I think you're simply having a problem with a lack of knowledge. Of course they're going to be the same ip address externally, after all, you only paid for one ip address. However, when you type ipconfig under the command prompt for either computer, you will notice that one should be 192.168.1.100 and the other 192.168.1.101, the internal ip addresses -they're both recieving the internet from the same connection, the router.

What is the exact problem?

No, people outside your network (your house if you will) will only see the external IP address of the router. This will be the same no matter what computer you use in your house.
