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?

but say on forums when im on laptop will it show a diff ip than when im on my pc?

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.
