Both PC's will have a unique IP address otherwise the network doesn't know how to identify them - so yes they should be different but quite similar. The same with the Physical Address of the LAN card - each is a unique item and will have it's own ID.

Go to each PC and open command prompt (cmd.exe), then type following command to display correct IP address.
