Is this a wireless router, if so do you have DHCP configured so you get more than one IP address?

Have you tried to disconnect the laptop and then plug the desktop in the same port to see if that works, to me it looks like a DCHP do an ipconfig /all from the command line via Run then type CMD and check the ip and post back.
