Both can become infected when there are shared media,the virus will attach itself to any replicate itself to the other network,by way of a open port or access via programs that the virus has diguised itself as a program.exe in the C:\Windows\Directory or the Email program that is being accessed.
It is stated that using the eradicating tool that you disconnect the infected computer from the network.

Yes, both can be infected. The network connected to the internet has the potential to infect those computers.... any computer on the network has the chance to infect all the other computers on the network.

The addressing scheme does not matter. Once a computer is infected, the virus/worm multiplies in all directions.
