Depends on your connection. If it is through cable then a lot of cable providers (may go for DSL too but i have rarely used it so do not know) also gather the MAC address of your NIC. If you try to connect with a different NIC the connection fails.If you took out the network card from the working box and installed it in another of the machines. my guess is you would connect just fine.

Try plugging the second computer into the same network jack that the first one was plugged in to. It may be that the second jack is either dead or on a different subnet.
Also, may sure you used the same subnet mask, default gateway and DNS server values as on the first computer.

I believe you are trying to use the same IP address on both machines to get access to Internet. You cannot have both machine using same IP address, but if you want both machines able to get onto Internet access, you need to get a router box such asDlink box or any other router firewall box to enable NAT. Hopefully this help.

The answers you got are true. But, you may also check if the DC uses DHCP, and maybe your IP address is reserved - and that means > a single specified MAC can have that address. So, you assign that IP address to another machine but the machine don'thave the rights to use that address. Try to check with ipconfig /all what address you have on the machine.

What OS are you using? You may be able to turn on Internet connection sharing and use a private address on the second computer as well as a second address for the NIC (remember, the OS is what listens to the traffic and decides whether to read a packet or not, therefore you can have a multi-homed computer using one NIC, install a second instance of the same NIC on your computer and configure it with a different address) on the first computer to match it with the same network/subnet as the second and allow your Dell box to act as a Proxy server for the Internet.
