    Yes, each device on the network needs to have a unique address. If you are going to use static IP addresses on the clients make sure they are all unique (different last number), and the Gateway address and DNS server should be 192.168.0.1.

    Hey i fixed it! I made the other computer the same IP address as the host... What I did was: on the host computer, I right clicked on the wireless network connection 2 network, and then clicked properties, on the generals tab, I highlighted the "Internet protocol(TCP/IP)" and clicked properties, I then ticked the box that said "Use the following IP address" and the beside it I wrote, 192.168.0.1 and I also put in the Subnet Mask underneath it, and I put the same number as the IP address as the DNS server... On the Dial Up network, I left the get automatic IP and DNS option. That seemed to fix the Ip address. I will mark this question as solved, but if I need help with anything else, I'll be sure to ask here, and mark the question as unsolved. Thanks for the help! :)
