Your computers already have different IPs otherwise your network would not work. Is the issue you want different online IPs? If so then like Acklan and Snapper said you would need to put a switch (or hub, but a switch would be better) between your modem and your router. Computers that required individual online IPs could then be connected either directly to the switch (up to 2) or one of them could connect to the router. You could still have a bunch of other PCs networked and having internet access going through the router but they would all appear to have the same IP address when online (the router's address).
Now I was wondering if there was a way of having the two computers on two different IPs
A router is not a hub but it may have a hub built in to it. If it has more than one LAN port then it has a built in hub or switch. What's the difference? In terms of function nothing but in term of operation when PCs are connected with a hub only one PC can communicate at any time whereas with a switch several communication links can operate simultaneously.
Isn't a router a hub?
