While projectfocus is correct, the statement I made would have worked also since you would not have had the desktop connected while the notebook computer was connected. I would in fact follow projectfocus' advise and assign a unquie internal IP address to each computer.
If you want to use both computers at the same time you could, use a patch cable from the primary computer to a 4 port hub or switch, and a patch cable to each secondary computer, your notebook and desktop. With each secondary computer setup with it's own unquie internal IP address you should have no problem accessing the internet with either.
Good observation projectfoucs.
