You need to get a broadband router in order to avoid this problem. I could go into gory details if you'd like, but the basics is as follows. Your ISP is only handing out one IP with your internet connection. This IP is being flipflopped between the two devices. If you get a router, this problem will go away since the router will use the ISP's IP and will hand out private LAN IPs for the different devices that are attached to it.
