yes. different IP for each computer.
subnet & gateway(router) should always be the same.

example:

pc1
IP: 192.168.1.101
subnet: 255.255.255.0
gateway: 192.168.1.1

pc2
IP: 192.168.1.102
subnet: 255.255.255.0
gatway: 192.168.1.1

Also, if you were using a Torrent client on each.
You would pick a different PORT for each client to chat on
example:
pc1 uses port: 48450
pc2 uses port: 45460

then in the router - make an entry to port forward each port to each IP
torrent port: 48450 --> 192.168.1.101
torrent port: 48460 --> 192.168.1.102
