Thanks for using JustAnswer. My name is Andrew, I will do whatever I can to answer your question and will be back in a moment with my reply.

If you are connecting to a home router, then yes the IP address should all be different. if you get something like 169.254.x.x then you are not getting an ip from the dhcp server

i share a communal router

you may have to go into the router and make sure it has enough IP addresses to give out
