The issue as you have explained it means that a dual router set up using the same host means there is a conflict between the 2 routers trying to set up a dynamic address. Since both are attempting to set up an address from the IP, the ip cannot accomplish this. As Chev suggesyed, a switch will do this using only 1 router with as many PC's as you like. You will need straighthru cabling also.
