What happens if two PCS in same network have different IP address?

So what happen when 2 PCS in same network have different IP address?

Example:

192.168.1.1
192.168.10.1

They have to have unique IP addy's for it to work.

Change #2 to 192.168.1.2 or 192.168.1.10 or better yet, setup the networks to use DHCP so the IP addresses are assigned automatically.

They are in different subnets, and they won't be able to communicate unless you set the subnet mask to 255.255.0.0.
