This seems like an issue with the server.  Once it has offered one machine the 
address, and it has accepted it, it should offer it to the other.

Can you give more details of your router which is supposidly offering these 
addresses.  Also, each client machine should have indication of the exchange 
with the dhcp server in /var/log/syslog.  Can you post it.
