I think you mean you need to be on the same subnet. Being on the "same IP" will not work. If you have both devices linked to the schools network you may or may not be able to change your IPs, but I would be surprised if they were not all on the same subnet, or at least on routed subnets. Especially if you use both on the wifi from the school. If one is wired and the other wifi, the school may purposely keep them separate for security.
There is more than one way to skin a cat as they say. To provide you the 'best' solution, I need to know more about your network and how the 2 devices are connected.
The quick and dirty answer to your question though; you change the iPhone's IP at... Settings > WiFi > Connected Network > Static IP
You will need to get a static IP from the school's IT department (if available) along with the router IP, DNS, and subnet mask.
Thanks for the help, both devices are on the same subnet, purely with different IP's. Both are wireless but i know there are some wired connections within the college, would this suggest that a static IP would be available? I can find out tomorrow anyway. Both devices seem to be connecting through the same router also.
