Problem setting up LAN for gaming with 2 PCs

I have bought 3 good PCs so that i can connect them together to set up a LAN and start gaming between them. I would like to multiplayer with Flight Sim FSX and also with Lock On Flaming Cliffs. All the PCs have Windows Home Premium and a have a belkin modem router to try and set up a LAN between the PCs. I have not connected the router to the internet, since I don't what to use any internet for these computers. When I go to multiplayer in both games, neither PC seems to be able to see each other. Could anybody help please. Thanks

Thank you, but this site did not help. I have the 2 PCs networked, since i can see files between PCs. However, when i set up a host on one machine, when i go to the second machine, it says it cannot see the host machine, even when i type in the IP address.
