Set the Wireless Network Adapters to connect to an "Ad Hoc" network and enter an SSID (network name) into both adapters. It can be a bit fiddly to get them talking initially but if both adapters are active, scanning for "available networks" should eventually get them to connect.

If you are using "Internet Connection sharing" in a "host" PC, this will configure its adapter with the fixed IP address and the "client" PC will get its IP address by DHCP from the "host". Otherwise, you will need to configure the two adapters with fixed IP addresses.
