Do you have a Wireless Network Adapter installed in the PC and is it listed in Device Manager without a yellow error indication?

you need to give more info about your pc. Is it a laptop or a desktop?

Is this the first time you have put the adapter in your computer?

what is it your trying to do? Get on the net with both make a network?

Run the home and small office wizard on both BUT they must be in the same workgroup, the Pcs can be called anything.

Make a folder shared on both and that should be it.
