As you have a "Wireless Modem/Router" both computers connect directly to it (either by ethernet cable or "wirelessly") and by doing so, both have internet access.

From what you've posted, they should already both be sharing (via the router) your internet connection.

Yep, both computers are connected to same network. You should be able to ping computer B from computer A. If you try to share files, have a look on this simple file sharing click here or share file with user/group permission click here articles. Don't forget to permit file sharing traffic if you have enabled firewall on computers.
