If you buy a router, just plug both computers in to same router with a lan cable and if they both belong to same workgroup sharing will be really easy. To change your workgroup click start-right click computer- properties- click change settings- on new window click change and type what you want your workgroup to be called and click ok and restart.

Possibly, I'm not 100% sure I don't play to many computer games. Let me know if it does or doesn't work.
