Windows 7: Setting up a Home Network

Setting up a Home Network

I am trying to help a friend setup a desktop and laptop for a home network using a wireless router.
Both computers are using Windows 7, what she wants is to share files and printer between them.
My own setup is this way but unfortunately it was done for me, so I am in the dark also.
I have looked in the Tutorial section but was unable to find anything.

Thanks
jack
