Since you have all the necessary hardware and have an internet connection I suggest you review your network connections and establish a home or public profile and establish what kind of sharing privelages you want.
You already have a LAN established, you now just need to set up if you want to share your pc's.

Ok thanks Adrian.
Please tell me how can I review my network connections and establish a home or public profile and establish sharing privelages etc ?

Please understand that what I want is simple start sharing between Windows 7 and Window Xp PCs in whatever the way it is possible like, LAN, workgroup, domain or any other.

Thanks again
