Windows 7: How to play in a Local Area Network with a router

How to play in a Local Area Network with a router

We have a PC and a laptop. The PC is connected via a cable and the laptop, through wifi. Is there any way we could play LAN? preferably with no cables involved.
or if there is already a thread exactly solving my problem, I'd gladly be directed there.

The PC runs on windows 7 and the laptop on windows 8. Is that even possible?

Of course you can, you are already in one "LAN", just configure the game you're playing.

P.S. Configure or disable your firewalls :)
