The passwords are same in both PC and both says successful join

but you cannot see the other PC in the homegroup node? did you run the troubleshooter?
Yes Mate, I Ran the troubleshooter on my B PC (second PC i.e laptop) and everything seems to be working fine....

if you are in a homegroup, also check if the PC is actually sharing anything to the homegroup by looking at the homegroup control panel, and seeing if pictures/music/videos/documents/printers are checked.
Yes mate, i checked this in both PC those all options are selected...

What make/model router do you have,
I Got D-LINK Router, Model: DIR-300

do you know if both Wifi and Wired are on the same IP range (subnet?)
Now this one i dont know... but if i can use internet on PC B... from PC A via wifi that might shows its connected ???

if you can see PC A from PC B's network node in Explorer, then they are in the same subnet.

OK, if they are in the same homegroup, can you try doing this..
1. Winkey+R
2. type in "\\<one of your PC's name>\users\<your user name on that PC>\

do you see your pictures, music and videos?
do this on both PCs.

if this is still not working, leave the homegroup on all the PCs, and start from scratch.
1. on one of the PCs, create the homegroup, don't change the password
2. on the other PC, join the homegroup with the autocreated password
3. check that everything is shared out in the control panel
4. try the winkey+R thing again..
