    If you are already connecting to the Internet using the same router, simply
    configure the machines to be in the same workgroup and they should see each
    other. IOW, if you are using the same router you are most likely already
    "networked". How exactly do you want to use this network?

    i am wanting to share files with my brother. I have made sure the workgroup
    was the same. I labeled it as "HOME" for both computers and still nothing
    happend. I checked the "share files and printer" box but nothing appeared in
    the shared folder. Could there be some config. in the router itself that im
    missing??

    Yes it can be. Or it can be your firewall.

    You need to set up files to share. Right click the folders/file/drives you
    want to share. Under sharing and security, check the box to share and you
    should be good to go.
