Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

What you're looking for is an ad hoc network and in Windows 7>Control Panel>Network and Sharing Centre, you should be able to click on Create a new Network and then on Ad Hoc Network then Next, name the network, Next again and it should all be set up - possibly after the next restart.

Which type of cable are you using?

I should have added that all the above is subject to having allowed file and printer sharing and, preferably, no passwords needed - also in the Network and Sharing Centre. Then right click folders to allow the share.
