I have a PC with P4 3.2 and winXP pro, this has a TP link card in it, I also have a laptop running XP pro and an SMC EZ connect 2.4GHz 11Mbps wireless cardbus adapter. The two of them see each other but I cannot get them to setup a network.
I also have a Linksys 802.11b access point if this can be of any use.

Have you enabled sharing on each computer? In My Computer right click on the drive or folder you wish to share and select Sharing. If you are wireless be sure you set a password for access.
Have you mapped the drives? You do this by selecting Tools>Map Network Drive... in My Network Places. By mapping the drivefolder you point your computer to the place on the LAN where the drive/folder is. This mapped drive/folder should show as the next drive on your computer. I suggest you only share the folders you need and not the entire drive. If someone does pickup you wireless signal it will make it harder to access your entire computer.

does your access point connect to a router?
did you make sure the two computers have the same workgroup name?
are your permissions set correctly for sharing?(any security errors?
do you have anything shared?

oh yea, just thought of something else, try disabling your firewall(s), just to see if that helps, you may have to add an exception
