I would recommend you use a router. If you do not wish to go that route then set your wifi cards in "Ad Hoc" mode. You can use Windows ICS if you are runnig XP.

You will need to setup file sharing on each computer. Since these computers are already sharing a LAN sharing files and\or printers should not be so hard.

If you notice at the bottom of the page on the link I provided it will indicate that it applies to Home and Professional.
