Well.. If you haven't set up a WLAN yet.. theres no way in the world the PC's can connect... You cant expect them to auto-sense just by installing the drivers...

More to the point;
Both PC's should have the same Subnet, Default gateway addresses. etc. etc. which can be configured by right clicking the WLAN connection and going in the properties--> TCP/IP

Without inflicting a whole essay... see the following two links to get a better idea;
