    Are they both the same OS?
    Are they both on the same network?

    What do you want to "network" - files, folders?

    It sounds like you want to share files/folders between the two laptops. Once both laptops are connected to the wifi connection you need to create a work group and give it any name, other than work group. Then set the share parameters on both laptops....then you can look and share files and folders on both laptops.
