What is the process of sharing folders and files to other computers using the WIFI network (D-Link router)?

Can you point me to a good tutorial on how to do this?

I'm in my computer (desktop), and I want to share my files and folders to 2 laptops.

Consider installing Windows Live Mesh. This does not require a server machine to be always online, and allows retrieving your files remotely.

Since I posted this answer, LiveMesh has been replaced by SkyDrive. – Dour High Arch Sep 11 '13 at 5:08

Go to Run type in services.msc
Start the server process
Now right click on the folder you wish to share and go to properties , you should find a tab for sharing .
Enable it .
This folder should now be visible on other machines
