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.

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
