[all variants] Confused about networking

http://ubuntuforums.org – I've searched for an answer for a couple weeks. I have two identical computers, both running Kubuntu 9.10, sharing a broadband internet connection through a router, to which they are both wired. They both also have wireless capability. But I can't get them to communicate with one another. I can find info on sharing the printer and sharing files, but everything I find assumes that you already have the computers set up on a network. Apparently, I don't, and can't find simple instructions on how to set up the network. I want to be able to share the printer and files between the two computers and continue to share the broadband connection through the router. Can anyone point me to the information I need? Please note that I'm not what you'd consider knowledgeable when it comes to networking, so simple, easy to follow how-tos would be best. Thanks. (HowTos)
