Dear Tanveer,

For connecting two computer, you are required some things:

1. Both computers have a LAN / Ethernet Card.

2. You have one data cable with RJ-45 connectors to connect your PCs.

Attach both computer for data cable inserted in LAN Cards and set same workgroup on both computers by clicking on control panel / system / computer name.

After this, you will able to transfer data and share all kind of files easily. If you got problem in connecting then you should set your computer IP Address by clicking on Local Area Connection Icon.

Further queries, welcome.

First of all, you did not include in your question which Operating System are you using and if both computers connects on the internet under the same network. If both are connected to the internet and you want to share your files, just simply run the Network Setup Wizard on two PCs and then create a home network. And then, right-click the folder that you wish to share and then click on Properties> Sharing. Go to your Windows Explorer and access the shared folders. You can also try to enable the File and Printer Sharing on two computers and then go to My Network Places to see the other PC's network.  

Another option which I think will be much faster is to transfer your files using a USB Flash disk. Just simply copy your files to your USB Flash disk and then open it to the computer where you want to share your files.
