Hey Muhammad,

there are many ways of doing this. But among the easiest one, is to use the NetworkManager. Using NetworkManager is very easy. If it's not automatically started already, then issue the following command as root:

/sbin/service NetworkManager start

Should bring a network (2 computers) icon on your taskbar on the top right hand corner. Click on it and everything else should be self-explainatory.

Good luck, mate!

You should also go to Administration<Services and find the NetworkManager and enable it to start at boot time. That way you don't have to run the command to start the network manager every time you turn on your computer.
