    OK, let me make sure i actually understand what your asking. You want to send files and such wirelessly from one PC to the other?

    If that is the case then the answer is yes, you can. The PC with the router should be fine, the other would need a wireless card to pick up the router. Then you can run the network setup wizard in Windows on both PC's and set up a wireless network. After that you will most likely have to map the drive or folders that you want to share and also go into the settings of that drive/folder and set it so that it can be shared on your network. After that you should be able to see and send files back and forth whenever you like.

    There are also networking programs out there that are fairly cheap that will set all of this up for you in a very easy way if you do not want to manually do it.

    Not sure why you would even need to send messages. You could write up what you wanted in a text file and send that. Or just put Yahoo messenger or MSN Messenger on both computers. As long as they have two different sign in accounts you can use them to chat and send files or even video chat.
