Help with how to accessing another comp over network

Help with how to accessing another comp over network

I have two desktops with Win7 (both with wireless capabilities) and I used one of them to create an ad hoc network.

Q: Now that i have both computers connected to this network, how can i access comp2 with comp1 over the network and vice a versa?

One option that i tried was:
right click computer - map network drive - browse - choose comp2

but when i choose comp2 it asks me for a username and password and that's as far as i got.

This whole process of networking is new to me and any help with this question will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
