I have 2 computers that connect to the internet via a wireless ADSL modem-router. How can I also configure this setup so that I have a 2-way interconnect between the 2 computers?

In XP - Network Connection Wizard in Control Panel. Make a floppy and run it on the second computer.

... will be specifically for internet, and I will need to make another one that is simply for traffic between computers?

If you're using XP.... Right click My Computer -> Properties -> Computer Name tab. The full computer name will need to be different on both PCs whilst the Workgroup needs to be the same. If you need to change these settings, click on the Change radio button.

You will need to restart the PCs if you change those settings. Now goto My Network Places and see if the shared files show up.
