Logmein makes a great product called Hamachi.  It allows you to create a connection between two computers through the internet.  It's free for personal use.

Are your computers both in the same location, like at your home?  Or are you trying to connect two computers at different locations?  Here's the method to connect the computers.

If you are trying to connect two computers on the same network then yes you will need to connect both computers to your router.  This is possible in one of three ways.
1) If you have a wireless router then you connect your computers to the wireless connection
2) If your router has multiple ports then you can plug in multiple computers to it
3) If you don't have wireless and your router only has one port then you'll need to buy additional hardware.  I would suggest you get a switch, but you could also get a wireless router to connect the computers to the same internet connection.

If you are trying to connect two computers that are in different locations and they both have a network connection and you are trying to connect them together the easiest way to do it with out any hardware is to use Hamachi.

What operating system are you using?

PC1 has XP Home?
PC2 has XP Pro?

The reason you can't ping is probably related to the firewall.  Make sure that the firewall is turned off on PC1.  This is done by clicking on start then run and type in firewall.cpl.  From here you should be able to turn off the firewall.

Are you trying to share files between the two computers?

Here is a great how to (with pictures) on how to do this;

and

This one is by Microsoft but is a little harder to understand

If you are trying to use Vista let me know and I'll find some good Vista file sharing guides for you.
