Hello bradleywitham9 and welcome to Linux Mint Forums,
What you ask is possible but we will need more information in order to point you in the right direction.
Will both machines have linux or will one have windows, Etc?
I would assume if wireless there would be a wireless router of some sort involved.

If both are connected to the same wifi network they are practically already connected.

What do you want to do? Use one main machine to remote control the others? Share files? Sync a folder?
