Yes it is. I have a local wi-fi network with a standard pc and a laptop. For me it only worked one way (using my laptop as the host and the server as the guest) , but I am nothing expert on that. The way was simply to enter a session by the laptop and then getting the laptop IP (I believe it was the network one, that you get executing "cmd" and then "ipconfig" from Windows XP). After getting the laptop IP, if you start multiplayer in the guest (in my case, the server), you just have to introduce the network IP to search it, the session it will appear in your screen so you can join it as a normal multiplayer session.
variety is the spice of life; that's what made the "old times" so good
