It is possible. We just succeed that today.

My friend and I both have Minecraft 1.6.2 . We also connected to the same WiFi router. Then here's how we do it.

1. I opened Minecraft and selected a single player world. In this case, my world is The Survivor. I already built a home and farms and discovered 3 villages in this world.

2. I pressed Esc to get to the in-game menu and clicked Open to LAN.

3. They will give a screen with Settings for Other Players. Start LAN World.

4. They will give you the port number. Copy that number immediately (It will disappear for about 5 seconds). Here's the one I got:

5. Tell your friend the number. Your friend should go to Multiplayer on the menu.

6. He or she can either Direct Connect then put in the port number  or Add server, name the server, and put in your port number. Either way works fine.

7. After joining the server, your friend's character should be in your world you're playing (We had a lot of connection problems in the first place). Your friend will be able to see the structures you built and your own characters. Also keep in mind that the name your friend sees on you in that world is the name you inputted in the game launcher. If you forgot to put a name in the launcher, your friend would probably see your name as "---session". Also, your friend's origin will be the same as yours. You can help your friend find your place once they're in that world.

**NOTE** Port numbers are not constant, they always change whenever you exit to the menu.

can you play with 2 people and 1 account? like for example i have a account just 1, but my friend wanted to play with me and he don't have an accont so he used my computer and I used a diffrent one I know how to make one but it says it can't find it like it shows on the lan like a server but when i click on it it says it can't find it... is it the firewall?

its because you need two acounts and you cant both have the same data or it wont let the other join.
