General :: WiFi File Sharing Between Windows 7 And Android
Apr 5, 2012
I have problem about sharing files between win7 and my sensation wirelessly. I have no modem to connect my pc and and phone together, because i use phone's internet connection on my pc, so i don't need a modem. Because of this, i can't find my way to reach files on my computer using my phone. I set a wireless network on my pc, but android phones does not find the network i created ( i thing something with b/g/n ). Is there any way possible?
Actually what i want to do is playing movies on pc's harddrive, on my sensation using es file explorer or else..
Like the title implies, I'm looking for an app that will browse cifs/smbfs shares on any given WiFi network you connect to. I want to be able to move word documents and the like from the sdcard to network shares, or vice versa, so that I don't need to carry a USB cable with me wherever I go.
Also I'd also like to know if there's an app that would install a server on the phone to enable other PC's on the network to connect to my phone via CIFS/SMBFS so I can browse/modify the files directly on it without having to copy it to the computer first.
I have a Samsung Galaxy 5 player running gingerbread. I'm trying to access files on it from my WinXP box via wifi. This seems like it should be a very common thing to do, but I simply can't find it. If I plug it into a usb port, I can access the drives. Can this be done via wifi?
Again, I want to access the android from the PC. Not the other way around.
it is possible to send 3g from your android phone to your PC, without others can see it? I dont want it to be broadcast in the public, and i cant do a direct connection with a datacord. So is there a way to share your 3g connection with your computer, without public broadcast and datacord/wires?
I have a PC running Windows XP, which is connected to the internet using a wired cable modem. I then have a laptop, which I want to use to access the internet, but no wireless router.
Then I realized that my G1 (running Froyo) has WiFi, and I have the USB cable for it. So, is there any way of setting up my G1 to use the connection from the desktop PC via USB, and then broadcast it as a WiFi network? This is only intended to be a temporary solution (a few days) so I'm not going to go out and buy a wireless router or anything.
I was wondering if anyone knows how to share internet through the phone. I run windows 7 on my netbook and I have installed HTC sync. When I connect my HTC evo and set the connection status as share internet and then open pdanet I get error 651. Now I don't have the wifi sharing plan, just the regular all data 450 + min. plan. Is there a workaround for this or do I need the more expensive wireless sharing plan? I don't want wireless sharing I just want tethering. Is this doable?
I have a single user access to a Wifi device on my macbook. I'd like to use my HTC evo and sisters iPhone on the Wifi also. Is there any way I can broadcast the wifi from one of my devices. I know if I had my laptop hardwired I could share the Wifi, but I've not found anything to do Wifi to Wifi. or Wifi to Bluetooth. Any know, I don't have data plans on the cell phones as I am out of town.
I have samsung android phone which can be used as wifi hotspot. My question is can I use my laptop internet on android phone by connection laptop to android phone hotspot as phone is unable to connect adhoc network.
Nexus 7 2013 and Samsung Galaxy S4, both running ES File Explorer 188.8.131.52 Windows 7 x64 Pro (Hosting the files) ASUS RT-AC66U
The system works just fine after a fresh reboot of my PC. After a few hours, I get the "Login Fails" error (plain text or SMB). The only way to fix it is to reboot my PC. I believe its a Windows 7 setting that causing this. I searched all over the net for a fix and none of them worked. I tried:
Enabling Guest Account Changed Advanced Sharing Settings Set "Everyone" as read in the File Share Window Enabled Inbound/Outbound rules in the Advanced Windows Firewall Enabled sending unencrypted passwords to SMB via Local Security Policy
I can go into more detail of the fixes I tried if needed. What is an alternative to sharing files from a Windows 7 machine to Android devices? I feel like Ill never get ES File Explorer to work.
I have my Google account also setup on my wife's phone so we can share purchased apps. However, everything else is shared too. For example, even though I have sync for everything on my account turned off, my calendar still showed up on my wife's phone until I disabled it in the calendar app. Also, I can't remove my Google Talk account from her phone so my messages show up on her phone.
This is on a pair of stock Samsung Galaxy S3 phones.
Is it possible for Android to connect to Windows ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) via WiFi?I have set up Windows ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) on my Windows XP laptop WiFi adapter. The connection is open with WEP disabled.From a Windows Mobile 6 PDA I am able to see various WiFi routers, my laptop ICS and connect to the laptop ICS.From Android I am only able to see the various WiFi routers, but not the laptop ICS connection.Does the Windows ICS use some special Microsoft protocol that the Android WiFi adapter can not detect?Is there some other Android software or app that can connect the Windows WiFi ICS?

So when i plug my phone into a windows pc it will not recognize it for ODIN...in device manager it labelled as " Linux file-cd gadget USB device" and cant install the driver to use ODIN.
i have search the web/forum for a windows app that running on the PC you can see at least the apk icon, I have several apks on my PC but when I'm looking for an apk, is hard to remember the name or when trying a new apk is not enough just looking for the name, I may be more visual guy that if I see a nice icon I will try it jajajja.I just found this thread but look die..URL...
is there some application or dev that can easily do an apk viewer, just looking inside the APK folder on the /res/drawable/ the apk icon shows, but how to make it shows at the apk compressed file.
Has anyone tried sharing a wifi connection through the evo?

I recently bought a HTC Tattoo. And I like to access internet on Tattoo using PC broadband connection. I have ASUS motherboard with inbuild WiFi support. So, using that I have made my WiFi of PC to Access Point Mode. So, now I am able to connect to PC using that WiFi network. But I am unable to access internet. Can anyone suggest me the way to share my PC internet to my HTC Tattoo to save money when we are at home.
I have a Macbook Pro, its connected to Ethernet & I want to share the internet connection with my Samsung Galaxy S. I enabled Internet Sharing on my Mac, selected Airport under ports & provided a WEP password. On my Galaxy S, I select my macbook on the list of WiFi n/w, provide the password, but it never gets connected & there is no error msg either. Has anyone else tried this? Any ideas on why this is happening? BTW, I'm able to connect my Galaxy S to my wireless router at home.
Im really looking at getting this phone. What I really need though is to have the ability to use my phone as a wifi router to use my laptop when needed. My current 2 year old samsung i760 is running an app called WM wifi router that is currently doing this, for free. To me this is a deal breaker if the phone cannot do this. I have looked everywhere on the interwebz and have not found no such info for this phone.
I have a wired internet connection on my PC, how do i share that internet connection to my HTC wildfire. i read in some forum about connectivity , but it confused me. Now if i buy a usb wifi dongle and attach that to my pc , will i be able to share my wired internet connection with my cell phone.please guide me
It seems possible to setup a shared folder but I can't find any directions on it and none of my current shares show on the phone. Does any know how to do this or if it's even possible. I would love to transfer stuff without plugging in the phone.
As soon as I plugged the USB cable in the computer it started installing PC Companion, this all installed correctly. I cannot open the file sharing option the only time its will open is when the phone is not connected, so I do this then connect my phone and thats it nothing else.
I go on Media Go and I just cannot transfer any files over to my phone the only transfer option I get is to put it into another folder. My sd card that comes with the phone will keep saying unavaliable. Now I am not normally slow at working phones but this has me completely stumped.
This app allows you share file from android phone with any users my sms/email/link. How it works: 1. Upload file to server. 2. Get link for file and send its by sms or email from application.
This is just beta. I am looking for any proposals and feedbacks. Download Send big files the easy way. Files too large for email attachments? Current limitations: 50MB per user and 10MB per file. Also, because the server is running in test mode, files and accounts may be lost.
I'm working on some apps for the android platform and I have two problems that I'm not quite sure how to approach, and both are closely related.How can I send a relatively small data file from one android device to another (preferably over the internet or directly through wireless network)?Is it possible to create a temporary p2p live data stream from one android device to another? An example application would be to stream low-res video from phone A's camera to phone B, or audio.I would much appreciate being pointed in the right direction on either issue (File transfer or real time data transfer).
How can I build and signed (keystore) the .apk file using 'apkbuilder.bat' via windows command-line? I try to run the following line: apkbuilder.bat %APK_File_Name% -u -z %Project_Path%in esources.ap_ -f %Project_Path%inclasses.dex -rf %Project_Path%. But I'm getting the following exception: java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: 1 at com.android.sdklib.build.ApkBuilderMain.main<ApkBuilderMain.java:61>.
I am new to the Android SDK. Is there a way to share files from my Android app, so that it can be accessed by another computer using WiFi? Is there support for something like SMB? (Android version on phone is 1.6)
