    So I just recently got a lg g2 and tried to set up the wireless storage, but when I type the ip in the windows file browser (\\192.168.0.9 also \\192.168.0.9\g2) It doesn't connect. windows says "Windows cannot access \\192.168.0.9" And it says the name is incorrect. I am using the same internet connection and it doesn't work, any ideas?
    Ps. Using windows 10

    To use a browser to connect to another computer, you have to be running a web serer on that computer. There are apps that run a web server on the phone (like WiFi File Transfer) that let you use the computer's browser to connect to the phone to copy files. (The browser is trying to connect to port 80 on your computer, and if nothing is listening on port 80 [that's where web servers listen], there's nothing for the phone to connect to.)
