    Do you have a combo modem/router from Comcast? That's probably why you don't have to do much to set it up. You can still adjust the settings, though, by entering the local IP address of the router. Do you have an Arris modem/router?
    Yep, it's the combo router they provide! I don't think we've ever had to tamper with any of the settings though.

    I can't remember offhand, but if you go into its settings, you might be able to change the 802.11 mode to "N only," rather than mixed B/G/N--this might increase overall wifi transmission speeds. I'd have to check what the default is--not currently at home, though.

    Interesting! All devices I have are N compatible so that would be a plus.

    You could give it a go. Enter the router's local IP address into any browser (it's probably something like 192.168.0.1, or 10.0.0.1)--if you're not sure, on any of your Android devices connected to the network, go to Settings>About phone>Status, and look at the IP address. If it starts with a 10, use 10.0.0.1. If you get to the login screen, type admin as the username. The default password is usually blank, "admin", or "password." Then look around the settings to see if you can change it to N only.

    On a side note that's slightly off-topic, there's also another cool way of storing stuff: You can create your own cloud storage server.
    It's easy to do and anyone can do it. I know it's probably easier to just use Dropbox or Google Drive, but I make my own cloud storage servers all the time. I wonder if I could make a how-to guide. Lol
    You mean like:

    Step 1: Plug external USB drive into USB port on router.

    Step2: Open beer and pour.

    Or something else?

    You could do that, but not all routers allow that (Comcast router for example). I meant something else. You'll see

    If you have a USB otg cable and a microSD card reader, then you should be able to do it through the s2.

    I just saw this app in the Play Store. Not sure if it will actually transfer a file directly from one device to the other via Wi-Fi, but worth a try.

    It does work, but it would take sort of a long time to transfer a large music library. Over my WiFi I used that to zip about 2 GBs of files and transfer, and it took about 45 minutes.

    How about Bittorent Sync? I totally forgot about that. You can easily transfer files to another device as well.
