    Is there an app I can use to see the pc's on my home network from the x2? I have a network of both wireless and wired lan.
    Is this possible only with dlna devices and that's why I cant gt it to work?
    I can connect to the network but am unable to see any of the computers on the network.
    I have the ES File Explorer app but that doesn't do what I expected.

    Thanks,

    No app needed. I have the X, but yours should be very similar.
    Apps>Files>Shared Folders>Add Server ( I have added mine so I bypass this and click on my PC).

    I can access all my files on my PC over wifi.

    When I look at shared folders I see:

    Add Server

    Netgear Router

    192.168.1.10

    192.168.1.3

    .10 is the only one that does anything. It says login failure, no matter how many user/password entries I make I cant log on..

    You need to know your computers IP address, then add it. You will need your username (the same one you use to log into your PC) and password (the same one you use to log into your PC).

    To find your IP address on your CP:
    Start>Run>type "cmd" (without " ")>hit ok>type "ipconfig" (without " ") hit enter. Your IP address will be shown.

    Let me know if that helps.

    In the instructions app>etc...you didn't say where you started from <g>

    Pogoplug software on pc or Mac (free) and the android app will let you connect to any resource shared from the pc from android device. Or over the internet from anywhere.Need paid software ($30) to stream audio or video. Computer has to be on. Device (Amazon, $60) lets you plug in USB drive and share that anywhere, incl streaming.

    The damn thing works! I was amazed. And delighted.

    No setting up ftp thru a router hassles!

    Google pogoplug. Take a look.

    I have no fingers in this pie. Just a suggestion
