First, let's download a file manager or other LAN-enabled application to your device, so I suggest ES File Explorer, which I will base on this tutorial.

If you don't have a wifi router, you will need to download connectify to your pc, a program that will do the router function on your computer.

<p><strong>10</strong> Now, if you have a Wi-Fi router, write down your PC's IP and go straight to the LAN setup part on your smartphone, if you don't, follow the instructions below.</p>
<p><strong>11 </strong>After normally downloading and installing the CONNECTIFY program, run it and it will open a window like the photo below:</p><div class='code-block code-block-9' style='margin: 8px auto; text-align: center; display: block; clear: both;'>
<div data-ad=

tutorial9 "src =" https://fscl01.fonpit.de/userfiles/2663230/image/tutorial91375209651412.jpg "data-pagespeed-url-hash =" 98355456 "data-pagespeed-onload =" pagespeed.CriticalImages.checkImageForCriticality (this ); "onload =" var elem = this; if (this == window) elem = document.body; elem.setAttribute ('data-pagespeed-loaded', 1) "/></p>
<p>Although the program is quite simple in English, practically all you need to do is just set the password and identify your internet network in the "Internet" window, the rest of the settings can be left as is. Once configured, click "START HOTSPOT" and your machine will turn into a Wi-Fi router, now just connect your tablet or smartphone normally by Wi-Fi.</p>
<p><strong>Attention! </strong>Remember: To set up LAN on an Android device, you need the machine's IP. Who has the normal router, just follow the next instructions. For those who installed CONNECTIFY, I will now show you how to find his IP.</p><div class='code-block code-block-11' style='margin: 8px auto; text-align: center; display: block; clear: both;'>

<p>16. Click on DETAILS and write down the number in the "ipv4" address – including the dots – this is the IP we will need later on. Then you can close all windows.</p>
<p style=tutorial14 "src =" https://fscl01.fonpit.de/userfiles/2663230/image/tutorial14.jpg "data-pagespeed-url-hash =" 627530206 "data-pagespeed-onload =" pagespeed.CriticalImages.checkImageForCriticality (this ); "onload =" var elem = this; if (this == window) elem = document.body; elem.setAttribute ('data-pagespeed-loaded', 1) "/></p>
<h2>Configuring the LAN</h2>
<p>And finally we get to the end, now there are a few steps left to finish this setup, so let's go there.</p>
<p><strong>1.</strong> At this point in the championship, you should already be connected via Wi-Fi, or with your router or pc via connectify, then on your tablet or smartphone open ES FILE EXPLORER:</p>
<p style=Screenshot 2013 07 30 13 38 06

2. Tap the icon that is pointed with the arrow in the picture above.

4 Tap "New" as identified in the image above.

5 Now, type in the space of the "Server" the IP that was noted before, including the dots between the numbers, otherwise it would not work. Then check the anonymous option, then give "OK". If all went well, you will return to the previous screen with the PC cone. Tapping on it, the next screen will show all the folders you have placed to share and within them the files you have made available.

6 As you can see, there is the movies folder, which was created at the beginning of this tutorial.

Compatibility

I tested using Windows 7, so I can't guarantee that it will work with Windows 8, but for Android, I tested on GB, ICS, JB 4.1.2 and JB 4.2.2, all worked fully.
