    home networking

    I have my N1 connected to the internet through my wireless router through wifi. I have two comupters networked together through this same router-one with cat5 and one with wifi. The N1 connects to the internet just fine through the wireless network, but I cannot get it to be recognized by either of the other two networked computers to be able to transfer files, books, etc between them. I see no place to enable "home netoworking" on the N1. Am I looking for a capability that doesn't exist?

    You should try bluetooth file transfer. The N1 won't natively be recognized on your network as another machine to connect to.

    Thanks

    Thanks Rioja - I'd prefer not to have to use bluetooth, but will if the phone won't network. Is there an app or mod that will allow it to see the network or the network to see it? I am running a rooted phone with the cyanogen rom.

    Download ES file explorer @ the market. I use this to transfer file over my network at home. Works fine to me.

    ES looks good! Didn't realize it existed, I'm going to try it with my Mac too.

    Thanks, but my network doesn't see the Nexus, so having a file transfer utility won't do me any good unless ES File Explorer sees the network...
