    Hi folks!

    I'm a complete Android newbie. I just got my GS3 and I'm trying to figure out the best way to access the shared folders/files on my PC wirelessly via my home network.

    The PC is wired to my router. The GS3 is connected wirelessly. File-sharing is active on the PC.

    But where do I go from here? Do I need extra software to access the folders/files on the PC? :confused:

    Thanks in advance!

    Download ES File Explorer from the Play Store.
    It has networking. Excellent file manager app and it's free.

    Awesome! Exactly what I needed.

    It was a bit of a pain in the ass to get going....but once all devices are talking to eachother, it's the business.

    Cheers Jack.
