    Hey gang,

    I want to set up a network connecting my windows xp comp, samsung galaxy s and a android tab(yet to be purchased), that i may transfer documents between the three. The issue is my xp computer does not have wifi hardware.
    So whats the best way to go about this, wifi or bluetooth dongle???

    Any advice would be great.

    Ps will not upgrade computer at this time.

    Thanks

    If you have an aversion to using internet, as you'll have wifi anyway, get sugarsync and install on all 3. It allows you to sync folders across multiple devices and platforms automatically via an internet connection.

    Oh, I forgot to mention. I want to do this without using the Internet.
    Just a basic wireless network of sorts that if i want a file from my pc, i can transfer it without the use of the usb. Also my phone and tab to have that attribute.

    Its really just for extra convenience, and having all three in sync.

    Thanks for your input :)

    If your xp pc is connected to your wireless router you can install es file explorer on both your phone and tab click on the lan option and you can just browse any shared folders you have on your pc. This will use the wireless but not the internet or any cloud service. If you dont mind using the net then dropbox is what i use you get 2gb free but you can expand this through referrals.

    You can copy and move files within es file explorer between devices wirelessly
