    [HowTo] Wifi Mount your DROID

    Hey guys,

    getting annoyed to still connect your lovely DROID via
    USB? Its time....future startet Just follow the instructions!

    Notice: The best way to keep this working all the time among your network is to give your DROID a static IP Adress in your Network. For example if your router has 192.168.0.1 then your DROID can have the IP adress 192.168.0.123 if it is still free.

    To find out what IP your network has and if the IP you desire is aviable goto Start>Execute and type
    cmd
    and hit enter. a black box will appear. You type in
    ipconfig /all
    . Then a short list will be shown. Search for the Entry "Default Gateway". The that is shown there belongs to your Network. Now Just add +1 to the last digit of those numbers.

    Example: Default Gateway is 192.168.0.1
    DROID gets 192.168.0.2

    To check if this IP is free type in the same window
    ping desiredipfordroid
    (exchange words with the IP Adress). If you get no response, or timeouts, IP mostly is free.

    Then:

    1. Go To the market on your Droid, hit the Search, and search for "FTPServer"

    2. Install FTPServer

    3. Goto Settings and Edit the following:

    User: RinTinTigger
    Pass: MyPassword
    Port: 2002 (or any above 2000)
    Default dir: \sdcard

    Accept Wifi Connections

    Red credentials can be edited

    Now surf on your PC to NetDrive - The Network Drive for Windows
    and download Netdrive.

    Install

    CLick on "Add Site"

    Set the following credentials EXACTLY THE SAME, as you did on droid.

    Host/Server:
    192.168.0.2
    (Enter the IP)
    User: RinTinTigger
    Pass: MyPassword
    Port: 2002 (or any above 2000)
    Server Type: FTP

    Select a free network drive for example Q:\


    Now hit Connect and your droid SDCard will be mounted to your PC as Drive Q:\ over WiFi

    Part II Wifi Mount via 3G:

    On this you just gotta use the program "myip" from the market,
    proceed with step one, and leave all the IP Stuff before out.

    The hostname just changes to what "MyIP" tells you for Hostname.

    This should look like:

    ip-109-85.115-120.web.vodafone.de
    (Just a sample, edit with your own credentials)

    And this hostname has to be entered to netdrive.
    Also the box at FTPServer "Accept 3G Connections" has to be checket

    Et voila !

    Have fun!
