    Can someone give me an easy way to "add server". I assume this is how I can file share with my home network? Laptop?

    Right?

    Step by step is you don't mind :)

    I'd like to know this too using windows 7.
    I think I understand the phone part...just not the computer part with the networking.

    I'm using XP so I don't know about Windows 7 but I would assume it would be the same or similar.

    1. First get your computer's IP address...

    Windows XP, without using the command prompt

    1. From the Start menu, right-click My Network Places, and then click Properties.
    2. To view the IP address of a wired connection, double-click Local Area Connection. To view the IP address of a wireless adapter, double-click Wireless Network Connection.
    3. Click the Support tab, and then click Details... . The window that appears will display the IP address.
    Windows 7, Vista, XP, and 2000, using the command prompt

    1. Click Start, and then select All Programs (Windows 7, Vista, and XP) or Programs (2000). Note: If this doesn't match what you see, refer to About navigation settings in Windows.
    2. Click Accessories, and then Command Prompt.
    3. At the command prompt, enter: ipconfig The IP address (or IPv4 address, if you are using Windows 7 or Vista) will be a series of numbers following the pattern xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (i.e., 156.56.27.32).
    2. Open EStrongs on your Droid > click on Remote > press Menu button > New > Server > add you IP address....

    You must have a username and password login for you PC set. (when you load windows it asks you to enter password.... you have to have a password set in order for this to work.)

    3. Enter you username and password in the provided fields. This will give you complete access to your PC.
    **If you don't wish to be able to view all folders on your PC, and you only want to be able to view certain 'shared' folders... when you add the IP address, at the end, add "/My Documents" (My Documents is an example... add what ever folder name you wish to have access to.)

    4. Select to remember your username and password. Now you should be all set!

    I know its not a big deal, but I was hoping you didn't have to do that to get this to work

    OK got it to work with windows 7

    Go to Control Panel and select user accounts on your Win 7 PC.
    I only have 1 account on there and its mine and is set as Administrator.
    The account is called Home
    I set a password for this account. (so now when you turn on your PC you will have to enter that password everytime) (I know a PITA)

    Open EStrongs on your Droid > click on Remote > press Menu button > New > Server > add you IP address....

    Mine was 192.168.1.101

    I entered my user name Home
    I entered my Password xxxx

    Click OK and it connected!

    Of course for all this to work you MUST be connected to your WIFI connection not 3G

    Correct.

    Now I can turn on my WIFI on my phone when I am home and transfer files to my phone from any place on my PC.

    Since I have gotten this to work, I have tried all sorts of files and so far its worked perfectly!

    Now i do not have to grab my USB cable and mount my phone to the PC to add files.

    Thanks for the clarification with Windows 7.... as I said I'm using XP so I wasn't certain of any differences between the set up.

    I've been trying to get this to work on my droid for a while now, and have been unable to. I have wifi turned on, but my droid will not, for whatever reason, connect to either of my computers that I have file-sharing enabled for (one mac (with smb enabled), one W7). I've tried setting it up with username/password and anonymously, and neither will connect. Both computers are running static IPs.

    I've setup plenty of networks in the past, so I'm baffled as to why I'm unable to connect with my droid.

    Do you know why music that I transfered through my network using estrong over to the Droid shows up on the SD card when looking using Estrong but in the actual stock music player the files arent there?

    I now re-transfered using the usb cable and the stock media player now sees the files.

    This has to do with mounting and remounting the sd card I believe
    This process takes place when you connect USB, but not when you transfer through WIFI.

    I just restarted my phone and all was good again

    That's what I did, not sure if there is an easier way to mount/unmount the SD card from the settings.
    I haven't looked.

    just asking the necessary questions... not being an arse..
    1. is wi-fi connected? being on doesn't mean it's connected unfortunately.
    2. does it recognize your computers just not connect or are the computers not showing up in a search?
    3. if they're just not connecting i would try a simple restart of the pc/mac and try again.
    I had issues getting mine to connect initially... restart of my pc worked for me so I'm just throwing out what I went through.
