    File transfer smartphone->pc and vice versa

    Locked

    by bluenite1 ·

    I need help with transferring files to/from smartphone using my own home wifi network. It should be possible to do it directly without other sw, but I’m used to SendAnywhere where it’s really easy. But I don’t know how to achieve the highest transfer speed, i.e. about 100Mbit (+-12,5Mbyte/s), because it only happens at internet speed, which I have here 20Mbit (2,5Mbyte/s). The pc is connected by cable to the router, it has no wifi. On another pc it went like this, here I don’t know what and how to set it up. Can anyone experienced advise? Or how to configure that sw if anyone knows that. I wouldn’t be asking here if it hadn’t worked before. Now I’m talking about a different pc, different os (Win11 instead of Win10).Thank you for any advice.
    Peter

      1. Check Wi-Fi Connection: Ensure both your smartphone and PC are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

      2. On Your Smartphone:
      Enable Wi-Fi.
      Find the files you want to transfer.
      Share or send them via the “Send via Wi-Fi” or similar option. This varies depending on your device.

      3. On Your PC:
      Open a web browser.
      Type the IP address displayed on your smartphone (when you initiated the transfer) into the browser’s address bar.
      A web page should appear with the files for download. You can then download them to your PC.

      I use a USB-cable and Windows Explorer to copy pics from my smartphone to my PC. No need for WiFi or internet.

      For Android to PC:

      Use a USB cable to connect your Android device to your PC and choose “File Transfer” mode, then you can drag and drop files in ‘My Computer’ or ‘This PC’. Alternatively, for wireless transfer, use Bluetooth by pairing devices or use cloud services like Google Drive to upload from your phone and download on your PC. Apps like AirDroid can also facilitate wireless transfers over Wi-Fi.

      For iOS to PC:

      Connect your iPhone or iPad to your PC using a USB cable and use iTunes (or Finder on macOS Catalina and later) to sync files. You can also use iCloud by enabling it on your iOS device and accessing it through the iCloud for Windows app or website on your PC. For Mac users, AirDrop is a convenient method to send files directly from an iOS device to a Mac without cables.

      Universal Methods:

      Emailing files to yourself is a simple, universal method that works for all devices. Wi-Fi Direct apps are available for both Android and iOS and can transfer files directly over a local Wi-Fi connection. Also, consider file transfer software like Microsoft’s “Your Phone” app for a more integrated experience with Android on Windows PCs.

      To transfer files directly between your smartphone and your PC

      by usamaasmat ·

      In reply to File transfer smartphone->pc and vice versa

      To transfer files directly between your smartphone and your PC using your home Wi-Fi network without third-party software, you can use built-in Windows features (assuming you are using Windows 11 on your PC). This method is generally efficient and can achieve high transfer speeds, close to the limits of your Wi-Fi network, which is typically faster than your internet connection.

      Here’s how you can set up file transfers between your smartphone and PC using Windows 11:

      Enable Sharing on Windows 11:

      a. Ensure both your PC and smartphone are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

      b. On your Windows 11 PC, right-click on the folder or drive that you want to share. Select “Properties.”

      c. Go to the “Sharing” tab, and click “Advanced Sharing…”

      d. Check the box that says “Share this folder.” You can specify a share name.

      e. Click on “Permissions” and ensure that “Everyone” has “Read” access.

      Access the Shared Folder from Your Smartphone:

      a. On your smartphone, open a file manager app (like the Files app on Android or Files on iOS).

      b. Look for an option like “Network” or “LAN” in the file manager app. The specific location may vary depending on your device.

      c. Find your PC on the list of network devices. It should be visible since you’ve shared the folder.

      d. Access the shared folder on your PC from your smartphone.

      Transfer Files:

      a. You can now transfer files back and forth by copying and pasting or dragging and dropping them.

      This method should allow you to achieve high transfer speeds within the limits of your Wi-Fi network, which can reach up to 100Mbit if your router and smartphone support it.

      If you prefer using third-party software, you can also consider applications like “Pushbullet” or “AirDroid” for Android devices, or “iCloud Drive” for iOS devices. These apps provide easy file transfer options and can work on Windows as well.

      Remember that the actual transfer speed will also depend on the capabilities of your smartphone, Wi-Fi hardware, and any other network traffic that may be using your Wi-Fi network at the same time. However, if everything is set up correctly, you should be able to achieve high transfer speeds within your local network.

      Transfer files directly between your smartphone and PC

      In reply to File transfer smartphone->pc and vice versa

      Hi Peter,

      Transferring files directly between your smartphone and PC using your home Wi-Fi network is a convenient way to manage your data. To achieve the highest transfer speed, here are a few steps you can follow:

      Ensure a Strong Wi-Fi Signal: Make sure your smartphone and PC are connected to the same Wi-Fi network, and that the Wi-Fi signal is strong. A weak signal can lead to slower transfer speeds.

      Use a File Transfer App: While you prefer not to use third-party software, you can consider using a dedicated file transfer app like ‘SendAnywhere’ or ‘Shareit’ for seamless file sharing. These apps often provide faster transfer speeds compared to using built-in methods.

      File Format and Size: The size and format of the files you’re transferring can impact transfer speed. Larger files may take longer, and certain file types may transfer faster than others.

      Check Smartphone Settings: On your smartphone, make sure that Wi-Fi is turned on, and the phone is set to ‘File Transfer’ or ‘Media Transfer Protocol (MTP)’ mode, depending on the device. This ensures a direct connection to your PC.

      Adjust PC Settings: On your PC, ensure that sharing and network discovery settings are enabled. This allows your smartphone to connect to your PC seamlessly.

      Check Network Configuration: If one PC had a faster transfer rate previously, ensure that both your router and smartphone settings are optimized. You can access your router’s settings to make sure it’s configured for the highest possible data transfer rate.

      Transfer during Off-Peak Hours: If you’re concerned about internet speed affecting the transfer, try conducting file transfers during off-peak hours when your network is less congested.

      Use Google Nearby Share which is quite reliable

      If you want to create a FTP server then just share the folder by
      Go to the Folder > Right Click > Properties > Sharing > Advanced Sharing > Share this folder

      Now you can find that folder on other computers Network app connected to the same network , it doesn’t matter if it is LAN or WiFi just anything but the same network.

      For Smartphone use an Application Smart File Manager by Lufick.
