    Is there anyway, other then Dropbox or the like, to wirelessly transfer files to my Galaxy Tab 10.1?

    I was wondering if there is something like a shared network folder that can be used similar to Win7 Network & Sharing for PC's on the same wifi network.

    I would like to browse or play pics & movies from the tablet, but are stored on my PC once they are DL from the internet.
    I can do this from a blu-ray player I have that is networked to my PC.

    Samba would be another option.

    Drop Box works well with the Acer A500 tablet - I use it extensively. I also have a USB drive on my home network and have no problem accessing it with numerous file applications, such as ES File Explorer and similar applications.
