I wanted to share files between my computer and android device but always connecting them with a cable is a trouble. Is there a way to use my phone's WLAN network and my PC's WLAN to do this(without any internet connection), kind of like how Filetransfer software works on two android devices? The file transfer software that I mention of only ranges for a short distance for android devices, I just want to use the two WLAN networks of my PC and android devices to share files between PC and my device and use no internet resources at all since the network here is not so good.


There are many File Transfer Software available for Android which can transfer file wirelessly between PC and android phone, some of the most popular applications are listed below. The steps to establish a connection are very simple and given in these application only, but for Xender I have enlisted all the steps for better understanding.
