 Step 1: To transfer files from PC to Android/iPhone Mobile

To transfer your files using WiFi between your PC and phone your PC and Phone (android or iPhone or any other Phone) must support WiFi feature. Almost every PC and smartphones have WiFi feature so nothing to worry about this. Then you have to connect your PC and mobile in one (same) network. If your PC and mobile is connected to any other router’s network or any others computer’s network no problem but both mobile and PC should be connected to same WiFi network that is enough. If you don’t have any WiFi networks don’t worry you can easily create your own network. There are 2 ways to connect PC and mobile in one WiFi network. Just follow any one of these ways.
  • Method 1: To connect in same WiFi Network
First method is to create a WiFi hotspot in your windows 7 or windows 8/8.1 or mac PC. If you don’t know how create WiFi Hotspot See how to create WiFi hotspot and create WiFi hotspot using CMD.
