Question by AuYong: How to access your laptop media files using your tablet?
I usually download my media files using my laptop. Normally, if i want to watch the movies I downloaded using my tablet I need to transfer the files to the internal memory of my tablet. I am wondering whether there is an easier method, like maybe connecting the tablet to the laptop using an usb cable and then watch the movies straight without needing to transfer the files. I tried some wireless method but snce that my wifi is really, really slow, The movies lag a lot… Thanks in advance!

If you are running Android OS then you should go the market on tablet and downland the app “Air Droid” that should solve your problem :)

    Hotter than the sidewalk in Phoenix in July, October 8, 2007

    This review is from: D-Link Wireless N+300 Mbps Extreme-N Gigabit Router (DIR-655) (Personal Computers)

    First off, the really tough thing about wireless routers is that your performance can vary dramatically from someone elses. Whether its your hardware, your software, spyware, configuration of your house, your ISP, what type of cordless phone you use, or a myriad of other things, your experience may be entirely different from your best friend’s. So, this isn’t so much a review of the router as it is a review of my experience with it.

    The Good

    This router has all of the bells and whistles with the exception of dual band broadcasting. QoS, WISH, VPN, Port Forwarding, all levels of security, etc. It has Gigabit wired ports. You cannot get anything more elsewhere without doubling the price. It is all packaged within an attractive set up that provides hope that this will be your last router for quite some time. Set up is easy and straight forward. And, most importantly, you literally cannot get a faster router when within 30 feet.

    The Bad
    I really wanted to keep this router but I couldn’t. My main problem was heat. After a few hours of use (just being on at all), this router was almost too hot to touch. I actually exchanged it figuring it must be a bad router but the new one was the same way. And, more importantly, when it got hot, I got intermittent lag via my wire machine on my internet traffic. Games that played flawlessly on my old Buffalo router started lagging; video started stuttering; downloads started pausing. Diagnosed it with my ISP as being on my side of their modem. When my old router was plugged in, all problems went away. D-Link tried to help me but there was a language barrier and no matter what we did with QoS and WISH, it didn’t go away. I had to return the router.

    The Ugly
    FYI: Blue lights are pretty but REALLY bright. Seriously, you could read by them.

    Like I said, I really wanted to keep it but I had to replace it instead. Your experience may vary so I would encourage you to try it because it is a very feature-rich router. Just keep your old one handy just in case.

    P.S. Owned it for three weeks before returning it.

    Best Wireless Router I Have Ever Owned…By FAR, February 14, 2007
    Neil Gandhi “chilldizzle” (Dublin, CA) –

    This review is from: D-Link Wireless N+300 Mbps Extreme-N Gigabit Router (DIR-655) (Personal Computers)

    Im sitting on this thing right now. Man oh man…im getting a “very good” signal where my connection used to be dropping…

    I used to have a few problems with WiFi. The first problem was obviously the range…as I said a few moments ago, the DIR-655 fixed that…I mean, even though it claims 6x range, but I was going to be happy with just a 25% improvement…I seriously think that this router increased my range 50-75%!

    I used to always be frustrated with the lack of settings in many routers. Some would have QoS (Quality of Service…something that can prioritize important internet activity like Voice Over IP…internet phone) but it didnt really work. Some would be lacking in semi-advanced routing features…others would barely have any non-novice features at all…This one has plenty of options for the advanced user to have a lot of fun screwing with settings. The most beautiful thing about it though, is that there is a wizard in the interface so that even the most novice of users can set up a great network with strong security. It also has context sensitive online help…what that is, is when you are trying to adjust settings and you dont know what something means, there is a little help button right there that you can click to get an explanation right then and there! Its kinda like the Yin-Yang of routers…

    I want to mention that I have been looking at draft-N routers for a few weeks now and have been reading the reviews. The reason that I am writing this review is that it was so hard for me to find a good review on this router. Cnet doesnt even have an official review (as of 2/13/07) but it does have very positive user comments. From my homework though, (user reviews, and more importantly official reviews from Cnet, engadget, etc) every Draft-N wireless router has some kind of problem. Some dont work well in environments with more than a couple neighboring networks, some dont have good throughput, and some dont have better range. Again, I didn’t want to buy this one because I couldn’t find any solid review on it. After going through a couple of different Draft-N routers, Let me help you out. This is the one.

    BTW…im not running an “N” wireless adapter…this thing even increases the range of “B” and “G” signals. GREAT JOB D-LINK!

    Fast Enough for HD-DVD Playback, October 12, 2007
    Robert Salita “Software Developer” (CHI PAR PHX SYD PDX CLD NKC) –

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: D-Link Wireless N+300 Mbps Extreme-N Gigabit Router (DIR-655) (Personal Computers)

    Very satisfied. Smaller than expected. Fast enough to play HD-DVDs wirelessly to my notebook (Dell Inspiron E1505, 802.11BGN, 945GM, Core Duo (2) 2GHz, Vista Premium, Arcsoft Digital Theater, D-Link DNS-323 NAS). Great speed and coverage. Also handles HDTV perfectly via HDHomeRun device.

    Don’t forget to upgrade firmware.

    Update 11-Nov-2007: This router may be my biggest gadget surprise this year. It continues to perform better than expected, completely solving all past wireless issues and handling all tasks such as streaming HD-DVD.

    Update 7-Apr-2011: Another reviewer reports that the device’s adapter is no longer dual voltage. References to voltage have been removed? Interested in a versatile travel router? I recommend TRENDnet 300Mbps Wireless-N Travel Router Kit TEW-654TR (Black). It’s wireless, remarkably small, 100-240 volts, has an Ethernet port.

  4. Of course you can. If you connect your tablet with USB cable to your laptop, you can watch movies on your laptop with no need to transfer them from tablet. Just check the USB connection options on your tablet and enable option called “USB mass storage device” or something like that. This way, when you connect your tablet to a computer it acts like a simple USB Flash Drive.

    And wait… Did I understand it correctly? You cannot watch movies from your tablet’s memory card unless you transfer them to internal memory? That’s weird. Or you bought a shi**y tablet.

  5. Yes, assuming you’re using an Android tablet, go to Settings > Connect to PC and select “disk drive”. Then you can connect your tablet to your laptop using a USB cable and watch movies directly off the tablet’s hard drive.

    Seriously, if your wifi is that slow it’s time to get a new router!!!
