Since Android phones are now a pain and half to connect to linuz machines using usb cables, l decided to bypass that by using ftp and smb.
l have a wireless router which my fone use to access internet and sometimes my PC(Ubuntu). l enabled a shared folder on the PC.
l then installed AndSMB on my android and set it to access my ubuntu pc through sftp(secure ftp)
If there is a file l want to transfer to the fone, all l do is drop it on the shared folder on the PC, then start my AndSMB on the phone and download it.
lf there is a file on the phone l want to transer to PC, l just choose to share using AndSMB and its uploaded to the PC.
This is saving fiddling with usb wires but now the best download speed l get is 400-800kbs, my router is capable of 54Mb, what can l do to speed things up?
