the 8120, 8320, and 8820 have WiFi. No other models do. Welcome to the forums

Depends on what you mean.

As others have stated, he 8800 has no WiFi, so you cannot connect directly to your network.

If you're asking if you can access files on your home network (using a program like Rove Mobile File Manager), then... maybe.

Your home network needs to be accessible to the Internet. This is, in general, a bad idea unless you really know what you're doing regarding setting up your computer and router's security.

Unless you REALLY have need to access files remotely, I'd recommend that you not try this.

Is this what you're asking?

8800 does not have the built-in protocols to browse computers in any network.

Your best bet would be an FTP application like BeFTP and a home FTP server.

I use that and it works great for me.

Better yet, the new BeFTP allows one button data synchronization between my local device's media card and a remote directory.

Makes a snap to transfer data back and forth!

Always possible, but doubtful. The 8820 is the closest thing to an 8830 with WiFi. If you have, for example, AT&T, you could go with that.

Except for the fact that the 8820 is not really like the 8830, except in form factor...

True. Which is why I said "the closest." I didn't mean that they were exactly the same. I should have been more clear.
