    Connecting to my home network

    I have an Asus Transformer, Honeycomb 3.1

    How can I connect to the NAS and network attached printer on my home network? Currently I use nfs and CUPS with the linux attached PCs and notebooks.

    Must be having a "senior moment" the NAS (QNAP 219TS) has a browser interface which will let me download music docs and photos. Still would like to print docs from tablet though.

    Do you have a File Manager installed on your Xoom?
    Do you have a printer Driver for that Printer?

    Hi,
    Thanks for the reply. I'm using the default file manager which comes with the Asus, issue was mounting the NAS filesystem so it could be read, however using the browser I can upload and download files using the NAS web based file manager, which is all I need with a tablet.

    Printing on a network connected HP6412 works with PRINTERSHARE (a non free app) which is ok by me. I don't mind paying for what works, and printershare does.

    So all in all just what I needed.
