You can do this - but it's much simpler to share files by using a USB flash drive. By the time you make the connection, provide your credentials, and log onto the wireless network - you can easily copy the files needed to a flash drive (and that doesn't require that you have a network connection),

If you'll be regularly transferring files back and forth, the need for file sharing on a network will become more important.
