I'm trying to share files on my PC with my Android phone.

I've tried going through all the articles I can find on file sharing and home networks but nothing so far has worked.

On my phone I have a file explorer with a "network neighbourhood" option, clicking on that I can see my PC. When I click on the PC I am prompted for username and password which I give, but I then get "connection failed".

I'm on Windows 10. I just have a TP-Link Powerline and regular WiFi to connect my PC.

This is the sort of articile I've been using to set up file sharing on my PC.

Any thoughts on what I might be doing wrong?
