    Another problem with my nex 5r, I can no more do the wi-fi transfer of the pics from my camera to my pc.

    I say "no more" because it worked flawlessy the first time I tried, then I used only USB for a while and now it doesn't work anymore.

    I give you more detail trying to prevent some of the questions:

    - the camera connects to the wi-fi without problems, I can even access the app store, when I try the transfer it finds the SSID of my network but stops trying to find the pc, it just keep searching for a while, with the correct name!
    - the camera can transfer with no problems the pics to my smartphone.
    - the pc (obvious) can connect to the wi-fi without problem.
    - the playmemories home program is up and running.

    Have you got any hints?

    I personally never transfered to computer yet but when I do it to my table I usually set my NEX-5R to be the source and connect my tablet (Nexus 7) to the SSID broadcasted by NEX-5R.

    It always works for me.
