Hi Guys,

Is there a way to file share between my machines in the setup above?
 
PC - Eternet over power adapters
Macbook Air - WIFI.

Or is the only way of achieving this is both of the machines on WIFI?

Thanks

Whether your machine is connected to your Network via WIFI or PowerLAN does not make a difference.

Interface type doesn't matter, what's needed is for all to be on the same network.

are they on the same network? If so you just share a folder on the PC or allow file sharing on the mac, and just connect over the network..

 

If they're not on the same network, the easiest method is something like dropbox.

as long as the wifi is part of the same "network" (ie same router) that the ethernet is connected to, both machines should just be able to see each other as long as you're putting in the correct IP address of the ethernet adapter in the connect to server window on MacOS (command+K). Making sure it's in the right format of 

 

smb://192.168.0.20

 

or what ever the IP is of your PC
