Why can't one be wired? Home Sharing works, why doesn't AirDrop?
Because the transfer takes place on a ad hoc peer to peer basis not ove the local network.
Should be more flexible than this (I know I can drag stuffs through shared drives on network but...)
Personally I find AirDrop nearly useless in its current form. I use iMessage to send small files around and that seems to work, big files I use Dropbox and send the link using iMessage.
Hey! That's a splendid idea.
Yes, it's nearly useless unless all you have is MacBook. It should work like Home Sharing (works with every Mac on the local network despite its setting up).
Home Sharing works because it is designed as a LAN function. AirDrop is a different feature that allows sending files over a dedicated specific connection to the other client.
You are trying to do LAN connections and that is done through the Finder connecting to a client. Easily done.
