It is asumed that you have a local network with Wifi in your home. That will be the case in most houses. If you don't have one or if you are away from home, then you can create your own local wireless network (better known as portable WIFI hotspot) using your Android device. Most Android device have this option in the Wireless & Networks part of the Settings app. When it is set up you need to connect your computer to this local network. After that the procedure is the same as decribed above.
