NOTE: i believe for the below to work you also need (or used too) an Uberkernel type kernel which supports CIFS shares and the likes, i cant remember if this works on the stock kernel.

Network Drives - Enyo Network Drive Mapper
go there and aquire version 1.0.2, install it and your good to go.
heres an example of a touchpad and pre both setup using wifi sharing and drive mapper.
EXAMPLE TOUCHPAD IP: 192.168.0.5
EXAMPLE PRE3 IP: 192.168.0.10
lets imagine your wifi sharing app on BOTH devices has been setup to share /media/internal/ the share name is likely to be Internal. If you already have wifi sharing working fine on both then we can skip the config/use of the wifi sharing app and just move onto configuring Drive Mapper.
In our example we first run drive mapper on the Touchpad, we click "ADD PROFILE", now enter a name for this share, its the Pre3 were making a shared link for so call it "Pre3-Share". Next field is DRIVE PATH, this will be the IP Address then share name we made on the pre3 so in this example we enter 192.168.0.10/Internal now in the MOUNT TO FOLDER box simply enter shares/pre3.
Its that easy, we dont need ANY other details, the other boxes are for usernames/passwords which typically will be for PC shares if they were setup, luckily we dont need them so click SAVE then simply click on the Pre3 entry, a spinner activates and the app looks for your share, if successful you get a TICK on the entry, if it didnt work, click the I/Info button and check your details are correct. (ofc the wifi app needs to be running on the pre3 or it will just fail)
If all was well, launch InternalZ, browse to /media/internal/shares, you should now see a "Pre3" folder, click in there and you should now see the contents of your Pre3's /media/internal folder.
If this works, you will be glad to know the reverse applies on the pre3, do exactly the same in Drive mapper on the pre3, only you change the IP to the touchpads address and ofc change all mention of Pre3 to Touchpad.
