Question [NEED] Network Browsing App

Is there an application that allows you to connect the transformer to access a network drive at my work?

I can connect to the company's wireless, but is there a file browsing application that allows me to map the network drive as a folder on my tablet?

In addition to ES File Explorer, Fing is pretty good at telling you what is on your network and helping to troubleshoot.

Fing is very good for scanning ports on running machines and has built in wake on lan as well. I highly recommend it!

For browsing SMB shares, ES File Explorer has been the best for me so far.
