Attach the PC and Android clients to the WLAN. Normally the BridgePhone client will find the server on its own. It is known that on some WLAN routers the IP number is not found. In this case, find out the IP address of the PC yourself. E.g. On your PC: Start --> Run--> Type cmd --> in the cmd.exe window :type Ipconfig <cr> All connections will be displayed. The IP number will be something like : 192.168.1.20. The last number (20) will vary.
