As more and more households have access to high-speed Internet access, computers tend to be connected all the time. While away from home, users are now carrying mobile devices that are also connected to a wireless network at all times. However, these devices are limited in bandwidth and storage capabilities.

When users browse the network via their device, I propose a system wherein they can download data from that network to their home-based computer by having the device instruct it do so.

When a user is browsing the network, typically there will be content that is too large or is in an unsupported format for the limited device.  Currently that user would cut and paste that URL or make a note of its location so that when they get home they can view/download the content to their home computer.

The proposed system will automate this process, so that in one click of an input medium (e.g., mouse, touchscreen, trackwheel), the data will be saved on the home computer without wasting any resources (e.g., bandwidth or space) of the device.

When a resource is found on a network by the device, the user will have access to a menu item/quick-key shortcut to allow them to save the resource to their home computer.

The device will send an encypted packet to the home-based computer that has a service running listening for such requests. The packet d...
