Not a direct solution. But here's a free one:

Setup an FTP server on your home PC (using open source Filezilla Server). Add account for your access (username/password, folder location). Configure your firewall/router to open ports 20/21. Jot down your ADSL public hostname/ip number.

On your android, download any free FTP client, add profile with hostname or ip/username/password.

Everytime you want to show someone a picture or something, use the FTP client, connect to your PC, download the file, show it on your android.

Or you could use dropbox where you can store copies of stuff to a folder on your computer that automatically updates to the cloud. Then you log in on your SGS.

Using broadband connection we can use Internet connection but not Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi offers nice exemption in Internet use. You need Ethernet cable, wireless router and broadband modem for the Wi-Fi connection.
