Wi-Fi direct questions RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi! Sir,

    I would like to ask some questions related to Wi-Fi direct.

    1. As I knew, Wi-Fi direct is a requirement of Wi-Fi device in Win 8. I would like to know how to turn on/off Wi-Fi direct functionality. Or, is it turned on by default? I had tried to find the device with Wi-Fi direct capability via Add device of Control Panel using two NB machines installed with Win 8 Preview version, it always show nothing.

    2. I would like to confirm if the pairing procedure is triggered by click Add device of Control panel from both sides concurrently. Am I right?

    3. As I try to pair two Samsung tablet machines using Wi-Fi direct, it always failed. The error code is 0x80070057, type 3. Does someone try this?

    4. Does it possible to find device with Wi-Fi direct capability and pair with it via WinRT API by programming?

    5. Does it possible to use Wi-Fi direct by Desktop mode app?

    6. Does it possible to share Internet connection via Wi-Fi direct by Metro style app or Desktop mode app?

    7. Does the hostednetwork (SoftAP) still work in Win 8? If yes, does it possible to launch SoftAP and Wi-Fi diect functionality concurrently?

    Thanks a lot
