Wi-Fi Direct legacy AP WinRT API - How to start an Access point with own DHCP server or a static ip address RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been investigating the Wi-Fi Direct Legacy Connection C++ WRL Demo found from:

    https://github.com/Microsoft/Windows-classic-samples/tree/master/Samples/WiFiDirectLegacyAP

    I have my tablet connected via WiFiDirectLegacy access point. The tablet is automatically logged out from Wi-FI every 10 seconds and logged in again, if I give the tablet a fixed IP (eg 10.0.0.3) address or set my own DHCP server at the WiFiDirectLegacy access point. Only when My Table assignt a IP address from the started WiFiDirectLegacAP DHCP server (192.168.137.1) , than work the connection perfektly.
    does anyone have an idea how to solve the problem? how i use another Ip adresses for  my Clients without connections problems?

    THank you

  • Why do you need a fixed ip address and cannot use the ip assigned by the AP?

    You can have two ip addresses on the interface.

  • Hi,

    This forum is about c++ development. For your case which is more related to UWP, I will help you move thread to UWP forum for better support.

  • Hi ,

    Since the problem is more related to Peer-to-Peer networking, I'll help you to move this thread to the Peer-to-Peer Networking for Windows Desktop. You could get more professional support there.

    Thank you for your patience.

    Best regards,
