Wifi Direct Probleme RRS feed

  • Question

  • We want to establish a connection via Wifi Direct between a Windows service and an app for Android. It's a hard job because documentation is thin and even the example from Microsoft doesn't work stable.

    Our main questions are:
    - why does it take more than 
    30 seconds until the connection is established succesful? This is the same with the example from Microsoft together with an Android device.
    - why does the f
    unktion „fromIdAsync“ fail so often? It may take up to 50 tries until it works and we can't find out why or how to change that.

    We are happy for every hint.

  • Hi,

    Thank you for posting MSDN forum.

    Did you get more error message or other exception. the error message would be helpful for solving issue.

    For wifi issue, you can post the issue on the following forum.



    Since the current forum just discuss general issues about developing applications for Windows desktop. your issue is related to windows service and Wifi for android.

    the issue beyond the scope of current forum. I will move the case to off-topic forum.


    Best Regards,
