Wi-Fi Direct-certified devices can form connections with nearly all the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED devices you and your friends already have. You only need one Wi-Fi Direct device to form a group
Well I have one wifi direct certified device and about 10 various wifi certified devices dotted around the house, and every single one of them turns a deaf ear to my wifi direct device (a samsung galaxy phone) - all I ever get is "No devices found".
I guess that leaves four possibilities:
I am extremely unlucky in my choice of wifi devices - possible but not likely.
My wifi direct implementation on the galaxy is faulty.
I am missing something obvious but crucial - happens often.
The wifi alliance are exaggerating - happens very often, not just the wifi alliance, but every technology I have ever used.
I have viewed videos about how to connect with wifi direct, but they all seem to be about connecting two phones together, very often two phones that are both wifi direct certified. So tell me, has anybody ever succeeded in connecting a wifi direct device to a wifi only device as the quote above suggests is possible?
