Windows 8 Wi-Fi Direct using Control Panel -> 'add a device' RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am using Windows 8 Release preview 8400 to verify wi-fi direct functionality.After using ‘Add a Device’ wizard from control panel the win8 device becomes Autonomous GO and connection is active only for about a minute. Is there any way to change and increase this default value in which connection remains active for more time?

    Thanks!

  • Hi,

    It will scan all available devices in the network. Therefore, it depends on your network environment. I think this feature will be improved in the next version.

  • Does it mean there's no native app to support wi-fi direct on windows 8?
