wpa_supplicant wifi direct setup what to do ???


Hi,

Been some time since I last posted or answered a question here ...

I want to setup wifi direct between an ubuntu trusty box and andriod ... now I've read the guides ... I installed iw and wpa_supplicant from ubuntu's repos ... beyond that nothing is clear ...

Could someone please walk me through the steps ...

Thanks ...

By direct I assume you mean without a router. The two methods are ad-hoc or access point (AP). The AP method does not require any changes to your Android but depends on your wifi hardware. The following guide should help.
