I'm looking for an adapter that can turn my desktop pc into a wifi-direct enabled computer (without using another access point or router). Now, as I'm looking into it, it's quite unclear how to do this. I was thinking there would be some kind of wifi-direct USB device that I plug in like a bluetooth adapter, and bingo. But I can't find a single one!
I go to the Wifi Alliance website:http://www.wi-fi.org...r-wi-fi/wi-fi-direct
then I go to where it says "product finder", which sends me here:http://www.wi-fi.org...i-fi-direct-products
Which is basically an empty page.
So where are these devices?
I don't want a Miracast or anything, because that's basically a restricted-use device. I want an adapter that will connect the computer directly and then I can do anything that I normally do over wifi. I don't want Miracast dictating what I can and can't do. But that seems to be where the tech is at currently. However, I'm not sure, and it's not clear, and so forth.
It appears to me that the "industry" is keeping wifi-direct out of the spotlight, because the technology is definitely in most of the newer high end devices (phones, game controllers, HDMI adapters like chromecast) and all the implementations so far are quite restricted. You will not be able to take advantage of the technology in an open manner.
Anyway, so I want an adapter basically.
