Note: Wi-Fi must be enabled and turned on in order to use Wi-Fi direct.


3. Tap Wi-Fi Direct to turn it on.

4. Enable Wi-Fi Direct on the device you want to which you wish to connect.

5. On your tablet touch Wi-Fi Direct to scan for the other device.


6. In the scanned list touch the device to which you want to connect or touch Multi-connect to connect to multiple devices.


Note: not all devices support multi-connect.

7. Follow the prompts on both devices to complete the connection. Once connected the device will show as Connected in your list of Wi-Fi Direct devices on your tablet. The icon will display in the Status Bar.
