How do I connect to other devices through Wi-Fi Direct on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S?

Wi-Fi Direct allows devices to connect to each other directly via Wi-Fi. All devices must be Wi-Fi Direct-enabled for such a connection.

Connecting to Wi-Fi Direct devices

  1. From the Home screen tap Apps and then tap Settings.
  2. Tap the Connections tab and then tap Wi-Fi.

    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.
