Question

Samsung IP camera, wifi direct feature

Can we use wifi direct feature of samsung IP cameras to connect them directly to Laptop wifi adapter without the need of any additional router? I am working on an OpenCV project and i want to read stream from 3 cameras simultaneously, so i was thinking that i could connect 3 usb wifi adapter to my laptop and connect them directly with cameras. Is this scenario possible?

Some folk won't read links so this nails it for me.

"Connection to multiple other devices is an optional feature that will not be supported in all Wi-Fi Direct-certified devices"

It's dead Jim.

I am using usb wifi adapters

yes i acknowledge that wifi direct is between 1 device and 1 adapter. But i can in use multiple usb wifi adapters in addition to 1 wifi adapter which is already present in my laptop. this will increase the number of wifi devices which could be connected to my laptop. In that case, is it possible. Or consider it this way. If i only use one IP camera with wifi direct, can i directly use camera stream in my code.

Something for you to test.

Here I solved it in the past with Virtual Router. Since 802.11n in 40MHz OFDM (mode) has but one channel, it's not like you'll get more over the air data with more adapters. But you knew that.
