CONFIG_IWLWIFI=m
# CONFIG_IWLWIFI_DEBUG is not set
# CONFIG_IWLWIFI_P2P is not set
# CONFIG_IWLWIFI_EXPERIMENTAL_MFP is not set

I am working from kernel 3.8.2 in which i have CONFIG_IWLWIFI_P2P set, but no way of testing.
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.

Hi brokenman,

I am working on 64bit. Are you able to post me the link to 3.8.2. kernel and I would test for you.

I will also need to have the ozmo driver.

The laptop wireless card would have to support this. You will need something like the HP Wifi mouse or a android smart phone with Wifi Direct enabled.

@cttan
i have answered this already:
viewtopic.php?f=48&t=2802&p=20105#p20105

mind:

Code: Select all

iwlwifi: dvm: remove P2P support
We're not planning to support P2P on older devices, so remove the Kconfig option and associated code for it.
if you really care about this feature then you would have to compile and stick to 3.11 kernel as it's the last one supporting p2p for iwlwifi driver.
sorry about that.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Sorry fanthom. Missed your post.

But I think we have good news as Wifi Direct is incorporated into Wpa_Supplicant v2.0.
Pls see below link:-
http://wireless.kernel.org/en/developers/p2p/howto

Now is how do we get it to work.

dont think so:

Code: Select all

In order to test P2P, you need: 
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
an Atheros ath9k device
OR an ar9170 USB device (with carl9170 driver!)
(OR another device that has a mac80211 driver, but these are known to work, iwlwifi does not currently work with any released microcode) 
and you have iwlwifi - isn't it?
