    Scenario:
    • I have a link between Android phone and a PC. It could be cellular, it could be Wi-Fi
    • I want the phone to communicate with a nearby device using Wi-Fi Direct.
    I think I can do this, but what happens to the PC link when the Wi-Fi direct session begins?

    You will lose the other wifi connection when WiFi Direct starts, as the phone is only capable of connecting to a single device.
