    Hello,

    Just wondering if there is a way(example?) to directly connect two or more Android devices via Wifi?

    For example use one device as a wireless camera and another as a viewer?

    Download PDANet. There is a free version, as well as a paid version. The only restriction on the free version is that it cannot load https (Secure HTTP) pages. OTher than that, the paid and free versions are the same.

    Thanks for the time and effort to bring those links up.
    I am actually wanting to create my own app.

    Hey GIR,

    Only a pleasure dude!

    Hmm to start a new 1 of wifi go here maybe?

    android.net.wifi | Android Developers

    It looks like this app u r trying to create will open port 192.168.2.31:7080 (this is on my Tattoo so don't know what it will be called on ur specific device (ZTE Racer - This phone looks awesome BTW!) or if this is standard on Android? Not too sure, because i haven't played with wifi yet that much for now.

    Hope this helps dude!
