    Hello,

    While on the road, Wi-Fi reliability can be unpredictable. Is there a way to utilize spacedesk between two or three laptops running Windows 10?

    These laptops only have USB ports available.

    I’m contemplating the following options:
    A. Use two USB cables to directly connect three laptops.
    B. Utilize three USB to RJ45 adapters and establish a network connection solely for spacedesk (3 RJ45 + 3 cables + hub).
    C. Incorporate three additional Wi-Fi USB adapters via USB (though stability might not match options A and B).

    Any advice?

    Thanks for your assistance.

    Wil

    Hi @wil,

    for A. This is not possible for spacedesk since we only support USB cable connections for Android and iOS.
    for B and C. we are not sure if this setup will work and give you your desired result, this set-up is yet to be tested. however, you can still try it at your own risk and see which will work.

    We can only suggest establishing a Wi-Fi Direct connection to create a network between your laptops.
    this can also achieve similar performance as USB. Configure Windows PC or Android device as WiFi Direct (Hotspot) and connect to it before connecting spacedesk. Please check chapter PERFORMANCE TUNING -> Use Wifi Direct / Wifi Hotspot / Wifi Access Point in the instruction manual.
