Wi-Fi Direct, connection issue with more than two android devices

+1 vote

Using Wi-Fi direct, I've been able to connect two devices together and pass messages between them. However, when I try to have a third device connect to this group, the WFD connection between the first and second devices either drops, or the third device seems to be ignored.
I haven't been able to find anything specific about one-to-many connections in the documentation. Do they need to be handled in a special way?

I wanted to know if there is a way that make the group owner (group owner is the device who called this method wManager.createGroup() ) know the peers IPs to be able to send data to them over these IPs? and if there is no implemented way in WiFi-direct API to do this issue, can you tell me how I can solve this problem?

I have Fedora 23 and am using the default Gnome 3 desktop environment.

I have two wi-fi networks within reach of my laptop and Fedora always auto-joins with the network with a weaker signal. I believe it is choosing to do so because the weaker signal is the one I first provided a password for months ago.

I have not been able to determine a way to set the wi-fi network auto-join order preference. Is it possible to change the preference order?
