WiFi Direct Connection Disconnects within 60 Seconds

by BlackBerry Development Advisor on ‎10-09-2013 02:56 PM (1,785 Views)

Problem

 

Two BlackBerry 10 smartphones connect over WiFi Direct, but the connection is terminated in less than 60 seconds from when it was created while in good coverage.

 

Cause

 

There is an issue in BlackBerry OS 10.2 where repeatedly scanning for WiFi Direct devices causes active WiFi Direct connections to be terminated.

 

Resolution

 

This will be fixed in a future BlackBerry OS release.

 

Workaround

 

Perform a WiFi Direct scan only once, or if you need to scan multiple times, insert a delay of at least 5 seconds between the completion of the previous scan and starting a new one.
