Connect device to Windows 7 hostednetwork -> No Internet Access needed
I 'm looking for a clean way to communicate between an Android/iOS phone and a Windows 7 laptop. No need for internet connection, just a way for a TCP connection between the phone and the laptop.
I have enabled the hosted network, but there is no connectivity. The laptop has 192.168.173.1 and the phone 192.168.173.3 but ping fails and connections between the two devices fail.
