I bougth a new samsung Tablet Galaxy TAB S5e.

I wanted to use as extended monitor of my HP PC with Windows 10 at 64 Bits.

I downloaded and installed your software  for evalution in future in our company.

I see on server 2 Ip address: one for  my lan  and one for wifi.

If I connect using the lan address everything works fine but I noticed  lag on images...

I understand that , it uses as server the lan BUT  it is using the Wifi to send images on the Tablet...

If I disable the wifi because I want to run faster on USb C ... it does not connect anymore with the server....

Is it possible to conect a PC and tablet just using USBC ,in order to have an higher troughput?.

Best Reagards

Hi,

there is a technology issue: USB-C needs drivers and don't speak internet protocols, but the connection between SpaceDesk’s server and viewer is basing on these protocols.

Well, you consider a cable connection, why not using a USB-Network-Adapter and integrating the tablet in the LAN? By that you also eliminating connection delays in a overcrowded WIFI-connection. (Occurring especially on 2.4 GHz-spectrum.)

Cheers.

USB connection is possible using "USB Tethering" (this should also work with USB-C).
WiFi Direct connection is just as fast as USB connection (needs a WiFi adapter in the PC).
To improve WiFi performance, the router needs to be bypassed.

Just configure PC or Android device as WiFi Hotspot.
Then connect to the hotspot before connecting spacedesk.

For details check the spacedesk instruction manual chapter "Performance Tuning"

PS: WiFi Direct will soon be supported by spacedesk connect screen

Marcel, I am sure, you know a lot more in this matter than me. But when I am doing your suggestion and setting up the USB-tethering on my mobile device while it is connected with the Wifi, my PC starts to prioritize this route and all my traffic is using the Wifi instead of the faster and more stable Ethernet-connection. And if I understood giaga correct, his PC is connected to the network with the Ethernet-Port. Or I am misinterpreted the whole situation and quoting a lot of BS‽

So is it possible to extend monitors with windows 10 through USB without sharing an internet connection?

Hi @simplyfaisal,
current spacedesk does not support native USB cable connection yet.
We have it in our list to be implemented but it's low priority at the moment.
For now only USB tethering approach is possible for establishing a private network between your primary and secondary machine, if you want to use USB cable.
