I was trying to setup a connection between two devices using WiFi direct (also called Wi-Fi P2P) and followed the steps described in https://wiki.tizen.org/wiki/IVI/Wi-Fi_Direct . It showed that the devices are capable of finding each other through the command "p2p_find", however, when I input the command "p2p_connect pin/pbc" on both devices, it indicates that the GO Negotiation Failure issue. Below is a detailed information about the devices we used and the operations we did.

Hardware and software

2 USB Wi-Fi devices: TP-link WN722n with atheros chipset ar9271,

Operation system: fedora 20 (64 bit),

wpa_supplicant version: 2.1,

Wireless driver: backpoints 3.13.2-1

.config:

CONFIG_DRIVER_NL80211=y

CONFIG_CTRL_IFACE=y

CONFIG_WPS=y

CONFIG_WPS2=y

CONFIG_P2P=y

CONFIG_AP=y

wpa_supplicant.conf:

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant

ap_scan=1

device_name=p2p_go

device_type=1-0050F204-1

update_config=1

Steps followed:

1, command "p2p_find" on both devices A and B

2, command "p2p_peers"

3, command "p2p_group_add" on device A

4, command "p2p_connect "Device_A_MAC" pin display" on device B (here it will display a PIN_CODE)

5, command "p2p_connect "Device_B_MAC" "PIN_CODE" " on device A

It shows that P2P-GO-NEG-FAILURE status=-1, and I also tried the commands described in http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/OMAP_Wireless_Connectivity_NLCP_WiFi_Direct_Configuration_Scripts , However it cannot fix/workaround the Go Negotiation Failure issue

So I was wondering if I was missing something in the above steps or the chipset (ar9271) not fully support Wi-Fi direct feature?

Thanks so much for all your help!

If you're using GNOME, the wifi settings dialog has a "Use as a Hot Spot" button that would greatly simplify what you're trying to do.
