    Environment:
    PC: Dell Laptop using Windows 10 Pro v21H1
    Tablet: Sony Xperia Z4 (SGP771), Android 7.1.1 (highest available for hardware)

    Connection:
    WiFi
    (USB tether is not reliable due to Windows10 inability to assign tethered network connection as private network, despite best efforts)

    Drivers:
    Latest drivers downloaded from spacedesk.net within last week.
    Android App uninstalled and reinstalled on tablet within last week.

    Issues:
    1) Regular disconnection issues, more than once an hour.
    2) Mouse speed on 2nd monitor is far slower than on main monitor, and thus unreliable.
    3) Touchscreen unreliability* means that mouse control on 2nd monitor is unreliable.

    * Xperia Z4 tablet does not have oleophopic screen and thus deposits on screen can affect touchscreen by causing phantom inputs.

    Suggestions:
    1) RE Issue 3: Include option on Android App to disable touchscreen inputs.
    2) RE Issue 2: Include some means of adjusting mouse speed on 2nd monitor
    3) RE Issue 1: Improve reliability of connection. This Issue did NOT exist 6 months ago.

    Please advise on methods to improve reliability of connection.

    Hi RB,

    Suggestions:
    1) RE Issue 3: Include option on Android App to disable touchscreen inputs.

    it’s already there.
    Press the 3 dots in the upper right corner > Input devices > enable/disable as you need.

    About mouse speed, maybe change/reduce the client setting for “Quality / performance” a bit to see if that performs better.
    Also you could use your Win10 hotspot functionality to have the shortest possible connection between devices to not have to go through the Access point which could be a limitation.

    Question:
    The USB tethering can not be setup as “private” network. Please help me understand why that is important since you are using a cable between the 2 devices. What is the concern?

    Ah – that’s good, thanks for pointing me at that.

    I believe that it’s what is preventing spacedesk on the tablet seeing the spacedesk client on the laptop. It just ‘doesn’t work’.

    In Win10 networking it appears that the ‘public’/’private’ settings on networks allow differing things to pass through the connection. (I can only comment on what I’ve found and experienced, I’m NOT a network person at all).

    About mouse speed, maybe change/reduce the client setting for “Quality / performance” a bit to see if that performs better.

    I’m already at 30fps and approx 60% for image quality.

    Will try the hotspot idea.

    Just to be on the safe side. The android device (client app) should see the “server” (WIN10 driver software) not the client software. I guess you installed it correctly since Wifi is working.

    In this post I mentioned my setup and connection process for USB tethering.

    If you allowed the installer to adjust the firewall and add spacedesk, it should work.
