    Hi everyone,

    I want to extend a laptop screen between 2 laptops by using Windows 10 'Connect'/'Project' feature. We have 2 wifi routers, where 1 is an older router and 1 is an newer one. The problem is that the laptops only find each other through 'Connect' on the wifi of the newer router, but not on the wifi of the older router. The 2 wifi's have the same settings iirc.

    What could be the cause the the laptops cannot find each other through 'Connect'? Does it require certain hardware of the router to function?
    Can the issue be solved only by buying a newer router or is there perhaps an alternative?

    Also, can both laptops see each on the same network?

    , thanks. One setting I missed was the one that you need to put a adapter in your laptop/tablet. I got it working once now, than it stopped working lol (i think the problem is with my laptop that is a bit older).
