I'm still running on a trial for Flexihub, testing if this solution will work for me. I have 4 machines in use right now, 3 of them are Windows 10 (Win10.1, Win10.2, Win10.3), and one Windows 7 (Win7.1). Win10.1 has 4 USB wifi adapters attached (all the same model, Realtek RTL8811AU), which I am trying to share to the other machines. Win10.1 is within range of a hotspot, but the other machines are not, and I'm trying to get them all connected to that same hotspot for testing.
So far, I have only been successful in connecting all 3 of the client machines to the Win10.1 host. They ran pretty well for a few hours, but then the wifi adapter on Win10.2 stopped working. The wifi adapter still appeared in my network connections, but it was disabled. If I tried to enable it, nothing happened and it would stay disabled. So I disconnected the USB device (which removed the network adapter), and then tried to reconnect it. But when I tried to reconnect, Flexihub now says "Failed to connect to device" and "Operation error". Restarting the flexihub service on Win10.2 did not fix the issues, and restarting the machine entirely did not fix it either.
So I disconnected all USB devices from Win10.1, and then on Win10.1 I restarted the Flexihub service. This allowed Win10.2 to reconnect to Flexihub and use the wifi adapter again...but then Win10.3 and Win7.1 could not connect (same error). I restarted the Flexihub service on each of those machines, and after the restart Win10.3 could connect, but Win7.1 could not. I restarted the Win7.1 machine entirely, and that allowed it to reconnect...but a few minutes later Win10.3 lost it's connection.
It's been 2 days, and I've tried countless permutations of restarting the Flexihub service on each of the 4 machines, and restarting the machines completely. I finished by restarting all 4 machines at the same time, but nothing has solved the issue. It appears random which clients will be able to connect to the USB wifi adapters, and reinstalling the software does not seem to help either.
Looking for some suggestions here, or some more diagnostic information I can check. When the clients are connected, it seems to work well...but only for a while. Even when I tested with just 1 client (Win10.2 connected to Win10.1 wifi adapter), it was only stable for a couple of hours and then it just randomly disabled the wifi adapter again and actually froze explorer on Win10.2. Any help is appreciated.
