This publication describes techniques of optimally establishing peer-to-peer connections between a group of wireless devices. In aspects, the techniques are performed by a Connection Manager implemented on one or more of the wireless devices. The Connection Manager utilizes a selection process to select a wireless device from the group to act as the group owner of the peer-to-peer network. Through the selection process, the Connection Manager selects the wireless device that is most suited to become the group owner. For example, the Connection Manager may select as group owner the wireless device with the highest probability of providing optimal data-exchange (i.e., throughput) among the wireless devices, based on factors including device capabilities and/or the concurrency state of the device. The wireless device selected as group owner then configures the peer-to-peer network.
