Claim of US Patent No. 11,032,859

1. An electronic device, comprising:a network interface configured to connect to an internet;
a wireless communication circuit configured to support directional communication in a frequency band between 20 GHz to 100 GHz;
a processor electrically connected with the network interface and the wireless communication circuit; and
a memory electrically connected with the processor, wherein the memory stores instructions that, when executed by the processor, cause the processor to:
establish a first wireless communication channel with a first external electronic device using the wireless communication circuit,
establish a second wireless communication channel with a second external electronic device using the wireless communication circuit,
obtain information associated with positions of the first external electronic device and the second external electronic device,
detect communication, via the electronic device, between the first external electronic device and the second external electronic device based on receiving, from the first external electronic device, a data packet to be received by the second external electronic device,
enable the first external electronic device and the second external electronic device to directly connect to each other in the frequency band at least partially based on the information, and
based on a data transmission speed of the communication via the electronic device or a data transmission speed of direct communication between the first external electronic device and the second external electronic device, enable the first external electronic device and the second external electronic device to perform communication via another electronic device.
