    Can't connect to Miracast


    Hello, i just upgraded to Windows 10 so i can connect to Miracast on my LG Smart TV.

    Whenever i try to connect my tv, it's either my wifi disconnected or my monitor sleeps then turns on again.
    I checked if my PC supports Miracast & it says it's available, I know the problem is with my computer because i can connect my android phone to the tv, although i tried everything yet i can't seem to find the problem. help?

    Hi abalaandrea,

    I have a very similar problem. I'm afraid I have no clue what to do about, that's why I'm on the forum, but as I was trying to find anyone who had posted a similar problem to mine, I found your post and it just made me feel a bit better that I wasn't the only one. I thought since you've had no responses yet, that it might make you feel a bit better too to know that there are more of us with the same stupid problem and you're not on your own. No help at all I know, sorry, I hope we both get an answer soon.

    Best regards
    Mark

    It's as simple as updating your WiFi Drivers to support "WiFi Direct" in Windows 10 which allows Miracast

    Hi theveterans,
    I don't know if this will work for abalaandrea, but I have updated, every driver on my system, uninstalled and reinstalled them several times and it has had no effect on the problem.

    Let's see the features allowed for your WiFi by typing this in command prompt:

    netsh wlan show driver
    An output would like this:

    Hi the veterans, I'm not sure if you meant me or abalaandrea (the original poster), if you mean me then first let me apologise for hijacking someone else's thread, I have actually posted my own under drivers and hardware. There's also a lot more info there about what I have tried as solutions etc.

    I am having problems connecting my desktop to my smart tv.
    I have a custom built desktop that I want to connect to my tcl Roku tv.
    now the tv has mirracast beta and I am able to connect my phone and tablet with little effort.
    when I go to the connect in the action center it tells me that your pc doesn't support miracast, so it cannot project wirelessly.
    how can I make it?

    my desktop is windows 10 that I upgraded to from 7.
    I bought a Wi-Fi usb stick to try seeing that the desktop didn't have Wi-Fi .

    I did that command prompt for my wireless display supported info. here is what is says

    Wireless Display Supported: No (Graphics Driver: No, Wi-Fi Driver: Yes)

    is there a way to change the wireless display supported into to yes? would that make it work?
    or what do I need to buy to make the pc able to send the screen to my tv?
    a usb transmitter maybe?
    or a usb Bluetooth stick?

    thanks for you help...

    Miracast issue - "Something went wrong your display couldn't connect"


    Hi,
    I am no sure why this is still a problem. It seems like quite a few users have this issue with Miracast. I have already updated my BIOS and re-installed Windows 10 Pro, with updates to all drivers using the Intel driver update utility. I've disabled firewalls, uninstalled antivirus software and tried to sequentially remove and update my chipset, graphics and wireless drivers (all Intel). I have installed the latest WIDI software from Intel as well. I think I have run out of options and contacted Intel to help further - I will update this forum once I get any further. The funny thing is that Miracast worked for an hour when I first got my computer and then the system crashed. After restoring and going through all the updates, I still cannot connect to my TV (Wireless HDMI Dongle) and consistently get this annoying message "Something went wrong your display couldn't connect". dxdiag shows "Miracast: Available, with HDCP". As you can imagine, this is extremely frustrating.
    Here are my computer specs:
    My computer: NUC6i5SYH
    Operating System: Windows 10 Pro N 64-bit (10.0, Build 10586) (10586.th2_release_sec.160630-1736) Language: English (Regional Setting: English)
    System Manufacturer:
    System Model: BIOS: SYSKLi35.86A.0044.2016.0512.1734
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6260U CPU @ 1.80GHz (4 CPUs), ~1.8GHz

    Miracast: Available, with HDCP
    Graphics Card: Intel(R) Iris(TM) Graphics 540
    Wifi Card: Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260

    Hi everybody
    Same probleme just the day after moving from Windows 8. to Windows 10.
    On 31/07/2016, Microsoft Support Verification callnumber 0970019090, with a Microsoft Support Code on verifyme@microsoft.com during an hour and a half we tried everything possible, no solution. Everytime, after connecting, appeared "Nous n'avons pas pu assurer la connection", the same in french as "Something went wrong your display couldn't connect" .
    Suddenly the man disepeared from phone, saying he was looking for a solution, letting me with a black screen, he had the power on my machine!
    He also had my phone nummer, but did'nt phone again!
    Is he always looking for?...!
    I mean, they have at this time NO solution. A Microsoft Product, unable to connect with the new microsoft System Windows 10, without warning before Updating!

    I have had this problem at my office for a day or two. The way I solved it was by removing the current Miracast device from my devices and printers, then added a new device. I installed the same Miracast device and it worked within seconds. Hope this helps someone
