I'm hoping someone can tell me if the Acer Iconia PAU30 (dual touchscreen laptop/tablet) supports WIDI.
Looking at the requirements it has a Core i5 480M which is supported but it has a broadcomm Wifi card which looks like it isn't compatible as it needs to be Intel Wifi. Can anyone tell me if it will work?
I need to determine if I can use WIDI or if I need to get a WHDI dongle instead. I don't want to purchase a WIDI reciever only to find it doesn't work.
Also if I am streaming a film over wifi could the WIDI/WHDI dongle degrade the signal or would it not as one operates on the 5Khz band?
Looking at it a bit more I seem to have Intel HD graphics and the correct processor so only the wifi module is incompatible. The laptop actually enables you to remove the wifi module though. It is a seperate small square circuit board attached to the motherboard with two small screws.
So could this wifi module be replaced with an Intel one? Are compatible modules available? Would that make WiDi work?
