I understand that you have some questions in regards of the Intel® Wireless Display Technology.
Note that the Intel® Wireless Display Technology will be available in your computer only if your system complies with all the requirements for this technology.
The requirements can be located at:
Be aware that one of the requirements is that the software must be preinstalled and enabled by the system manufacturer, if that is not the case the widi technology will not be available in your system.
Thank you for the generic and uninformative answer, but as you can see, I got it working. Why does intel website for processor specs for i3-2357m shows it supports WiDi, but then WiDi support site only shows a few processor. I think various Intel branches of CPU, graphics, and WiDi team needs to do a better job of consistent drivers and cooperation.
Teaberry, I agree with your observation 100%. You pay for a company's technology and that's the type of answer you get back from them. It's the long way of saying "we don't know, but you probably a computer expert that knows our product better than ourselves". If only they'd at first read the question.
I've been trying to get my Alienware M11x R3 to work with Widi for over a year. I've kept it updated with the latest drivers and even updated the firmware in the Netgear PTV2000HD. I know the Netgear device works as I can get my wife's HP dv6-6173cl to connect without a problem.
My Alienware M11x R3 is configured with:
- Intel i7-2617M processor
- 16GB memory
- Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N + WiMAX 6250 AGN wireless adapter
- NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M - 188.8.131.5273
- Intel PROSet/Wireless 184.108.40.206 driver
- Intel Processor Graphics 3000 - 220.127.116.1196 driver
- Intel WiDi software 18.104.22.168
- Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
I would truly love to get this working!
