I have the same issue after updating to 8.1. I have updated everything known to man, reset my Netgear device, but it just times out and simply says 'couldn't connect'. There isn't a link that I haven't clicked through your support website to download an update. The screen on the TV changes stating that it is connecting, but then it just times out and goes back to the welcome screen.
I have installed: WiDi Update Tool, WiDi Media Share, have gone through all the self service links and get the same error as the screenshot posted by the user above installing setup184.108.40.206.
May I ask, how were you both directed to Intel® WiDi version 4.3?
Intel® WiDi 4.3 will only install in Intel® “Sandy Bridge” processors. Please use the Miracast* method suggested above. If you have connection problems try uninstalling and reinstalling the Intel® HD Graphics driver manually as it worked for other users.
WiDi is not working properly since 8.1 install. Main problem for me is I can no longer configure to allow connection of legacy devices,
Is there any way of doing this now?
Perhaps this helps: Use Non Certified Play To Devices in Windows 8.1 - Microsoft Community
I hope you can help me out since you're an Expert. I just bought an HP AOI Envy Recline 23-K009C (with Intel i7 4770K and Graphic adapters HD 4600 and NVIDI GeForce GT 730A), Netgear PTV3000 to use Widi but cannot have widi working.
- My HP PC spec: Product information HP ENVY Recline 23-k009c TouchSmart All-in-One Desktop PC | HP® Support
- Netgear PTV3000 is current updated with newest firmware: 2.4.19
- My PC O.S is upgraded to windows 8.1 from preinstalled windows 8.0
- My Graphic driver is up to day (did uninstall and re-install manually many times but widi still not working) and also checked by HP website to confirm all drivers are up to date.
- PC did see PTV3000 and did ask to enter PIN number and successfully see PTV3000 in device list.
- However, when click project in charm, cannot see PTV3000. Try to pick extended screen, duplicated screen, external screen only,... never working.
Very frustrated so far...
Let’s please go back to the moment when you click “Devices”, “Project”, “Add a wireless display”. What happens on the TV screen right after you enter the PIN code?
By the way, can you provide the exact model of the wireless adapter from Device Manager? Does the system have any option to use Intel® HD Graphics only instead of the NVIDIA* integrated graphics adapter?
Hi Joe. I have the same problem as mekabbar. I have a 220.127.116.11 widi driver installed on Windows 8.1 but is not working very good. I tried to install the 18.104.22.168 driver, but i have the same error message as mekabbar.
I tried to install the intel display driver 22.214.171.124.3316 from your link, but no success. I was become an error message:
the driver you want to install has not been tested for this computer. Obtain the appropriate driver from the computer manufacturer. The installer will now exit. I have ASUS K95VJ laptop. I was downloaded this driver from ASUS-s website, but the same error message.
Systems with Windows* 8.1 and third generation Intel® Core processors (Ivy Bridge) or newer use the connection method explained in the article below, instead of using the Intel® WiDi software. Only the Intel® HD Graphics and Intel® Proset software are needed.
Bandesz, in case of installation issues with Intel® HD Graphics driver try the manual installation with the zip file instead.
Some system models, like yours, include switchable graphics (Intel® HD Graphics + third party graphics adapter); in such cases it is strongly recommended to use the driver from the system manufacturer, in this case they have also provided specific instructions in their website.
I've been struggling connecting my laptop which is Lenovo carbon touch X1 with i7 processor and WiDi enabled (Intel HD4000 card, 8GB RAM) to two types of TV with support for Miracast Wifi strandard and Wireless share without significant success. My laptop is installed with Windows 8.1 Enterprise edition with latest Lenovo drivers (Updated to February 2014). The two TV I've tried are: Philips 32PFL4218H and LG 47LM671Y.
The failing conditions are as follows:
I can connect with WPS PIN code, and for some time, around 10-20 seconds the connection shown as established on the TV, then it is disconnected. On the Devices slide from the right on my laptop, I don't see the TV (External screen) to display or slide my screen to. I've enabled the non certified PlayTo registry, but without success. I think the wireless ability of Windows 8.1 with internal intel WiDi support is totally broken and doesn't work. I would appreciate if you could fix this. As the WiDi is quite nice feature to see my laptop screen on my smart tv for watching movies or just surfing the internet without moving around with my HDMI cable.
Additional things I've tried, without success:
Disabled the firewall on Windows - NO SUCCESS
Disabled my antivirus - NO SUCCESS
Disabled the firewall and SPI protection on my wireless router - NO SUCCESS
Tried to play with QoS settings on Router - NO SUCCESS
Tried to play with WiDi originally released software by Intel, but it doesn't work on Windows 8.x as it is internally supported (or apparently not ).
Daniel, please try the following: Make sure the wireless software extensions included with the Intel® Proset Wireless Software package are installed. You may click on Change after selecting Intel® Proset in Programs and Features and then click Change again so you can check mark the remaining options.
If these options do not appear then you may need to completely uninstall Intel® Proset and reinstall the full package version in custom mode for you to be able to choose the remaining components, such as Intel® My WiFi Technology.
Furthermore, can you provide the wireless band and channel being used?
I essentially have the same issue as everyone above. The pre=installed versin of Widi was working just fine until it prompted me to upgrade. I have a Lenovo thinkpad helix; Recently upgraded from windows 8 pro to windows 8.1 pro; i7; 8 gb ram. Fully loaded! My computer is the 55LG6900 smart TiVo with mirocast. I'm not very computer savvy, so I'm afraid to uninstall and install drivers. Is it possible I can do a screen share with a tech? What do you advise? This is very discouraging.
