I am running Windows 8 Pro 64 bit on a Lenovo ThinkPad Twist with an Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230.
I have installed the latest available driver v.188.8.131.52 from Intel. I have also downloaded and installed v.15.5.6 of the Intel My WiFI Dashboard (however it shows v.15.5.0 in "about").
My problem is that most, if not all of the options for My WiFi Dashboard are not present. See the following image for what is available. My specific interest is to use WiFi Direct to transfer files to/from a Samsung Galaxy S II. I have already proven that WiFi Direct works on that device.
I'm at a loss as to what to try next. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance,
Thank you for your post.
This wireless card indeed supports this software. The missing buttons may indicate a corrupt installation. Try the following:
Re-install the software, (uninstall then re-install)
Reset the Intel® My WiFi Technology feature (feature in charge of communicationg beweent he adapter and this software):
First uninstall the dashboard again, follow the steps below
Now install the Dashboard again.
Thank you, but unfortunately, (even with cautionary reboots at each step along the way), the exact problem remains.
I next took the following extra steps:
1. Removed "My WiFi Dashboard"
3. REPAIRED "Intel PROSet Wireless Software"
5. Removed "Intel PROSet Wireless Software" & confirmed to remove all settings
7. the Intel software remaining is listed in the following image:
8. I reinstalled "Intel PROSet Wireless Software" (Wireless_15.5.6_e64.exe). I selected "Typical" and the "Intel PROSet/Wireless for Bluetooth + High Speed" was also installed.
10. I reinstalled "My WiFi Dashboard" (Intel_My_WiFi_Dashboard_15.5.6_e64.msi)
And again, the same results. What can I try next? FWIW, some of the apps installed in "Program Files" and others installed in "Program Files (x86)". I am running Windows 8 Pro 64 bit.

I have the same issue with Intel Centrino N-1030, Windows 7 x64 and reinstalling Intel My WiFi Dashboard fixed the problem.
Please Intel fix that bug.
Hello, I have the same problem with a Dell inspiron 7720 intel centrino N2230, Intel Proset software version 184.108.40.206, driver version 220.127.116.11 I already installed and uninstalled several wifi My dashboard but it still does not work a little help from INTEL please, thank you.
Suspecting that conflicting software may be part of the problem, let's see if we can work together to get this fixed. Here are the Intel apps that I have running on my system:
Those of you that have gotten WiFi Direct working using My WiFi Dashboard, what Intel apps do you have on your system?
Thanks in advance,
I have the same problem with a Dell XPS 12 running Windows 8 64bit. I have installed the latest version of the wireless driver (15.6 for x64) and the latest version of the WiFi Dashboard (15.5.5x64). My dashboard has none of the wi-fi direct or hotspot options.
I have tried installing / reinstalling the software to no avail. I've also checked the registry key entry that is mentioned in another thread as possibly blocking the wi-fi direct feature, but it wasn't in my registry.
Any input welcomed.
Did you try Richard Solomon's solution?
Check it here: Re: My WiFi not available during installation
look for answer number 19.
It worked for me, I just uninstalled all intel wifi software, deleted the registry key and reinstalled.

Hi everyone, I've also tried everything and I just can't make my WiFi Dashboard have any options except for 'do not disturb'. I am running Windows 8 64bit on Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A, having PROSet Wireless 15.6.0 64bit and My WiFi Dashboard 15.5.6_e64, though I've also tried with different ones. Please help and thanks in advance.
Win 8 x64, intel centrino N 6235, wireless pro 15.6_64; dashboard 15.5.6_e64
Same issue over here: I tried multiple versions of the wifi dashboard
the Richard Solomon solution doesnt work either because that particular registry key is not even in my registry
I bought an intel wifi card because of the WiDi, so i am pretty ****** off that it doesn't work because of software issues. Plz intel fix this.
