Notice Intel no longer provides email, chat, or phone support for this product. Visit the product discontinuation notice for Intel® WiDi.
 

Intel® WiDi is reliant on the processor, graphics, operating system, and wireless networking components of the system.

For the Windows® 10 operating system, the Intel WiDi application only supports systems with a 4th Generation (or newer) processor.

Systems with 3rd Generation processors may be able to access the Intel WiDi features using the built-in Miracast capabilities of the operating system.

Systems with 2nd Generation (or older) processors cannot support Intel WiDi under the Windows 10 operating system.

If you have a compatible system, but are having problems using Intel WiDi or Miracast under Windows 10, check the following:

- Check the firmware on the Wireless Display/Miracast receiver.

Most receivers (including those built into TV's and displays) need updated firmware that specifically includes support for Windows 10

Note: Some older Intel Wireless adapters are not supported under Windows 10.  These adapters may have worked under earlier Windows versions but will not work under Windows 10:

Intel Centrino® Wireless-N 1000,1030

Intel Centrino® Advanced-N 6200, 6230

2nd Generation processor support:

Intel WiDi technology requires a set of compatible hardware, drivers, and software to work properly. This includes, but is not limited to, wireless and graphics drivers for specific platforms for each supported operating system. Many of the features in Windows 10 will not function correctly on older platforms due to driver limitations. As result, systems with 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ processors will not support Intel WiDi (or Miracast) under Windows 10.
