Dell miracast windows 10. Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter issues with Dell 5580 and 7280
The instructions below can be followed to connect to a wireless display using Miracast after the Windows 10 update.
Yhteenveto: Information about Miracast replacing Wi-Di. Confirm if device being connected to is Wi-Di or Miracast based. This will be indicated in the instruction manual or sometimes on the device itself. If the device is Wi-Di, inform the customer that Windows 10 no longer supports Wi-Di, and a Miracast based device will be needed. If device is Miracast, continue to step 2. Select “Connect to a wireless display” from the Display options Figure 1, Englsh only. Assuming I can set the Cc to talk directly to the router, how does the laptop then send docs to the screen?
Via router? Oh dear. I just realised the ethernet cable is connected to the rear of the Virgin cable box NOT the tv so maybe I still have a problem What is irking me most is the picture quality of the desktop screen and browser page plus any docs loaded from hd files.
Surely the laptop is not sending those down to the router first to be relayed back to the tv? After all the whole idea was to obviate cable links. In my experience, when you use any device–be it smartphone, tablet, or PC–to send a video stream from the device directly to the Chromecast, the video quality is pretty fuzzy.
In other words, it’s just like jphuhan said: when the Chromecast can connect directly to a stream from a video provider, those streams look great because the feed is pre compressed for stream ing, but when you stream a feed of what’s on your laptop’s screen or phone or tablet , your laptop has to compress the stream and send it to the Chromecast, and that stream is lower quality than a pre compressed stream from a provider.
The only time you get direct-connection quality is when you do a PowerPoint one slide at a time. In conclusion, Chromecasts are good for stream ing video from a video provider , but are not good for stream ing what’s on your laptop screen , and for sharing video-type content from a laptop to a big screen, nothing is a good as a direct connection.
I have no experience with the Chromecast, so I will preface this by saying that this is speculation on my part. First, is your laptop physically close to the TV? If not, see what happens when it is, because if the Chromecast works by using a Wi-Fi Direct connection or some equivalent that has the laptop talking directly to the TV rather than going through your router, then the distance between those devices will be important; it won’t be enough for each device to simply have a solid connection to a router.
On the other hand, if the Chromecast works by having your PC send its display data to the Chromecast over the regular network, i. In the “watching movies on your laptop” scenario, there’s only one data stream occupying the Wi-Fi airwaves, namely the movie coming in from the Internet and being sent over Wi-Fi to your laptop.
In the Chromecast scenario, there are two data streams that have to occupy the Wi-Fi airwaves simultaneously: the one that sends display data from your PC to the router, and the one that relays that from the router back to the TV. It’s possible that the movies simply use better compression than Chromecast. Movies benefit from being “pre-rendered”, so they can be compressed beforehand. If you’re using Chromecast to send live display data to a TV, then the compression has to be fast enough to be real-time, which usually limits the efficiency of the compression.
All that said, one of the specific perks of Chromecast is that when you’re using certain apps like YouTube or Netflix, the “cast” option specifically AVOIDS the need to send the video data from your laptop to the Chromecast. The benefit is that you retain the ability to easily control playback from your PC, without the battery life drain and network bandwidth requirements of having your PC constantly sending a video signal to your TV.
However, not all applications support this mode, so if you’re just using regular Chromecast mirroring, then this wouldn’t apply. As to whether upgrading your Wi-Fi card could still be beneficial, without knowing more about how Chromecast works, I’m afraid I can’t answer that. I can’t imagine it would HURT if you want to investigate it and possibly just return the Wi-Fi card if nothing improves, but that’s all I can offer.
Additionally, if Chromecast data is in fact relayed through your router and not sent directly to the TV, that then raises the concern over how good your router’s Wi-Fi performance is, especially given that it is apparently one floor below. As a frame of reference, where I live our cable provider offers speeds up to Mbps, but the Wi-Fi routers they offer, despite supporting both A high-end As a result, I’ve astonished a few of my neighbors when I convinced them to replace their inferior ISP-provided router with another model and they’ve seen their usable speeds skyrocket.
I would have thought that it would be in the ISP’s interest to provide better routers to avoid the calls from customers saying, “I pay for Mbps Internet and I only ever get 60”, but maybe they’re content to just say, “We can’t guarantee those speeds over Wi-Fi” and move on, having saved a few bucks on hardware. That is going back. Connects up just the same, costs 3x the price so should work beautifully.
The picture quality can best be described as like an old CRT tv, slightly furry focus and low res. Tv is an LG that shows HD channels and films really well for a 5yr old unit. Lappy is the Latt running windows 10 at 64bit. Again I have no criticism of play-back quality. Before also I send this thing back, is there something I may have missed? My bro thinks the res should be fine. He is in IT but not much help beyond that.
I mean, connecting it all up is simplicity itself, I even plugged the usb into supplied adaptor to mains outlet not the tv’s usb slot with no difference. We discussed the poss weakness of the wifi card in another post, could this still be the crux of the problem? I would not have thought so as I am watching films quite happily on the via wifi link to my router sited one floor below which itself is a very recent model from Virign. With the tv HDMI linked, I am getting an equally good pic from router on screen as on simultaneously.
It makes perfect sense now to at least start with the Chromecast and see what happens with the current wifi card. I currently have no discernible problems with speed or range at home, I think due to router siting which is central to house and near ground floor ceiling so we are never much more than 1 room away from it.
What I meant to buy was a Chromecast as my brother recommended. Numpty here clicked before reading the ad properly so it seems I’ve bought a cheap knock-off version. My LG flat tv is around 5yrs old now. It is odd that the first time I hooked this thing up, it appeared in the ‘other devices’ section with my HTC phone. It was only when having bother connecting, I tried removing and reloading it.
From then it disappeared permanently. By directions I meant that I had plugged it all in as per manual and got their opening blue screen up and was able to switch from apple to android OS. So I take it that I ought to send back this offending item and get the Chromecast version? Do we know if that will work with my current wifi card? I am happy to replace it with the card you mention as it seems an easy swap, but what are the added benefits aside from the above? Well at least you’ve figured out where the confusion was!
I don’t know whether your current card will work with Chromecast, but since its requirements don’t seem to mention specific Wi-Fi chipsets or capabilities like Wi-Fi Direct, there’s a good chance it will. But since you asked what an upgraded WiFi card would offer, your current Dell Wireless only supports I also can’t find any clear information as to whether that WiFi card supports 5 GHz networks.
By comparison, the Intel card I mentioned supports the newer and much faster The net result is that if your router also supports As a frame of reference, I have a Mbps Internet connection. When I had an Now that I’ve upgraded to an
