Specs: Windows 10, Intel Core i7-4790 || 32gig
My Win 10 computer says Miracast doesn't work.

On this page ( https://www.auslogics.com/en/articl... ), Solutions 1 & 2 were not the problem. But I was stopped on Solution 3 because I don't have a wireless network adapter. My wireless ability comes from my modem/router. And, I do not use a VPN.

How do I get Miracast working?

Motherboard MSI B85M-G43
CPU Intel i-7 4790
32Gigs RAM
Primary drive Samsung SSD
Auxiliary drive Western Digital 1TB

"I don't have a wireless network adapter"

If you're asking about a Lenovo Essential G560, it certainly has a wireless adapter....Broadcom 802.11n wireless according to the following: http://www.notebookreview.com/noteb...

Agree with riider. According the manual for that series there is definitely a wifi adapter on-board.

Front edge - on the left there is an on/off swiotch for it too.

Page 6 of the manual (download it here) shows it clearly

and page 21 is a bit more about it.

However.. it seems that model Lenovo is quite elderly these days; arrived with win-7?

Lenovo don't appear to have it listed as having win-10 drivers...?

doesn't appear to have anything for win-10and the G560 series?

Or are we discussing another model computer, not the one listed in your specs...?

OK...

Have you followed the routine here, or something very close to it?

https://www.thewindowsclub.com/set-...

The specs for motherboard do not appear to include wifi; only ethernet...

https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/B85...

And there are comments on the web (even on Amazon too) which mention that lack of wifi and (apparently) bluetooth too.

Do you have a plugin wifi card/adapter; and if so which one?

No, I'm using the onboard Ethernet adapter.

As I said in my original post. I don't have a WiFi adapter.

Ooops - sorry missed that bit in the initial post...

As Miracast seems to work via wifi.... you need to install a suitable wifi card/adapter; one that does have win-10 drivers too?
