I have a HP DV6 laptop and a SAMSUNG UE46F6505 smart TV.

How can I connect/mirror my laptop to the TV wirelessly without an HDMI cable? Both the laptop and TV are connected the wireless router. I want to use the TV as an extra monitor for my laptop. I don't wanna buy other devices to do this. Is it possible?

Laptop configuration:

  • Intel Core i7 3rd gen
  • 6 GB RAM
  • Windows 7
  • NVIDIA GeForce graphics card

As far as I know, without additional hardware this is not possible. I'm sorry.

I agree with this, there are many software packages but to truly mirror the screen wirelessly without quality loss, you will need a video wireless transmitter for your laptop, I believe they come in VGA and HDMI varieties and work similarly to a cable. – Alastor Apr 16 '14 at 18:54
why any adroid phone can do screen mirroring for free and a PC which is 100 times more powerful cant? – Boppity Bop Mar 31 at 19:11

Without any additional hardware you cant stream your screen to the TV.

You need something like that to connect your PC with your TV.

Intel WIDI can do this. You can download the software here.

You mentioned not wanting to buy anything, but I would recommend doing so. Chromecast can perform screen mirroring:

As you recomented, I was looking for some devices. One of them is Google's Chromecast. But AFAIK it cannot mirror the screen of the laptop/pc. I am not sure if I can do it with netgear push2tv or xbox 360 or belkin screencast. do u have any any suggestion? otherwise I have to go and buy a HDMI cable (i don't like using cable). – Imrul.H Sep 30 '13 at 13:04
