I bought Anycast M2 Plus RK2928 for 2nd external monitor for my Dell Inspiron 17R. I have newest graphic drivers installed (manual way, Windows 7 blocks original Intel's drivers, so I had to update the driver thorough Device Manager).

I have installed newest Intel(R) WiDi Update Tool and Intel(R) WiDi Remote Setup.

When I switch the dongle to Miracast mode and run scan from Intel WiDi Windows 7 application I get Anycast-8ABF33 in the list of "wireless displays" with status "available".

After clicking "connect" I have to wait for a while until Anycast changes its message from "Waiting for connection" to "Connection in process", then nothing else happens, and Intel WiDi application shows an error: "There are no wireless displays detected".

After Anycast dongle turn-off->turn-on cycle the problem persists.

Is there any other software for Windows 7 to use Miracast protocol to connect to external display?

My laptop has compatible processor (i7 3610QM), chipset (HM77) and WiFi (Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230) - AFAIK all these components support WiDi.

  • Try it again with your Windows Firewall disabled, and then come back and let us know the results. Aug 24, 2015 at 17:21
  • I don't use windows firewall (it is disabled). Now I am scanning Anycast with Nmap to know its ports, maybe there's ssh entrance left...

  • I have Anycast, and onscreen it tells me the IP address is - but that doesn't come up when I simply tell my tablet to "Cast Screen" and pick the device by name. My windows 8.1 machine already has a second monitor so does not do anything when I tell it to connect to a wireless monitor. Win7 seems to not have any way to do it. I was able to use Win8.1 to connect to .149.1 in Chrome and tell it to connect to my router, though I can't tell that it does anything special. It recommends the Anycast Connect app, but I don't see that in the Google play store - must be for iOS.
