    No WiDi after Windows 10 upgrade

    I have a Dell XPS L502X laptop purchased 2012
    I have just upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7
    I received a notification after the upgrade to the effect that WiDi will not operate with Windows 10 and has been removed.

    Is there any way I can get WiDi working again ? I use a NetGear Push2TV device on the TV

    Help would be much appreciated. I hope I don't have to roll back to Win7.

    TIA
    Peter

    It seems that it should work unless later updates have been the cause to kick it out, but update the drivers as the article suggests.

    http://www.dell.com/support/article/...9/SLN298101/en

    However, clicking on the Intel WIDI hyperlink in the article gets this - http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/...ed-notice.html

    So unless other members have experienced the same and found a fix, I would suggest you contact Dell for advice.

    WIDI wasn't supported on my W10 upgrade on my HP ProBook either but I didn't figure I needed it anyway NOW I see there is a new D/L for it that supports W10.
    https://downloadcenter.intel.com/dow...e-for-Windows-

    This file installs either Intel® Wireless Display (Intel® WiDi) or Intel® Pro Wireless Display (Intel® Pro WiDi) software for Windows 7*, Windows 8.1*, and Windows® 10 (32-bit and 64-bit versions), depending on the capabilities of your system.

    See the Readme for what is new, bug fixes, known issues, installation instructions, and supported hardware.
    Hope this helps

    Intel has made the decision to discontinue marketing and development of Intel® WiDi and Intel® Pro WiDi applications and related receiver certification program effective immediately. Now that the Miracast* standard is natively supported in the Microsoft Windows* 8.1 and 10 operating system for wireless display capabilities with strong user experience, Intel is redirecting its resources and focus to future areas of growth.

    Guess I should have read the link before googling WIDI.

    So, does this mean that I should be able to find a way to connect wirelessly my laptop to the Netgear Push2TV equipment without Intel WiDi? In other words Windows 10 has the inbuild soft ware to facilitate this connection. If so, how do I do this?
    New technology options seem to be expanding exponentially and unfortunately I am a bit of a dinosaur !

    Thankyou all for taking the time to give me some advice
    Cheers, Peter
