Greetings, Error " your pc doesn't support miracast so it can't project wirelessly" and I am not connected to Wi-Fi no internet even if I add the cable to connect.

What MS says to correct the situation does not help any help.

I have to log out and log back in & i am connected.

Sorry we need a lot more info on what your trying to do. We need the model number of your computer. Did this computer come with windows 10 or was it an upgrade?

Mireacast requires hardware that supports it. If your computer has the necessary hardware I would go download drivers from the manufacture instead of the ones from windows.

1. I am just trying to surf the internet & loose connection although I am on LAN (cat cable).

2. The computer came with windows OS 7.1 home was upgraded to windows 10 home version 1511 (the free upgrade by MS).

3. OS build 10586.71.

4.Product ID 00326 10000 0000 AA354

5. Intel (R) Core (TM) i5 2403M CPU @ 240GHz

6. Installed RAM 8 GB

7. System type 64-bit operating system, x64 - based processor.

8.Pen and Touch No pen or touch input is available for this display.

This is all the information I could get from system app & going to "about"

I have no other hardware installed except for a flash drive.

Cheers!

Ok then the error about mirecast doesn't make sense. Mirecast is for casting your screen wirelessly to a display.

Was your update to windows 10 recent? Has the computer had a chance to download drivers from MS?

What model of computer for example Dell Inspiron 1050 etc?

I would make sure you had the latest wired ethernet drivers, make sure your power settings are not shutting off your ethernet card, and swap cables if you have a spare.

The particular wifi card in your computer determines whether or not miracast / widi is supported.

TY I do not even know what miracast is.

B4 I upgraded to Windows 10 I powered up the computer & I was connected to the internet as soon as the machine powered up.

Now if I wait 7 to 10 minutes after I power up I am connected to the internet like a charm.

But if I try to do it right away without waiting 7 to 10 minutes I get the error.and I have to hibernate power up again wait & wait.

This is a Lenovo Z570 laptop came with windows7 home.

Maybe you should uninstall Miracast, you don't use it anyway.

The Miracast error message might be a symptom of some other problem too.
