    Hello everyone. Its been awhile. Hope all are doing well and happy new year.

    So I have a problem. I am trying to connect my W10 to my LG Smart TV while using miracast. I am unable. I can detect my LG Smart TV via devices and add it. But when I go to notification and click on CONNECT, i get the following message.

    "Your PC or Mobile device does not support miracast, so it can project wirelessly"

    Below are my specs. Also I have pasted some info from DXDiag

    Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (10.0, Build 10586) (10586.th2_release_sec.161024-1825)
    Language: English (Regional Setting: English)
    System Manufacturer: ASUS
    System Model: All Series
    BIOS: BIOS Date: 11/11/15 12:24:48 Ver: 28.01
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHz (8 CPUs), ~4.0GHz
    Memory: 16384MB RAM
    Available OS Memory: 16324MB RAM
    Page File: 5795MB used, 12960MB available
    Windows Dir: C:\Windows
    DirectX Version: 12
    DX Setup Parameters: Not found
    User DPI Setting: Using System DPI
    System DPI Setting: 96 DPI (100 percent)
    DWM DPI Scaling: Disabled
    Miracast: Available, with HDCP
    Microsoft Graphics Hybrid: Not Supported
    DxDiag Version: 10.00.10586.0000 64bit Unicode

    I am currently connected my Desktop to the internet via Ethernet. My LG smart via WIFI, but at one point it was connected via Ethernet (powerline) and miracast worked then with my phone.

    What can i do to make it work?

    Thanks again.

    I tried and tried to do what you are, finally gave up and went with HDMI cable to a 60" 4K HDTV, yes you have the wire but don't have to fool with that wifi mess, In fact I have a splitter to accepts 4K plus regular HD I got at Amazon, HDMI 2.0 Splitter, CSRET 1x2 HDMI Splitter Amplifier Ver 2.0 Certified for 4k x 2K (60Hz) & 3D 1080P Support 1 in 2 out Signal Distributor, from computer to 60" 4K and to a 50" regular HDTV so I pretty much ended up going with HDMI cable after playing with miracast for awhile, to much hassle for me with wifi. :D

    Open a command prompt and enter "netsh wlan show driver" if everything on the bottom line says Yes than it should work. It should show Wireless Display Supported: Yes (Graphics Driver: Yes, Wi-Fi Driver: Yes) If so go to Settings / Devices / Conntected Devices and click on Add Device and see if your Miracast device in this case LG Smart TV shows up in the list.

    reboot modem and routers.. then tv and pc.
    make sure you are set to private network not public and file print share on.. firewalls might be it also.

    @Ruby2hora, Yeah LG Smart Share is mostly for media. I want to mirror my whole desktop.

    @LatinMcG those small steps were already taken multiple times.

    @davistje As stated above, I have already gone to my Devices and and LG Smart TV shows, I can even add it. It just when it click Connect under Notifcations it wont allow me.

    Now I also ran that command and this is what i received:

    "The Wireless AutoConfig Service (wlansvc) is not running."

    @Lobo11 I would love to use HDMI, but the location of the TV makes it difficult

    I just removed connect as my Rig does not support Miracst and I have zero use for it anyway.

    I've seen 50' HDMI cables, along with a good splitter, saves alot on cable box rentals:D

    Trust me, I have though about it, it just second floor, front bedroom over garaga (computer), master room, first floor at the back. It will take a lot to run the cable and some clever hiding.

    @GTK48 What I want to know, if my rig support it, because DXdiag says that it does. But Windows itselfs tells me no.

    I guess I'm just stuck on doing it with wire/cable. See I have two infrared day/night video cameras outdoors (Infrared) see in the dark really well, mine 150 feet, tried wireless with them, picture was not as good. Then a while back tried wifi to TV, I know some swear by it, some have hard to reach places, but still picture was just not as good. Bottom line, I'm using HDMI cable whether you see the cable or not. :tasty:

    Any problems I've ever had with miracast turn out to be the fault of the firewall. Try to bypass it to test. You may have a firewall in your router, try turning that off to test. Make sure your router has PNP and port forwarding enabled. Is the TV able to display any network related apps?

    Just some ideas!
