Does the Dell 1540 Wireless Card Support WiDi Miracast?

  • Does the dell 1540 wireless card support miracast? No
  • Does the dell 1540 wireless laptop card support intel WiDi (wireless display)? No 
  • Does a Dell latitude e6400, e6410, e6420 or e6430 with a Dell 1540 Wireless card support miracast or wireless display? No 

 In short, No the Dell 1540 Wireless Card doesn't support miracast or widi, no matter what drivers and software you try to add to it. But, there are some really cheap options to get miracast working on your old laptop:

Instead, buy the very inexpensive Intel Wireless AC 7260 that supports dual band, 2.4ghz, 5ghz, bluetooth and wireless AC all for under $30.   Or, get the Centrino 6205 or 6235, often found under $16.

It takes less than five minutes to replace it in your laptop, all you need is a small screwdriver.

Get the Intel AC 7260 wifi card with widi on Amazon.  With it, you'll be able to simulcast your laptop audio and video with a couple of quick clicks in Both Windows 8 and Windows 10.

I have multiple machines with them. The 1540s do not support it, but the ones I linked to do.

I installed intel AC 7260 wireless card and it does not connect with WiDi Miracast, getting a message that my pc or mobile device does not support Miracast

Are you running Windows 8 or 10? They are required for miracast. Also, make sure to update the wireless drivers in device manager
