z480 with Netgear PTV3000 (Push2TV Wireless Display HDMI Adapter)

Hi,

 

Thanks in advance for any help that's out there.

 

I have an Ideapad Z480.  I thought I could use it with the Netgear PTV3000.  After a few attempts to get my laptop set up, and some mixed messages from the Netgear site, I'm hoping someone can tell me whether it's possible for my Z480 to hook up to the PTV3000.  I've pasted my laptop's specs below.  Again, would really appreciate any assistance.  If I need to supply more specs, please let me know.

 

Thanks.

Welcome to the forum! Smiley Very Happy

 

You haven't told us what kind of wireless card you are using, To do WiDi you must run an Intel WiFi card, period. Without the Intel WiFi card, you can't do WiDi.

 

Let us know, what card you have in your z480.

 

Cheers.

Thanks for the reply.  Appreciate it.  If I've found what I'm looking for it's an Atheros AR9285.  I guess I'm out of luck.  Thanks again for your help.

I'm sorry to bring you the bad news, but at least you figured out, what your problem was. Smiley Sad
