No miracast when docked

2017-12-11, 14:12 PM

Miracast funcionality is lost when docked.  Is it because Wi-Fi gets disabled when docked?  Is there a work around?  Laptop is T470, docking station is ThinkPad Pro Dock P/N SD20F82751 running Windows 10.

I have used miracast when docked, but not recently.  Are there any monitors connected to the dock?

Dear customer,

In case you enable Wireless Auto Disconnection feature at BIOS Setup -> Config -> Network is Enabled and Ethernet cable is attached to your ThinkPad Pro Dock, WiFi radio is turned off when docked.

Do you have either ethernet connected to your laptop or dock?  IF you do and you have wireless autodisconnect turned on in bios it will automatically turn off wifi when it detects ethernet.  does this apply to your situation?  IF it does you need to disable wireless autodisconnect in BIOS.
