I have bought a wireless display adapter which I'm going to hook up to my TV (waiting to arrive) but it appears that my laptop doesn't have the option to "add a wireless display".
OS: Windows 8.1 64 bit
Graphics: HD 4600
Network: Intel Centrino 135 N
I used the Intel utility for scanning for latest drivers to update the wireless network card's drivers to the latest (18.12.1 and selected options: "Wireless Software Extensions" and "Intel PROSet/Wireless Enterprise Software").
However when I go to the charms menu -> Devices -> Project -> I don't get the option to "Add a wireless adapter".
DXDiag tells me:
(Display) Driver Model: WDDM 1.3
Miracast: Not Supported by WiFi driver
Powershell tells me:
NDIS version: 6.3
I don't even know if this Centrino 135 N is capable of using miracast which is what I'm really after. Should I be able to add a wireless display with this network adapter or do I need to get a separate USB WiFi dongle? At this point I don't know if it isn't supported by the device or my drivers aren't set up correctly.
Any help greatly appreciated,

If you plan to upgrade your wireless adapter, we recommend that you contact your computer manufacturer: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/topics/OEMs.html Computer Manufacturer Support Websites as they are the only ones who can provide a list of adapters that are compatible with your system.
We also would like to inform you that Intel does support integration which is when the original wireless adapter is replaces by another one.
