My Wifi Direct Help!

I've got a Dell Latitude E4310 running Windows 7 Professional with an Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6250 network card. I downloaded the Intel My WiFi Dashboard software and I keep getting the following message: "This computer is capable of using Intel My Wifi Technology, however a supported version of the software is not installed." I've tried to update to the latest driver - WiFi_Win7_64_18.40.4 but I get the same error message. I tried to "Change" the installation package from Control Panel and the My WiFi Technology option was not checked. I checked it and hit apply then did a restart. Same problem and checking the installation still showed that the My WiFi Technology option was still not checked.

So I completely uninstalled the driver and installed the latest Intel driver version on Dell's website - Network_Driver_3MNPT_WN_15.10.0.10_A06 (which actually is version 16.1.1). But I still get the same error with the My WiFi Dashboard software. I've also uninstalled and reinstalled this software several times. Help! What am I doing wrong??? I need to get WiFi Direct working.

TIA

Hello discipleuno,

Are you looking to enable WiFi Direct to share your display, or for file sharing?

Carlos,

Thanks for your prompt reply. I need this capability to move files from my laptop.

Hello discipleuno,

 

 

In this case you may have better luck with an active third-party software such as http://www.ushareit.com/en/ SHAREit* or http://www.digitalcitizen.life/how-share-files-between-smartphones-windows-pcs-feem FERN*.

 

 

NOTE: Any links provided for third party tools or sites are offered for your convenience and should not be viewed as an endorsement by Intel® of the content, products, or services offered there. We do not offer support for any third party tool mentioned here.

 

 

Or you may contact your http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/topics/OEMs.html computer manufacturer to see if they're able to offer another alternative.

 

 

Best regards,
