The Intel Wireless-AC 3160 cards have been discontinued. Consequently, no support for these cards is included in the latest releases of the Intel Wireless driver packages. The last release of the packages that (still) included support for these cards can be downloaded from here: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/75442/Intel-Dual-Band-Wireless-AC-3160.

 

Support for Miracast is not determined by the capabilities of the Wireless drivers; it is determined by the graphics and chipset capabilities of a particular system. Check out this FAQ for more information: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005492/graphics.html. The Wireless driver packages referenced do include support for Intel's Wireless Display (WiDi) technology. In general, however, Intel WiDi has been superseded by Microsoft's Windows 10 Wireless Display capability.

 

Remember that you should install the Wireless and Bluetooth driver packages as a set,

Hello Scott,

There have two drives, which shall I choice?

I checked my graphics, it should be support Miracast., and my chipset is i7-4720HQ@2.6Ghz, it also should be support Miracast. 

I have runned cmd to check(see my first posts), it shown that "SUPPORTED WIRELESS MONITOR: NO (GRAPHICS DRIVER: YES, WLAN DRIVER: NO). So I think the issue my come from Wlan driver.

All I can tell you is that the Intel FAQ does not mention anything about the capabilities of the Wireless driver being amongst the requisites for Miracast. As I said, you are on the last release of the driver package that supports this (discontinued) wireless adapter. If this adapter/driver combination doesn't yield the support that you need, then you will simply need to get a newer adapter. In my 4th gen system, I am using one of the very latest adapters, the AX200, which supports Wireless-AX and WiFi 6, so you can accomplish what you want for only US$25 as well.

Hope this helps,
