how to connect a pc to a hdtv wirelessly. The tv is to be used like a monitor. I want to display a PowerPoint file. Currently there is a lan already setup in the workplace. I have looked at some pc to tv devices but am not sure if they would work. My company's TIS department wants to put a wireless card in the workstation pc but is not sure how to connect the tv as a monitor?
I got a Smart TV (A Sony KDL-60EX645) and once trying the built-in wireless, well, to put it simply, it sucked. Badly. Although the TV IS a few rooms over from the wireless hub, my 4 year old laptop's built-in wireless gets great signal and I can stream video through it, but this TV buffers every 1 minute or so. I've tried plugging in a wireless USB adapter into the one of the USB ports on the TV, but nothing happens and the TV decides to connect from the built-in wireless adapter anyways. I think the TV might only take media through the USB ports. The TV does have a LAN port on the back of the TV, but I don't want to run another cord through my wall.
i am connecting my laptop pc to my hdtv via a wireless gizmo. the gizmo has a dongle transmitter connected to the pc via the hdmi port and the usb port for power, on the receiver hdtv end the receiver box connects to the hdtv through the hdtv hdmi port and to the a/c power on the wall, all this is to replace a hdmi to hdmi cable connection. i hope i,m clear so far. now i want to clone my pc screen to my hdtv screen i.e. i want to see the exact same image or video on both my pc screen and on my hdtv screen and here lies my problem, as i stated in my original post, i am unable to do so using the fn/f8 keys or the microsoft key/p options i have on my pc keyboard. using these keys i can see a video on either the pc laptop screen or on the hdtv screen but not on both at the same time which is what cloning or duplicating means? the internet posts related to this issue recommend using my nvidia control panel to achieve cloning, i have also tried that approach with no sucess because when i go there, i do not have choice for cloning, it seems it doesnt recognize or detect a second monitor?
I have a Sony Bravia KDL46EX640 which comes with a wireless USB adapter. When I first bought this, I set up wireless network and it went fine. I was able to use the applications for video streaming.
I was trying it again now and it doesn't work. It seems like I can't even connect to my wireless network. I tried to set it up again but it can't find my wireless network. I have tried resetting the TV too (UP arrow + Power button on TV) and still doesn't work. Contacted Sony support but they didn't assist. I have a laptop and ipad connected to the router in the same room so signal is not a problem.
Basically the problem is that the HD media steamed through the E4200 router has a significant lag on the TV. So details..I have the Linksys E4200 wifi router and want to stream the HD video from my computer to TV.The connection schema is pretty straightforward:Computer with 10/100 mbit network adapter-----(network cable)-->E4200----(WIFI)----->TV with 802.11n WIFI adapter.Also 10(ten) mbit Internet connection cable is plugged into WIFI router. The questions are:
1) Can the 10 mbit internet connection affect the speed of the media content being streamed through the E4200 router?
2) Does it make sense to buy the WIFI 802.11 n adapter and use it instead of the network adapter / cable in the connection schema mentioned above?
I recently performed a system restore back to factory settings and downloaded updates to drivers for my service tag. I have a laptop - Inspiron 14R - and I'm having trouble getting my wireless key on the keyboard to work. How can I get it to toggle again. It seems now with the updated driver I have to manually connect and disconnect from wireless internet access.
I've hot connection issues with my wireless Mac keyboard for a while. I've brought the computer in to Apple to see if the problem lied there. They replaced the Bluetooth adapter, and I got a new keyboard, but I still have the same problem. I've moved the router as far from the computer as possible (but it's not that far). Since the E3000 is dual band, I'm wondering if the 2.4 GHz channel is interfering? My friend has a Bluetooth keyboard and a wireless router on his system, and he never has connection issues.
I am having an odd problem with my laptop not getting good wireless internet signal when connected to HDMI port on my HDTV. When i flip the laptop screen up the signal goes back to normal . I dont get it... , someone mentioned i should change the power settings to performance, that seemed to not have any affect. my desktop also has a poor wireless signal when connected to the HDMI port on my HDTV.
I can burn a video file to USB stick and then insert that stick in my new HDTV's usb port, and the television recognises and plays the file. So it seems reasonable that a wireless (perfect) or wired (ok too) connection could be made to stream the content. No?I keep looking at the USB wifi sticks that allow filesharing between laptops and wonder why I couldn't just use a pair of them to link the two devices. But I can find no information out there at all on this.My problem is that movies burned to dvd or usbstick fail to play about half the time via the television usb port or via the blu ray player. "Error, no video file detected". And subtitles are very very dicey. Samsung's firmware (latest updates installed) just doesn't seem to handle files nearly as well as most software based players. VLC player on the laptop (and most players for that matter) play movies without trouble. Included subtitle files always sync up just fine via VLC without any prompting. So I'm looking for a link for watching movies via vlcplayer on my laptop and streaming them to my HDTV or Blu Ray player.

I bought a MacBook Air thinking I would be able to surf the net wirelessly. Can't do it. It works great with HDMI cable, but I don't want a cable trailing across the room. Wish I had bought a Dell!!! So, can I dedicate my old Dell Inspiron 2200 for this function? I can upgrade the 4 MB RAM to 1 GB if that would work. The Dell uses Internet Explorer, Windows XP and a Netgear WNA3100 Wireless-N 300 USB Adapter. I have upgraded the video and BIOS on the Dell, and the drivers on the Netgear Adapter. I have a 2Wire modem/router from AT&T with 3.00 mps. My new 32" LG HDTV is 1080p with 60Hz, but it is NOT a smart HDTV. I know I won't get 1080p with the old Dell, but what could I expect to get? Roku will not give me surfing capability in a web browser.
i need to build a server with win7 but I have no space to for the monitor and keyboard. I would like to control the win7 remotely like NAS. If yes, what hardware and software do I need? I know the computer do not boot as keyboard is not connected.
I have a DIR-655 that's wired via 40' of Cat5 Ethernet cable to a bus near my Sony HDTV. I get great reception and speed and all the available HD channels via my Time Warner Cable subscription.
My problem is that since subscribing to NetFlix (streaming only) when I stream a NetFlix movie I get "reloading/pauses" every few minutes. NetFlix says it requires 1.5 Mbps but Internet speed tests show I'm consistently getting between 5 and 10 Mbps.
I also have a Sony 3D DVD Player that is NetFlix enabled and when the pausing gets too bad I switch to it and sometimes it works, at other times it pauses just as frequently as the TV.
I always turn the PC off when watching TV.

My laptop's keyboard just dead and I can't no longer activate it wifi.My laptop is Toshiba and it usually use fn+f8 key to activate, but since my keyboard got broken yesterday,I don't really know how to activate it.
Old Compaq Presario 3000+ getting sluggish, freezing has Compac mouse and keyboard. So brother gave me not as old eMachine. Thought I'd use KVM and play music, etc from old Compaq. KVM hooked up. Compaq keyboard works very poorly with eMachine. Compaq mouse doesn't work at all with eMachine -freezes center of screen. Switch to wireless mouse, works fine with eMachine, but then have ot use Compaq mouse if I switch to Compaq PCU. Is there a universal keyboard and mouse that would fix this?
I am trying to connect to a PIX 501 firewall via serial connection. My problem is that I cannot issue commands to the firewall. Whenever I try to type something into the terminal, nothing happens. I have the connection settings configured properly (9600 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity, no flow control) and have tried PuTTY and HyperTerminal and have the same results. I get output from the firewall, but my keystrokes do not seem to be going to it.
I have a wireless Linksys E1500 router, and for quite a few months now, my router just stopped working properly. It quit, I unplugged everything and plugged it back in, and it worked, but from that point on, it's been displaying this:
I just bought the e1000 router today and I'm already having trouble. I got it setup the first time and all my computers set up with it and it works fine for internet. Everything is snappy and responsive and I don't have any of the problems I did with my old belkin. However, I am unable to connect to the router using cisco connect or the web interface. I need to forward ports, configure wireless security, etc etc. All I did was disable the guest account through cisco connect, and then when the software just sat there doing nothing with the spinning circle in the middle, I opened task manager and killed the process to get it to go away. Now I can't connect using either cisco connect or the web interface.
Recently I installed connectify because my uni flat only had one wired outlet, and I wanted to use my xbox at the same time. It worked perfectly, but when I returned home I found my laptop could no longer connect to the home network, it just says it cannot connect, but all the over devices in the house work. My laptop can still connect to the internet via an ethernet cable but this isnt practical at home. I've uninstalled the connectify program, and tried my best to make sure I got rid of all the stuff it's done, but still my problem persists
