    Hello guys, i just got an asus k53E. It has the following specs:

    Intel Core i3 2310m
    4gb ddr3 Ram
    intel hd3000
    atheros bluetooth
    atheros wireless n
    windows 7 home premium 64 bit

    i've also bought 3 widi adapters for it.` 2 netgear ptv1000 and 1 belkin screen cast. however i just notice that every specs are widi supported except for my intel wireless card. I have targeted a few on ebay:

    NEW Genunie Intel Centrino Advanced-N WiMAX 6250 wifi 622ANXHMW for BenQ toshiba | eBay


    from the link below, i see there a quite a few which i can purchase.
    Intel Wireless Display not compatible - help anyone?

    So i buy this card and i should normally have intel wireless display? This is unknown territory for me. Any help would be greatly appeciated. Thanks in advance.

    so it doesn't stream? What was your hardware config most specifically wifi card.

    Edit1:Just followed your link and currently reading it.

    Edit2: So do you think it should work? Which one do i buy from intel's official webite? I mean the list of supported wifi cards.

    After a bit of going through Google search results, I couldn't find anything too specific about requirements for the wireless cards.


    For 1080p video support, I only found the following snippet:
    and the following for Intel wireless cards:
    I suppose it would be best to get one of the wireless cards that comes with the 2nd generation Sandy Bridge Intel CPUs which is probably the cards in the bottom half of the list.

    Thanks. I was looking at the intel wireless n 1030. A reliable one from a reputable seller from the US is $29.99 on ebay. I think i will go for it. One thing is bothering me though. What is the difference between single band and dual band cards? Does this mean the stream speed will reduce when browsing on the net and streaming movies to my tv using widi? The reason i was looking at the wireless n 1030 is its bluetooth support.

    Also do you notice a difference between these 2 listings? They seem to be the same to me.

    1st one:

    Intel 1030 Wireless-N & Bluetooth PCIe Half Mini Card | eBay

    2nd one:

    New Intel 1030 Wireless N 300Mbps WiFi & Bluetooth BT Mini PCI-E Combo Card | eBay
