Just came back from a great MVP conference at Microsoft Redmond. Everything at this conference so I cant share any details. Instead I will share something completely different and not reated to Project Online.
I took the time to buy the great new piece of hardware called “Microsoft Wireless Display Adaptor”, which allows all devices with Windows 8 and 8.1. to project their screen without any cables. Perfect and what every man should wish for this Christmas!
Installing the little device was very simple – just plugged it into my projector. Getting my Surface (Windows 8.1) to project was much harder.
You are told to just click on you “devices” button, hit “project” and then “add wireless adaptor”. Problem is that button is just not there.
The solution is simple but took me a lot of time to figure out, as the product is brand new and don’t have its own blog. That is why I will share the answer here. It turned out it was all related to my Surface Pro 3 having a Cisco VPN client installed.
FIX: Navigate to your WIFI network setup and remove “Deterministic Network Enhancer”. Go back to your devices and projector page – now you will find the “add wireless adaptor”. Easy and I hope I just saved you some hours of troubleshooting.
