This article applies to the following ScreenBeam receiver:
- ScreenBeam 1100
- ScreenBeam 960
- ScreenBeam 750
ScreenBeam Miracast operates on Autonomous Group Owner (AGO) mode by default. This approach allows organizations to specify wireless channel(s) for the Wi-Fi Direct peer-to-peer connection.
In this mode, the P2P connection may be prevented by the domain Group Policy. If the Miracast connection attempts fail repeatedly and immediately show the "Couldn't connect" message after entering the PIN, you may need to configure the Microsoft Active Directory Group Policy setting for wireless display.
Under Group Policy Management Editor > Policies > Windows Settings > Wireless Network (IEEE 802.11) Policies, verify the following settings.
- Windows 10/8.1 client systems
- Uncheck Prevent connections to infrastructure networks
- Check Allow everyone to create all user profiles
- Uncheck Don't allow Wi-Fi Direct groups
- Winodws 7 client systems
- All settings mentioned above
- Uncheck Don't allow hosted networks
Settings highlighted in green are required for all versions of Windows, settings highlighted in blue are only required for Windows 7.
Make sure the new group policy setting is applied to the client systems by opening an administrator command prompt and entering gpupdate /force .
