Wireless Screen Sharing with Windows 7 Computer

Connection Steps

Use the WiFi setup features of your device to connect to the special WiFi network available in your conference room. The network name and password will be shown on the display screen and on printed signage in the room. It may take a few seconds for the network to appear in the list. 

NOTE: If multiple wireless networks for the same room appear, remove those networks and start again (room passwords may have changed):

  1. Click Start->Control Panel.
  2. Select Network and Internet, and then click Network and Sharing Center.
  3. In the task list, please choose Manage wireless networks.
  4. In the Network table, please select the existing profiles and click Remove.
  5. If you see a warning dialog box, click OK.

Cast a Tab from Chrome

  1. Open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click More More and then Cast.
  3. Choose your Chromecast device where you want to watch the content.
    • If you're already using the Chromecast, your content will replace what's on your TV.
  4. When you're done, to the right of the address bar, click Cast Cast and then Stop.

Cast Your Computer Screen

You can display your entire computer screen using Chrome on Mac, Windows, and Chromebooks.

Note: To hear audio on your TV, use a Windows computer.

  1. Open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click More  More and then Cast.
  3. At the top, next to "Cast to," click the Down arrow.
  4. Click Cast desktop.
  5. Choose your Chromecast device where you want to watch the content.

Hints and Troubleshooting

  • If you are having trouble with wireless screen sharing from any device, this option serves as a good fallback. The screen response time may be slightly slower, so it’s recommended that you try to use other options first.
  •  Make sure you are running the latest version of Google Chrome:
    • On your computer, open Chrome.
    • At the top right, click More More.
    • Click Update Google Chrome. If you don't see this button, you're on the latest version.
    • Click Relaunch.
  • As a last resort, use the previous steps in an incognito Chrome browser.

Disconnecting From the Conference Room's WiFi

  • When you are done working in the conference room, change your WiFi network back to MWireless for the best network performance. This may happen automatically when you leave the room. You can also use your device’s features to disable automatically joining the room’s WiFi network.
