SUMMARY
At the present time, an Actiontec
"ScreenBeam" "Transmitter and
Receiver Kit" is a viable way for
you to wirelessly connect a
"Windows.." computer to a
monitor or a TV.
3
ACTIONTEC "SCREENBEAM KIT"
• An Actiontec "ScreenBeam" kit
consists of a "ScreenBeam
Transmitter" for your Intel or
AMD "Windows.." computer
and a "ScreenBeam Receiver"
for your TV or monitor.
4
ACTIONTEC "SCREENBEAM KIT"
• Advantage of using a "ScreenBeam
Kit" relative to using "Chromecast" or
"EZCast":
The "ScreenBeam Kit" provides you
with a "ScreenBeam Transmitter" for
your "Windows.." computer while
"Chromecast" and "EZCast" rely on an
existing "WiFi" adapter in your
"Windows.." computer and reduce your
computer's network "bandwidth".

ACTIONTEC "SCREENBEAM KIT"
(continued)
• If your computer does not have
"WiDi" capability and you wish use
similar technology to wirelessly
connect to a TV or a monitor, you
can add an Actiontec "ScreenBeam"
transmitter to a USB port at the
computer end AND an Actiontec
"ScreenBeam" receiver at the TV

ACTIONTEC "SCREENBEAM KIT"
(continued)
• If your computer does not have
"WiDi" capability, you can install a
the Actiontec "ScreenBeam USB
Transmitter" for it. If you do so,
you also have to install an
Actiontec "Screenbeam Receiver"
at the TV end.

ACTIONTEC "SCREENBEAM KIT"
(continued)
• If you install an Actiontec
"ScreenBeam Transmitter" for your
computer, you have to install an
Actiontec "ScreenBeam Receiver" at
the TV or monitor end because no
other receiver at the TV or monitor
end will communicate with an
Actiontec "ScreenBeam Transmitter":

ACTIONTEC "SCREENBEAM KIT"
(continued)
• If your Intel or AMD "Windows.."
computer only has one monitor
attached to it, an Actiontec
"ScreenBeam Kit" cannot be
used to connect this single
monitor to your computer.

"WINDOWS 10" ISSUES
• The special instructions for
"Windows 10" at

/win10/ did not work for us.

automatically detect and install
drivers for any "ScreenBeam
Transmitter" that you attach to a
69
USB port.
"WINDOWS 10" ISSUES
