So I installed them.
Now, when I try to open the program it says "Intel My WiFi Technology not enabled. Restart the computer and try again."
Needless to say, no amount of restarting fixes the problem. Nor did uninstalling the program and then reinstalling it.
[FYI: Using the Sony VPCS111FM/S]

If the wireless driver update was not successful due to the Intel(R) Wireless Display software's being active (see note above), then the adapter may display "Unable to get IP address" and/or the Intel(R) Wireless Display software may display "Application has an issue" and exit. Solution: Shut down the Intel(R) Wireless Display software. Uninstall the wireless driver. Reinstall a clean copy of the wireless driver.

Now everytime I try to use it I receive the same message "Intel My WiFi Techonolgy not enabled". I've removed and reinstalled all software/drivers several times, being very careful to follow all instructions (i.e., turning WiFi Technology off before reinstalling). Nothing changes. I've checked everything in Device Manager which reports everything is working fine.
Also, when I right click on My Wifi Technology icon the options to enable or disenable it are greyed out and inoperable. I tried everything I can think of - turning off firewall, turning off/on the wifi radio switch, checked all internet settings, rebooted after every system change to ensure a "clean" attempt. Nothing is working. Also see many similar complaints on Intel's website, as well as Toshiba's website about this identical problem.
Any suggestions? I called Geek Squad and they claim not to be aware of the problem, and had no suggestions.

My wifi works fine, just not my widi. Wifi connects to wireless modem and bluetooth. When I right click on My WiFi Technology, the enable and disable options are greyed out. And when I try to open/install Intel Wireless Display, I get a message that My Wifi Technology is disabled. Nonetheless, I did turn off the switch, reboot and turn it back on. No change.

You can also try turning it off and on again, or turn it off, reboot, then turn it back on. (I've ran across this before a couple of times, one of which was the laptop thinking the wifi switch wasn't enabled when it was. The other was having to uninstall and reinstall the drivers.)

I'm trying to find some screenshots of it but cant find any on the web. I've ran into this problem before on one of my friends computer that i had to get to the the Intel my wifi tech window and enable-disable it.
It should be left disabled before closing the application then open Intel wireless display and it supposed to enable the Intel my wifi tech automatically..
