Windows 7: need help connecting to a miracast dongle

need help connecting to a miracast dongle

i have a lenovo thinkpad win 7 64 bit 8 gb mem and just got the latest drivers form lenovo. anyway i got a new miracast dongle for my tv and i plugged it into the tv. went to that hdmi port and the tv shows that dongle info. i see the dongle on my laptop in the wifi section. i think i followed the setup instructions but i just can't get my laptop to show on the tv. i have spent all day searching the web for answers but i just don't see anything relevant to my problem. they all lead back to win 8 or above. so is that anyway to get this laptop to cast to the dongle?

when i connect to the dongle then i have to open a tab and log onto the ip address, then a page show and want to connect, then it says it is connected to the router and i have to log back into the router and then nothing. i'm hoping there is a program that will just do this like googles chromecast works. any help will be nice. thanks bp.
