Hi. I'm trying to get the c7017T wireless monitor to work under windows 7 with the following hardware configuration:
WR517b Dell wireless receiver
Intel i7-7600 CPU
Intel HR Graphics 530
Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260
So I downloaded and installed the following software:
Intel Pro WiDi (now discontinued but required under windows 7)
Dell Wireless Monitor
The Dell Wireless Monitor detects the monitor, asks for the password,
then "initializing connection..."
but then ultimately fails with "Connection failed."
Monitor model : C7017Tf
Monitor Service Tag: <Service tag removed>
Monitor SVC: <Express service code removed>
Wireless Receiver Model: WR517b
Developer, Nagios Enterprises
First, read through this to be sure you have not missed a step. There is a section for Windows 7 =
How to use and troubleshoot the Dell WR517 Wireless Receiver?
Here is the Dell WR517 Wireless Receiver User's Guide. Read through it.
I also see a C7017T firmware update here.

What I'm finding with ours is that it's hit or miss on Windows 7 with the wireless receiver. We get the same message but only on certain laptops; haven't been able to find a commonality. Furthermore, we discovered that mutli-touch on the C7017T does not work with the wireless receiver no matter what the operating system is; only single touch works which is INCREDIBLY disappointing. If Dell could provide an update to make multi-touch work with the wireless receiver and for the wireless receiver to just work consistently in general with Windows 7 that would be a miracle.
