Bluetooth and Wifi no on/off switch in PC settings

Q: Bluetooth and Wifi no on/off switch in PC settings

Hello I just bought a brand new computer 3 days ago. Haven't been using it that long. It's an HP Envy 810qe or something like that. The first day I played on it 77 windows updates were downloaded.

The computer has built in Bluetooth which I love but I noticed it was always-on and was wondering if there was an on/off switch. I searched Google and seen there is an on/off switch in PC Settings, PC Devices, Bluetooth. Unfortunately I do not have this. Also under PC Settings and Network I do not have an on/off switch for the wifi. I also don't have anything in PC Settings called Wireless. I talked with HP support (since I just bought this computer) their only option was to do a System Restore or Recovery. I talked to Microsoft support and their only option was to pay for a premium membership so they could use their 'advanced tools' to scan my system and find out the problem. (which is my long history of dealing with computers and support their answer would have probably been the same which was System Restore or Recovery, at which who even knows if this is going to fix the problem)

So now I come to this community my first time here (wave) asking for assistance. I temporarily disabled my Bluetooth in Device Manager because I don't know if it's safe to have it constantly on if I'm not using it. I've seen on here there are other people who have had the same problem but I didn't see a definite solution on the couple threads I read. Also just before disabling my Bluetooth I ran HP support assistant and it had a couple updates. Then when I went to restart my computer Windows Update had another update still no option was showing to turn Bluetooth on/off or Wifi on/off. Also come to think of it I haven't ever seen the option to turn Bluetooth on/off the past three days I've owned the computer.

If for some reason I cannot fix this issue is it harmful to keep the Bluetooth always on? I don't want harm the computer if it's constantly sitting there searching for Bluetooth devices if I'm not using them or don't plan on using them.

A: Bluetooth and Wifi no on/off switch in PC settings

Hi summerbear. I can try something that works on my MSI laptop (a great brand BTW), and I think most of todays' laptops.
Usualy there's an allin1 manager to all of the options you mentioned, and it is accessible through the start line in windows (at the bottom). Most of the time you don't see all the icons of programs running, and there's a little upward arrow in far right side of the start line, that if clicked reveals sound, storage, and allin1 managers installed in your system. In my laptop this manager program that includes control over volume, wi-fi, and bluetooth, is called SCM. I'm not sure that HP's has the exact same program but there's supposed to be some type of allin1. If you don't find any try typing "Bluetooth" in windows search (through the start button), and shutting down wi-fi is also possible by clicking the network bars in the far right, thus accessing the list of nearby wi-fi networks, choosing the one you're connected to, and clicking "disconnect".
Hope I helped, goodluck.
Amit.

I was using Windows 7 Home Basic preinstalled with the laptop since 2011. The laptop was working fine. After upgrading to Windows 10 the WiFi and Bluetooth is not working. Tried help from Microsoft remotely. According to them the drivers are not working and there is no updated drivers available for Windows 10 on HP website. The driver installed presently is "Broadcom 4313GN 802.11b/g/n 1x1 Wi-Fi Adapter".Please help and advise whether to stick with Windows 10 or to roll back to Windows 7 as I have an option to purchase a removable device to use WiFi and Bluetooth.I love the lightness of the new operating system. Please help!!!

Hello @Banti2?, Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, both from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I read your post about the Windows 10 upgrade, and wanted to assist you!You can use the Go back to an earlier build option, in your System Settings: HP Notebook PCs - Upgrading to Windows 10Once you are back to your original Operating System, check to see if you are experiencing the same issue. If not, then you may consider holding off on the Windows 10 upgrade for a few weeks, until drivers can be updated. However, if you are able to get the WiFi and Bluetooth to work, using an external device, then you can continue to use Windows 10.  Keep in mind, that the rollback option is only good for the first 28 days, after installing Windows 10. Please let me know if this information was helpful by clicking the thumbs up below.Regards!

I have a wireless router connected to my modem, and ALL PC's connect to that for internet.

I also have a gigabit switch I use to transfer data in between several of the machines. I do it quite often and I don't want it eating up the wifi bandwidth.
I have done it before, but it has been a long time and I cannot remember how I forced internet traffic over the wifi and local traffic through the switch
Is the only way to do it to specifically tell Windows to use the IP address of the LAN connection? I know it will work that way, forcing local traffic directly to that IP, but I seem to remember there being an easier way to do this.

Thanks.

Hi, I have a Gateway NV52L15 notebook and I am having problems with my WiFi access. I have Windows 8. My wireless networks are not showing up. When I troubleshoot the network adapter, I get a messAge that reads that my wireless capability is turned off. When I go to the Gateway Device fast lane, my WiFi is on. But when I look in networks it as shows WiFi off and I am unable to turn it on that way. When I go to wireless devices in pc settings, the toggle button for the wire device is grey, therefore I am unable to switch it on- It used to work.

Also, while in the Gateway Device fast lane, when I press the F3 key the airplane mode goes on...the WiFi goes off...by comes right back on. Please help...

I bought a bluetooth dongle which for some reason isn't working in Windows 7. It shows up in Devices and Printers as "CSR Bluetooth Chip" and when I right click on it and select bluetooth settings, nothing happens. It shows up under Bluetooth Radios in device manager. As a test I tried using it in a Windows 10 VM. When connecting the USB dongle via VirtualBox it was referred to as "Uknnown device 0A12:0001 [134]" and it worked just fine in the VM. Any clue as to what is wrong?

Hi, I have a XPS 13 9343 (i5/QHD) purchased refurbished from 3rd party, recently installed clean W10.
The Dell tool indicates to me that I should be installing:
9343_Network_Driver_WD22T_WN32_7.35.333.0_A03.EXE
Installing I get failure log at the bottom.
Via Device Manager as mentioned the WiFi adapter under Network is not there, scanning for hardware changes does not help.
I have tried manually installing inf files but I don't get any options under "Model" when I try to install it through legacy hardware.
I'm starting to think the Wifi/Bluetooth component is either faulty or entirely missing from the vendor (I have not opened it up and wouldn't know how to diagnose this myself).
I've attached a separate wifi dongle which works as does connecting to Ethernet via a USB adapter.
Any other ideas of what it could be? Thanks.

Hi!

I have a Sony DR-BT50 that work great with my VAIO laptop, either on Kubuntu or Windows 7, but I've noticed that it's a way smoother experience in the open source world.

My problem with Windows is that every time I turn my headphones on while using Skype it switches to HSP and won't go back to A2DP until I delete it from the control panel and reconnect it. OK, I know you would say "just remember to never turn them on while having Skype running" but the problem is that it will also decide to miss behave at random.

Question is: Is there any software around the web to "hack" Windows BT stack and manually switch between protocols?

Lost my On/Off Toggle for Bluetooth

Last year whilst I was on 8.1 before my upgrade to Windows 10, I noticed that the On/Off Toggle had disappeared ? see screenshot (taken when it was on 8.1).

Now I am on Windows 10 the toggle still has not reappeared.

I definitely had the On/Off option, but I think it disappeared after a routine Windows 8.1 update last year, but I cannot be sure.

Some people suggested that I should delete all the Bluetooth software on my computer, then reboot and the software will be reinstalled correctly. I have not done this because of the fear that once deleted the software to gone forever. I dont have copies of this software and it seems logical that if I delete it, then its gone.

I am using Dell Wireless 1705 Bluetooth, Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator, Microsoft Bluetooth LE Enumerator - see Device Manager Screenshot. To turn off I now have to go into Device Manager and disable it.

My Driver is Qualcomm Atheros Communications, ver 10.0.1.1 dated 28-07-2015

I can Disable/Enable the driver, but still no toggle otherwise the Bluetooth works fine.

Any suggestions.

A:I have lost my Bluetooth On/Off Toggle Switch

I have some Dell Inspiron 15 Notebooks and the Bluetooth on them is associated with the Wi-Fi adapter, if it is not on or working neither will be the Bluetooth. Out of 3 Dells I upgraded to Win10 only 1 needed new Bluetooth drivers from Dell. I just put the Service Tag number in at http://support.dell.com and looked at the list, Dell had added a statement that Win10 was supported. But then there's more than one model of the Inspiron 15.

I had to update my bluetooth drivers (Intel) before I could finally get sound to come out of my new UE Mini Boom speakers.

But I still have a problem. If I am watching a Youtube video in a web browser (doesn't seem to matter which) and then switch to a video in VLC or Win Media Player, the sound from the new source doesn't play on the speakers. I have to power the speaker off and then back on and then it will pick up the new audio.

When I had a USB speaker the source-audio switched without any problem. Are there any settings that I can update, or should I just accept that a bluetooth speaker was a terrible idea for Win7?

A:Bluetooth speakers (UE Mini Boom) don't switch to new audio source

Youtube uses the Adobe Flash Player. VLC/WMP or whatever media player does not and thus different audio source. One thing to check, that may or may not make a difference, is if you have Stereo Mix set as the default recording device. This can affect sound playback. Stereo Mix is found in the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound panel, Recording section.

I've got my computer booting with the 3GB switch. I've got 4GB total and I'm wondering if there's any way to use just a little bit more than the 3GB that the switch gives me.

So I'm wondering if, with 4GB RAM total, I have any options other than 3GB for the switch, and if so, how can I tell if they've come into effect after booting?

I was playing a game on my laptop and decided to switch from wifi to ethernet. I plugged in the ethernet and turned off the wifi switch to ensure it switched over, but later when I tried to turn wifi back on, I see the wifi on/off switch is grayed out.

I went to my device manager to check for wifi network adapter driver updates, but everything seemed pretty up to date.

Any recommendations on how to fix this? Or at the least another method of turning the wifi on, like through command prompt or something?

Thanks

A:WIFI on/off switch is grayed out

So to fix this what I did was hit the airplane mode key on my keyboard. The wifi switch in the pic I posted would stop being grayed out for about 5 seconds, and I had to switch it on in that time.

I'll note that flipping the airplane mode switch right above the wifi switch didn't do this, so I don't have a clue how it worked out.

I did some upgrading to my motherboard and when I tried tweaking it, I got an error message. My specs (at least the ones that seem pertinent to this problem):

ASUS Z97-A motherboard
Crucial 8GB RAM
Intel Core i5
EVGA GeForce 970

I have two switches on my motherboard which, supposedly, optimize the CPU and power consumption:

EPU switch (optimizes power consumption)
TPU switch (optimizes CPU usage)

I switch those on and, after 5 or 10 minutes, I get this error message: WHEA_UNCORRECTIBLE_ERROR. The computer then restarts. The only thing I can think that is wrong is that I didn?t set the switches before installing Windows. Because it was done after the installation, the system didn?t have a chance to adjust certain settings to take advantage of the switch settings and can?t make the appropriate changes that easily. At this point, it?s not that big of a deal. The FPS on all my games is plenty smooth, even on ultra settings. Heck, I?m sure the switches will only make a marginal difference while I play (something only a hardcore individual would nitpick at). My question is what do I need to do to make the switches work.

I have a 6 month old Yoga 500 and this is the second time this has happened.  The last time I was resigned to taking it back to the shop and the day I was going to do it I turned it on for one last time and it was working perfectly again! Here are the symptoms  Fan running at full speedKeyboard not responding - touch screen working fine and can log in and use WindowsWiFi showing as off with Red Cross on wifi symbol.  In settings, option to turn it on is greyed out.  Ive carried out a Windows restore to a date last week when everything was working fine I've disabled and enabled the wifi card through device managerI've uninstalled and reinstalled wifi card drivers The last time it happened I also carried out a full factory restore but this didn't work.  As mentioned above, it just started working again.  So I'm not going to go through the hassle of trying that again. Any suggestions before I take it back to the shop?

I have a Lat 5470 where I am trying to turn wifi on/off at will. I found where i can lock/unlock the FN active key by using FN + ESC key but when I press FN+PrtScr to turn wifi on/off, the only thing that turns on/off is Bluetooth.
Yes I have enabled this functionality in the BIOS but no change.
Thank you

When the WiFi button (F12) is pressed the LED show red and a message on-screen briefly says "Flight Mode ON" and the network connection icon in the notification area shows a red X. - this is expected - however When I press F12 the on screen message does breifly display "Flight Mode OFF", but the LED stays orange and WiFi is disbaled. If I click the network icon in the notification area the panel that appears says Flight Mode OFF, WiFi (OFF). I simply cannot re-enable the WiFi with the F12 key. If I go to Computer->Properties->Device Manager, select the Wireless Adapter I can switch the WiFi back on by going to the Advanced tab and selecting Radio->Enable. If I do this the let then goes white and WiFi is OK. So what is going on - why can't I simply toggle the WiFi off and on with the F12 key. Why to I have to resort to the device manager to switch it back on again?

A:New HP Pavilion G6 - F12 switches OFF WiFi but won't switch ...

Solved my own problem - if it help others ....the WiFi Driver update dated 25/09/12 caused the problem in my case.Right click on 'Computer' select 'Advanced' and open Device manager. Locate the WiFi Adapter and choose the 'Roll back driver option' to restore the previous driver - worked for me. You think someone would test drivers better than this !!!

Hi,
I run an Ethernet cable to my modem for my Windows 10 PC. But unfortunately I have a lot of drop outs where the internet just stops (something I am taking up with my provider) and I have a pocket wifi to use as a back up.

My PC can find the wifi and connect but the only way I can get it to connect is by pulling out the blue Ethernet cable from the actual pc. (When I say connect, I mean it is "connected" already but not in use, the small box appears for the ethernet cable rather than the wifi icon)

I would like to know if there is a way to either run the wifi simultaneously with the Ethernet cable plugged in or if there is a way to "turn off" the Ethernet connection from my pc when it goes down, so that I dont have to keep unplugging it.

I am not very technically minded and am worried if I go into advanced network settings etc that I might not be able to get the Ethernet working again once it is plugged in and back up and running.

Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.

A:How can I switch to WIFI from Ethernet instantly??

You can have both plugged in and still work. Each NIC is assigned a metric and the NIC with the lowest metric will be used. If in your are the wired NIC is still seen as available but in fact it's having problems the computer will still try and use it unless you unplug the cable. If your computer supports a feature called LAN/WLAN switching that may work in your case that may work or may suffer from the same problem in which the wired NIC is still detected as connected and it won't switch. If you are only having an issue with the wired connection why not just stay on wireless?

hello almost a year ago i was getting mad at my internet and turned the wifi switch on my laptop off so i cud turn it back on... when i turned it off i had inadvertently broke the switch in the off position and for a few weeks had no internet while i searched frantically to find a solution... eventually i just gave up and bought a usb wifi device to override the switch... recently i have lost this usb and i was wondering if there was a cmd command or something that i cud do to manually turn it back on... i am currently using windows vista on a computer around 3 or 4 yo and once again frantically searching for a solution... pls help with any info possible.
 

A:broke wifi switch in the off position

What make/model is the computer?

If it is a slide switch and you broke off the part that sticks outside the case, you might be able to use a toothpick or other small stiff object to reach through the slot and slide it to the ON position.

Right this is a bit of a tricky one. Not sure if i'm putting it in right forum but don't know where else to put it really. Right well i changed the settings in my Bios so that i switched the system on by typing a password into the keyboard. this was great and i was happy with what i had done. then latern on in the day i was on my other computer and i needed the escape key for something. Now the keyboard i have attached to this computer the escape key doesn't work so i went to my other computer without thinking and borrowed the keyboard from there. whon i when to put it back and then switch on my main computer it just wouldn't power up. I beleive that when i unplugged the keyboard i've somehow stopped the computer from recognising this as the keyboard that it should allow me to switch on the pc if i type the password. so now i cannot boot up this computer and i can't obviously change settings in the bios till i can get it on. Does anybody have any suggestions please. I really need stuff on this computer. Thanks in advance.

Hi all. I'm not sure if this question should go into this forum but here goes. I have a PC I planned to hook up to a TV. The PC would use 802.11g WiFi to access my home network and the Internet. I started looking for a mini keyboard/mouse to use with this and realized that there might be an issue using either Bluetooth or 2.4 GHz band devices (that aren't Bluetooth). The PC would have a WiFi NIC in it and something, either a Bluetooth adapter or other 2.4 GHz device, connected and used at the same time. How do people get around this issue other then utilizing 802.11n?

No. Why should it? Something else is going on, if you Internet speed went down. Most likely your WiFi card, which also does Bluetooth, is needing a little tweaking.

When trying to adjust Bluetooth Settings from the notification area, I accidentally clicked a wrong button and the Bluetooth Settings disappeared from there. Now, I can't seem to get them back and the only way I can get to them now is to go into the Start and do a search for Bluetooth Settings and get them that way - a lot less convenient. I went into the Customize for Notification Area Icons, but I can't find any way to get it back using that. I even tried "Restore default icon behaviors" and still couldn't get it.

hi all..

..iv recently found some cool toys for my system using bluetooth, and my mobile. now my PC will only make any sound through the speakers using 'Intel integrated audio' device. this was always default and never had a problem until i started using 'voice gateway' (a way of sending the voice of both me and the caller through my computer speakers and mic)

when i use voice gateway it changes the default audio device in control panel > sounds from 'Intel integrated' to 'bluetooth audio'. when its set to bluetooth audio my speakers wont work!

the only way to set the device back to the original 'intel integrated' is to disable the bluetooth audio device.


so.. its some sort of weird clash.. how can i get around it?

I have tried multiple avenues to create a sync partnership via bluetooth between my ideapad and htc 620s, to wit:

MS BT Stack
Toshiba BT Stack
BlueSoleil BT Stack

All, to no avail.

I can establish a serial connections (fleeting) when using the Blue Soleil and Toshiba Stacks... but still can not use the activesync service (just serial port... which will not create the correct comm partnerships... and stereo headset).

But, what I find to be truly strange is... when using the default MS Stack (with CSR radio drivers), I can not access the Bluetooth settings via the task tray (right click). Furthermore... putting both devices in discovery mode (my laptop via add device functionality) neither device detects the other.

Hi.

I have a pesky little brother who keeps switching off the WiFi switch on my laptop when I leave home without some downloads on. He does so that he can hog up all the bandwidth for himself.

Is there any way I could disable the WiFi switch so that my WiFi stays on at all times? I have a Lenovo Y560.

Thanks.

A:Disable WiFi hardware switch on laptop

If he can't turn off the WiFi what will stop him from just powering the system down?

There may be a way to catch the key using AutoHotkey. You would have to have a script running that echos the vk key codes as each key is pressed. Once you know the code for the WiFi key you can just intercept it with a one line script.

But he could still just close the program running the script or hold down the power button.

Hi,

I think I know what I want, but I just wanted to check before I splashed the cash and made the wrong choice!

I have a Humax Freesat recorder and a Panasonic Blu-Ray player. Both of which have services that need internet access, but neither are WIFI enabled & are the wrong side of the room to be connected via cabled ethernet.

I believe that what I need is to wireless access point? I'd like one with a built in switch as well, as most seem to only come with only one port. The one I found has four, which would be useful as I could replace the poor wireless Xbox 360 dongle.

The one I was looking at was http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004JV42A0/sr=1-1/qid=1325091993/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me=&qid=1325091993&sr=1-1&seller=. This seems very cheap.

Can anyone tell me if this will do what I want & whether there is anything better without spending a fortune?

Many thanks in advance

My warranty period is over and I wanted to clean out the fans etc... and I have taken apart many laptops in the past but man it was hard to get all the connectors from the keyboard etc hooked up without unplugging another one because of the lack of wiggle room, how the guys at Toshiba put them together i will never know anyway i finally managed to get them all hooked up and the case back together but the wifi radio switch next to the SD slot was not aligned properly and rather than go through the nightmare of hooking it all back up again i forced the switch a little too much well actually a lot too much as i busted the dang thing right off.

so now i can't switch on the wifi which ain't that bad for home 'cause i have a wired modem but when i am out and about i need the wifi capability. someone suggested bridging the two connections i can see inside (a guy at staples) but that if it did work each time i shut it down i would have to bridge it again, well I tried that and I did something wrong as the whole system shut off like a lightening bolt and i thought i fried the motherboard as i couldn't get it to turn on, but i unhooked the battery unplugged and held down the power button for ten seconds then i plugged it back in minus the battery and luckily it worked, there is no way i am going to try that again and if i don't have to (i can't afford it anyway) is there anyway i can bypass the hardwire switch...

...but it's not.

Hi, I'm Antonio. About a month ago, while I was doing work, I tried to access Ubuntu from my jump drive to look at a certain application (don't remember what). Couldn't get the wifi working in Ubuntu (as had happened in the past), so I gave up. When I got back to Windows 8, the wi-fi was not working in Windows, either! It's still not working. Despite the wifi switch being clearly in the "on" position, it doesn't think the wifi is on. Toggling the switch with the Device manager open shows the Bluetooth drivers popping in and out, so the switch is physically working, at any rate. The wifi drivers stay put, and Device Manager thinks they're working fine.

Sony Vaio S series laptop (VPCSB11FX). Windows 8, 64-bit. I've tried:

-Deleting and re-installing drivers.
-Deleting and re-enabling.
-Doing a system refresh.

If I go back into Ubuntu (as I'm doing now), I can fire off an "rfkill unblock all" command, and the wifi works. Hardware swtich and all. How do I get Windows to think my switch is on, and that my hardware is working?

I leave my switch on all the time and have never seen any performance hit. It would be mighty inconvenient to keep it switched off, then switch it on everytime I need to use the internet.

And your system is not constantly looking for a wifi signal. Once you've connected to your home network, it would stay connected to that.

I am building a car PC out of an AMD E350 motherboard (link below...), which has mini PCIe & SO-DIMM slots as opposed to standard expansions & RAM. It is a simple, low power system, ideal for the application. I believe Win8 is the perfect platform for the application as well, since it works nicely with a touchscreen-oriented interface.

I bought a WiFi/bluetooth combo card off of eBay (link also below), but thus far, the WiFi isn't working. The BT works fine, but the wireless does not.

I verified that the driver is installed & working in Device Manager, but Windows does not give me the option to connect to a wireless network. In my Network Connections dialog, it only shows the wired LAN and the BT.

I am willing to accept the fact that the wireless driver is not compatible with Win8, but also wonder if it is a problem with the card?

A:Trouble with WiFi/Bluetooth card

*update*

Actually, I just double checked, and the driver is NOT installed for the Wi-Fi card. I was looking at the driver for the regular LAN controller. I was tricked because it is a MoBo integrated LAN controller, but the driver labels it as a Realtek PCIe.

I did download the driver exe from Realtek and I also tried the one from HP. Neither seems to load the WiFi functionality of this card.

Also, if it helps, the card is a Realtek branded for certain HP laptops.

Hi! I got this laptop 6 months ago and to be honest, I'm quite disappointed with the wifi and bluetooth performance.The first attempts to connect to my home wireless network were unsuccessful. The laptop would detect a very low signal strength and would connect only when placed a few feet away from my AP. Immediately I thought that it was an issue with the antenna, maybe a disconnected cable. I opened the laptop and to my surprise I found that there was only one antenna cable (even when the card has two antenna connectors Main + Aux) and that it was connected to the Aux plug. I swapped the antenna to the Main connector and immediately the wifi signal went from poor to excellent.Unfortunately the bluetooth signal suffers from the same problem, it only detects and connects to devices within a 3 feet range.I believe that this laptop comes with a Broadcom Wifi/Bluetooth Combo board, I would like to know which antenna does the Bluetooth use and if there is any possibility that I could add an aux antenna into the chassis to improve the connectivity. Thanks in advance

My laptop gets stucked soon after I turn on the wifi. And also the wifi and the bluetooth does not work. I reformated the whole system, but no use. I updated the wifi drivers, but no use. I gave my laptop to service centre, even they don't know how to solve this issue. Please suggest me a solution.

I'm looking for a wifi router that will connect to the Internet via separate Bluetooth hotspot instead of (or even better, in addition to) a wired Ethernet connection from a modem.

Thanks for the help -

wifi usb adapter edimax ac450 and bluetooth logilink module are not working for me.



Wifi doesn't see any network. I've installed proper drivers.

Bluetooth sees and connects to devices, but after that every device goes grey and "unavailable"



I've just set up new system and it still occurs. What can I do about it?

A:Red X Next To Networks - Wifi and Bluetooth Not Working

Try in Safe Mode with Networking.

And sometimes wireless gets disabled when cable connection is made. Try removing the LAN cable and see if wireless come alive.

Hi,

We use an older laptop for our TV and Netflix etc and it works OK, but reading the TV screen from 15-feet back is a pain.

I'd like a dock with wifi/cable Network connection to the Internet and a Bluetooth link to a win8.1 tablet.

I have a Fire Stick and Chromecast and they do it OK, but then I have to use an Android phone to control them. The Android apps for the these are not as good as using a browser in windows 8.1.

So far I am thinking of an Acer Switch or ASUS T100 as they both have USB ports in the keyboard. I could use a USB-HDMI adapter, but that's going to run 300+bucks.

If I can get a dock that will sit at the TV, connected to the Network for Internet and linked to an 8" win8.1 tablet I already have, I can then use win8.1 for accessing everything via the browser.

Anyone heard of anything like this?
Where do I get it?

{edit}
If you are thinking Miracast, it does not cut it, the lag between movie visuals, sound and subtitles is a mess.

Thanks
