I remember seeing that with a basic google search.
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]

C:\>netsh wlan show drivers
The Wireless AutoConfig Service (wlansvc) is not running.
So.. is there hope?

I'd expect the driver to send video over LAN so that the MS dongle-thingy
can
pick it up over my wi-fi network.  That's how the audiocast thingy works.
So.. technically, I don't need wi-fi support at the PC.  I only need the
ability
to add an extra display.  Maybe I'm confused.

Your laptop is probably broadcasting the vid signal from the laptop radios.
I just wonder how is a desktop supposed to do it if it doesn't have a wifi
device attached.  Therefore, it just needs to broadcast the signal over the
LAN
and the wifi from the router should broadcast it.
