The way I understand it is that if you have the Wireless Display capability
enabled / included within your PC, it broadcasts wireless directly from the
PC to the MICROSOFT display device, which I believe works on the Miracast
technology.  It does NOT run through LAN to a router; so unlike a Ring Door
Bell, as an example, it does not require pairing the Wireless Display to the
router.  It works more like bluetooth.  I hope that makes sense.  You have
to
have the PC within 200ft range of the dongle to get good reception for it to
work as a result; unless they make some type of repeater.  Considering my TV
as well as my second monitor are within 10ft of the PC, I can speak to it
working perfectly.  And, it's not consuming resources or bandwidth (whatever
it's called) from the router.
