Windows 10 64bit stopped being able to mirror screen to Roku Streaming Stick
I have a Dell laptop with Widows 10 64bit installed and two Roku Stream Stick devices, an original and +. In the last week I have not been able to connect/mirror to either Roku device.
I get this screen:
Followed in 30 seconds by a "Couldn't Connect" notification on my laptop.
I recently,2021-03-13, had some Windows updates installed on laptop. I removed them, as this issue was not happening prior to updates, with no resolution to my issue.
I have done everything I can think of: removed and reinstalled devices from laptop, disabled and reenabled screen mirror on both devices, restarted both devices and laptop, checked Miracast driver for updates. All with no resolution.
I am still able to "Cast" to my Roku devices from YouTube!
If anyone is experiencing the same issue and/or have found a resolution, any help would be greatly appreciated. I mainly use the connection to project pdf music tabs while playing.

A lot of postings in forum about being able to connect previously with Win10 and Miracast, but then lost ability. Lots of different things got different people some success. Here is a posting with various things to try. I like the idea of using the Network Resets on both the Roku device and the laptop as well as verifying the Device Connect feature in the Roku.
I do know I experienced issues with an Acer laptop that came with Win10 and casting to my Ultra and a RokuTV. Sometimes it connected, sometimes it wouldn't. It quickly became a Linux laptop anyways and I just use HDMI when the need arises. Sorry couldn't be of more help. Maybe the link above will get you in the right direction.
I am convinced the issue is with the MS Servicing Stack 10.0.19041.860 installation on 2021-03-13. The update must have screwed up Miracast. I have post my issue on the MS support site in hopes of a resolution.
