Have you tried using your User Guide to help you through this process? If more help is needed follow the steps below to connect the WirelessHD transmitter and receiver:
Note: The included AC adapters may be labeled “Receiver” and “Transmitter.” Ensure that the correct adapter is used for each device.
Note: The transmitter and receiver are pre-paired and should discover each other shortly after being powered on. However, should you experience an excessively long delay (over five minutes) for the link to be established, press HDMI/WVAN on the back of the WirelessHD transmitter for at least three seconds to establish the link (the WirelessHD receiver must also be powered on during this process).

Check with your PC manufacturer to be sure that you have the latest version of the WAC (WirelessHD Application Controller) software installed on your PC. Then use the following sequence:
NOTE: If the connection process fails when switching between the Rocketfish WirelessHD transmitter and the laptop, try the procedure again. Sometimes you may need to repeat it 1 or 2 times. Future updates to the WAC software on your laptop may reduce the number of connection attempts when switching between the laptop and other WirelessHD sources.

Here are a few troubleshooting steps to try:

No. The WirelessHD kit operates in the 60 GHz frequency, which allows for the necessary bandwidth to send full HDMI signals with no data compression or bit dropping, but is not designed to penetrate walls or floors.

No, the transmitter uses a narrow focused 60 GHz RF (Radio Frequency) beam that is capable of scanning the full room to find the receiver. The transmitter can generally always find the receiver as long as the beam path is not blocked by metal or some other very thick or dense materials.
The 60GHz beam does not penetrate well through thick materials like walls, ceilings, floors, or people. Instead the beam bounces off the surface of these obstacles and can maintain a full quality HD video connection at 4 Gbps even though one or two bounces are needed for the transmitter beam to reach the receiver even when they are positioned such that there is no direct line of sight path between the receiver and the transmitter.
For best performance the receiver should always be wall mounted near the TV (or ceiling mounted near a projector) such that the front side of the receiver (with the Rocketfish and WiHD logos) has a clear view of the area of the room where the transmitter is located. Such mounting allows it to receive 60 GHz beams from any angle off of the walls, ceiling, or floor. The receiver should never be mounted behind a TV or projector as the metal in the display will block the 60 GHz beam and give the transmitter fewer beam path options to reach the receiver.

Yes, the 60 GHz beam from the transmitter can penetrate through many thin materials that are not very dense like wood, glass, or paper, but it cannot penetrate through very dense materials like metal or stone. You can try placing the transmitter inside of a cabinet located within 32 feet of the receiver within the same room. If the video quality does not look the same as an HDMI cable, you may need to place the transmitter on top of the cabinet in case the 60 GHz beam cannot penetrate well through your cabinet or otherwise has a hard time to find a good lossless path from the transmitter to the receiver.
