Default Wifi Direct on the Samsung Galaxy S2

Hi guys,
Can someone post instructions on how to wifi direct the GS with a laptop. I have a Samsung laptop and think it should be easy, right? I however can not make a connection.

You can use Kies Air. It should be a stock app on your phone. You can connect with your phone in your laptop browser.

I am using ICS on my S2.

Tried:-

What is Wi-Fi Direct & How to use it in Samsung Galaxy S II?

I do not get Configure Wi-Fi Direct. I just get "Wi-fi Direct" ON/OFF. When ON it next says scanning but never finds another device.

I want my S2 to connect with my Dell 1545 laptop. Do I have to have to add anything to the Dell to make its wifi read my S2?

Anyone got a laptop and S2 connected and if so how?
