Chromecast has become the most popular Google device among users. It is a small accessory that we can use to stream content to a television or monitor that does not have Smart TV functions. In this article we explain how you can use your Chromecast if your router does not have Wi-Fi technology .
So you can use your Chromecast without a WiFi router
The normal operation of Chromecast is very simple, because all we have to do is connect this device to the same Wi-Fi network, which we use with our mobile phone, to be able to send all kinds of content through a multitude of compatible apps.
Now imagine that you are in a rural house, or in a hotel where you do not have access to a Wi-Fi network, but you want to continue using your Chromecast. What can you do? The answer is quite simple, although you will need to have another mobile phone with the capacity to access a data network.
The only requirement for Chromecast to work is to have a Wi-Fi network with Internet access. Normally we use a router to generate this Wi-Fi network, although it is also possible to do it using an Android smartphone. Today's mobiles can behave like a modem , since they are capable of creating a Wi-Fi network using the data from the 4G connection.
Therefore, if you want to use your Chromecast, and you don't have a router with Wi-Fi, you will need to have two mobiles . One of these mobiles is the one that will be in charge of replacing the router, creating the Wi-Fi network that you will use with your Chromecast. The other mobile is the one that you will use normally to send content to the Chromecast.
Creating a Wi-Fi network with an Android phone is very simple. You just need to access the " Settings " application, then enter the " Network and Internet " section, and finally access " My Wi-Fi zone ". Once inside you should see an option that allows you to create a Wi-Fi access point.
Keep in mind that by doing this you will be using the data rate of your mobile phone so that the Chromecast can work. Depending on how you use it, this data may be consumed very quickly, so you should be careful.
