    I've spent a lot of time looking for an answer to this. I have a cabin with no Wi-Fi and I'd like be able to stream my phone's screen on my TV. I used to be able to use an HDMI cord but it seems they removed that ability from my GS7. So I have been able to use smart share to stream to a fire stick even though it didn't work great it did work. Now I got a new Pixel 3 and it will not mirror my screen to my fire stick. If I try WiFi direct I can see my fire stick but it asks for a password which I have never set up. I have tried using a hotspot with two phones and my Chromecast but that hasn't worked right either.
    I just want to stream from my phone to my TV without WiFi.

    Try Microsoft's Wireless Display Adapter: https://forums.androidcentral.com/e?...token=SSE-u6JA

    Belkin has one, too: https://forums.androidcentral.com/e?...token=bVdgQY6e

    Thanks for your reply. The Microsoft one says WiFi. Do you know if it will work without and Internet connection or router?
    I used to be able to use my fire stick with no internet, wifi, or data. Now with this Pixel 3 it's not working.
    I already have a cable, Fire stick, and Chromecast that aren't working. So I do want to buy more stuff that may not work.

    Hmm, sorry -- I thought those things work using a direct wi-fi connection, rather than requiring a local wi-fi network. Let me look a little more closely.

    EDIT: When it says wi-fi, I think they mean Wi-fi Direct, which doesn't require a local wi-fi network. I looked at the Belkin support page, and since it's using the Wireless Display option, that shouldn't require a local network: https://forums.androidcentral.com/e?...token=9WVlkRfG

    Yeah the Belkin one looks like it may work. And I thought WiFi direct would work with my fire stick but it keeps asking for a password. I think I read that it is for hooking up remotes or something.
