You have to have the Chromecast on a wifi network and your phone needs to be on that network to cast the screen.

But the router shouldn't need internet access once the Chromecast dongle has been set up. So any cheap wifi access point or router should work. (Even an old 802.11G, which you can probably find used for a few bucks - you only need about 6mbps for TV.)
