Use Chromecast without WiFi via Ethernet Adaptor

Until now, you cannot use Chromecast on your TV without a Wi-Fi connection, but now that is possible with Ethernet Adaptor.

In the absence of Wi-Fi, you can use your Android phone’s Wi-Fi hotspot to connect with Chromecast, but your experience may not be always satisfactory. Now, there is a new, reliable method to use your Chromecast without a Wi-Fi connection. Google has released a new Ethernet adaptor (available for just $15) that lets you connect your Chromecast directly to your router.


If you do not have a good Wi-Fi connection at your home to use Chromecast, you can use Google’s new Ethernet adaptor. However, your router must be near to your TV.
