Netgear push2tv ...That's all you need my friend. Chromecast is nothing next to this. No need for WiFi. I plug it to my projector. No need ac adapter. Plug to projector usb or TV USB and its on. I stream anything on my phone screen to big screen. Anything!!! I have nexus 4 and perfect. Get netgear push2tv. No limitations.
Contrary to what has been said, you CAN control your chromecast without an external router. Most non-google applications, including screen mirroring apps, will work and transmit to the chromecast through the WiFi access point you can enable on most devices (aka tethering).
See my thread in http://forum.xda-developers.com/hard...evice-t2791313
I could cast local media, YouTube and mirror my screen on TV using 3rd party apps. Google seems to dislike that because their branded apps don't show the chromecast when connected through tethered WiFi.
I think that being free from the need of an external router is great and allows the chromecast to be used anywhere and nomadically, instead of limiting it to a domestic appliance.
Let me know, please, if you can replicate my method, because at present no one seemed to bother to try and report

So, pretty much, looks like problem solved with the latest update to chromecast.
I'm not sure about that... Still requires Internet connection and a WiFi network to connect to. If the "not on your WiFi" feature does a WiFi Direct connect that isn't remembered, then maybe, but it might just exchange the existing WiFi authentication. We'll have to wait and see.
