My son has a kindle fire with a bunch of shows downloaded from Amazon Prime.

Our lake place doesn't have Cable or Wifi and barely has a cell single. We are not going to add more monthly bills by adding cable or internet down at the lake place.

How can I cast his shows to the TV's without using wifi.

It looks like a fire stick needs to have Wifi to work (I could be wrong). And a google chrome won't work with Kindle fire and Amazon prime. At least I can't find away, I can get it to stream at home through the laptop but not the Kindle fire.

You can setup up a wifi access point without a connection to the internet. Not sure if that solves your problem, but a wifi network will allow devices attached to talk locally without an internet connection.

John is correct. Any cheap, ancient wifi-enabled router you have laying around will work. No need for it to actually have internet service attached - casting happens right on the local network.

Used one for $10:

That makes perfect sense.


Do you think there will be any problem with router not have power connected to it for a week or two while we are away. Like losing setting?

The router should hold it's setting while powered down.

Just put it behind a decent power strip or unplug it before you cut power to/from the place if that's what you do while away and it should be fine.

i use this to stream in my escalade TV's. small/portable and powered by the TV thru USB.

allows me to watch live TV thru my cable provider in my vehicle. As long as it's compatible with the device this will work great for what you need.
