Just stream to tv, no internet via WIFI

Hi Henry,

EZCast software version:
OS: windows 7
Dongle software version: 14583000

I have a 'wired' (cat5) house, so most pc's have a cable attached, so their WIFI adapter is on but not used.
Due to the concrete the WIFI does not work on the first floor where my TV is and the ground floor where the WIFI router is.

So I want to stream from a wired PC to the dongle WIFI in the TV in the same room, but the dongle won't do it as it says "EZCast Screen activation requires internet access"

Why does it need to connect to internet?
Do you need to know or tell someone what I watch :-)
Just kidding.

I can see WIFI of the PC goes on and connects to the dongle WIFI but that is where it all stops.
On the dongle I configured Connection 'direct link only'

How can I do what I wish to do?
I assume I'm missing something.

Dear Bogus:

Sorry for confusing.
EZCast screen is a feature, by which you can cast content or display to other EZCast app.
(Please refer to

For windows mirroring, you can use EZCast app directly (without internet).
For web video streaming (iOS, android, windows, Mac), you have to connect the dongle to the internet through setting.
(Please refer to

Thanks for your understanding and sorry for the inconvenience.
