My Dad has a new LG smart TV but has no internet at home, he does have all you can eat data on his mobile phone.

Does anybody know if I set up my old Netgear wireless router without a internet connection to that router would it allow him to screen share from his phone to the TV so he can use my Net fli x account.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks.

A way to get around tethering is to use a hdmi out on a phone direct to tv.

Are they not all Smart these days, he wanted a bigger TV with the option of inbuilt freesat.

I keep telling him to get proper internet tbh.
