Question

Mirror my PC screen to my TV using "simpler network network

Hi,

I'm struggling this issue for a long time and wonder if there's anyone who can help me solve the riddle and how?
My internet service provider is BT therefore I'm using BThub4 router.

The architecture:

I have my computer connected (wired) to the router using "simpler network network adapter" (Can be seen here as well http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/181745472640?adgroupid=16885268106&hlpht=true&hlpv=2&rlsatarget=kwd-124273562226&adtype=pla&ff3=1&lpid=122&poi=&ul_noapp=true&limghlpsr=true&ff19=0&device=c&chn=ps&campaignid=270621186&crdt=0&ff12=67&ff11=ICEP3.0.0-L&ff14=122&viphx=1&ops=true&ff13=80) and that way I have my computer connected wired to my router and it is working just perfect, on the other side of my house I have my TV (LG 42LE5900 42-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p 100Hz LED Internet TV with Freeview HD) connected to the router using the same way ("simpler network network adapter").

Goal:
My goal is to be able to mirror my PC screen to my TV.

Is it possible using the hardware I'm having and using? and if it is please explain how because I've tried many things and it didn't work.

Thank you very much,

OV

I'm going with no.

So far, mirroring requires more than just a network connection. Your list of gear do not appear to be able to mirror.

In this case and since a WiFi mirror will stutter and more at 1080p, I suggest you use a HDMI cable.

You need a device like

the Chromecast which is basically wireless HDMI.

Chromecast

I do use Chromecast but because of the Chromecast distance from the router there are always bad connection and drop downs so it's impossible to watch anything via the Chromecast , that's why I'm looking for different solutions.
Is there anything that can connect between the computer and the TV and mirror the PC to my TV???

What about using a router as a WAP.

If it's a signal strength thing this would help.

Then no again.

Since WiFi mirroring isn't direct to the TV you just dropped another bomb on why the WiFi mirroring is a bad idea. Your common mirror is a connection to the WLAN and if the TV has mirroring (most don't) then you just dropped a bomb on the mirror over WiFi idea.

Wireless HDMI is a direct to the TV system.

Use a wifi extender :)

Hi,
If you're ready to invest a little more on your chromecast you could buy a range extender and extend the range of your wifi that's what i do it would cost you around $20. i guess its the only way around. These extenders are very easy to setup also and they are completely wireless find one on amazon or something good luck!
