Dual Wi-Fi for Screencasting

If you're having network difficulty screencasting on the Vibe board, this is a simple solution.


For customers  with wireless screencast issues, including:

  • Unable to screencast through the network
  • Wireless screencast is not stable

Dual WI-FI will set up a hotspot for you to screencast wirelessly, which is more stable and smooth. 

Here are the step-by-step instructions:


  1. Purchase recommended dongle from Amazon or elsewhere

  5. If you don’t want to reset the cast hotspot, please skip this step. You can enter the Settings -> Vibe Cast -> Cast Hotspot directory to set up. You can modify the hotspot name, security, password, and band.

  6. Find the WiFi name provided by Vibe on the device that you want to cast and connect. If you forget the WiFi name or password, you can open the Vibe cast guide to see the WiFi information.

Note: In order to ensure the performance of the screencast, the maximum connection support is 5 devices. If you cannot connect, please first disconnect an existing device then try again
