    Controlling LMS directly with app by wi-fi (no router)

    My friend has a laptop (probably Windows) with a wi-fi adaptor but does not have any form of home internet access or a wireless router. Is it still possible to use a phone app to control LMS installed on the laptop?

    Suggest he just buy a cheap WiFi G router.

    If your friend's laptop's WiFi module supports access point technology, you could establish an access point on the laptop to make its LMS accessible for any device in its vicinity, including smartphones and tablets. We use the same technology to turn Raspberry Pi's into mobile media centers with our Access Point Plugin.
