Chromecast disconnecting wifi

lexbex, Feb 7, 2:39pm
Does anyone know what I can do to make Chromecast work. The odd time I get it to work it disconnects other devices from Wi-Fi. Today Chromecast wouldn't connect at all and still disconnected everything else.

We have two and never any issue.
Try setting your wifi to a different channel.

How do I do that? I'm scared of mucking everything up.

It's maybe flooding your network with mdns broadcast traffic. Know issue.

I have no idea what that means sorry

Thank you ross1970. seems not a lot I can do until Google sort it out.

Funnily a standalone Chromecast is also referred to as a Chromecast built-in device lol. For the record, check the firmware version of your Chromecast.

A fix has been released I think so as per my above post check your chromecast is on the latest firmware. It should be, they auto update .

Do you mean you have two chromecasts? We have one TV upstairs and one downstairs and I would like to use the chrome cast on each one without having to unplug it each time depending on what TV is being used.

yeah we have two chromecasts. One on the lounge Tv, which is actually a smart tv but I find the chromecast has greater functionality and one on the bedroom tv . Very easy to setup.

I';ve had a similar problem in the past (devices disconnecting), the issue was ip address conflicts on the LAN. From memory the Chromecast likes to stick with the ip address it is issued with by the router on initial setup. Try giving the Chromecast a static ip address in the router.
