Chromecast problems again


After attempting in vain to connect my new Chromecast to my Uverse provided 2wire router, I bit the bullet and pulled out my D-Link DIR-655 and set it up.

But for whatever reason, it still will not work.

Can someone please help me?

Settings I've checked so far:

Checked "Enable Multicast Streams"

Checked "Enable UpnP"

"Turn MAC filtering OFF"

I'm at my wit's end...

Have powered off and on the router after the changes were made?

All these Chromecast problem topics are making me nervous for when mine finally comes in.

re: Chromecast problems again


It asks me after each change is made if I want to restart the router and I always select 'yes'.

Guess I could try to power-cycle it as well.

re: Chromecast problems again


I think it has more to do with the 2wire routers only. I haven't heard anyone else having problems.

Its more an issue with the router. Ive connected mine to 3 different routers at this point with no issue.

What brands?

I don't understand what I'm doing wrong with thid D-Link router. And there's nothing clear cut online on a fix.

re: Chromecast problems again


Yeah but that's for a 2wire, not D-Link.

But I did try to do that on my Uverse 2wire to no avail...

re: Chromecast problems again


Alright, the issue appears to be with my work laptop.

I successfully synced another laptop, iphone, and ipad with my Chromecast successfully.

Don't really know where to start as to getting this work laptop functioning on my Chromecast, but I may just have to do without it working.
