I am having an issue with getting my 2nd Gen Chromecast to work. Everything points to an issue with the network (or I have a fault chromecast). I can cast for a minute or two, and then the Chromecast will reboot itself. Does anyone know of the router settings needed for Chromecast to work on the G110? I've ruled out a firewall issue by putting the Chromecast in the DMZ, still crashed. This only happens while casting. If I am not casting, the chromecast does not reboot itself.
Chromecast is connected to the 2.4GHz network (5GHz is enabled, but I have it on a different SSID). IGMP and uPNP are enabled. Google recommends turning off IGMP Proxy, AP/Client Isolation, and proxy servers, and turning on multicast - but I can't find those settings in the router portal.
I'm an IT guy, so if the answer is technical, let me have it.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Should not be that difficult to use. Roku works similarly but this is the instructions for Chromecast
Also universal plug n play is not necessary to be on. I use a Netgear but I turned off upnp. On Verizon quantum routers turn off WMM
in the manual page 37 change from enable to disable. Page 56
I was having the same issue with my G1100 Router. Unchecking "Enable Automatic Cleanup of Old Unused UPnP Services" seems to allow Chromecasts to stay on the network:
LMK your findings! Good luck
Not sure if this still works, but you may be able to disable the IGMP Proxy in the router using this link: http://192.168.1.1/index.cgi?active_page=6059 . Make sure you've logged into the router's web interface before trying to visit that page.
