Chromecast loses WiFi after use
I hope the forum can help. I have read FAQ and some 5 pages of topics without finding anything.
My Chromecast keeps losing its connection to my WiFi when CC is not
in use. Standard routine goes like this:
- When deciding to use the CC, I always find that it is not connected to my WiFi, even though the Chromecast is always AC connected.
- I try rebooting the CC (by unplugging the power and plugging it in again)
- Observing that the CC does not pick up the WiFi, I reset the WiFi router
- When that does not cut it, I repeat step 2, and then I am on.
Sometimes I even need to repeat 2-4 to succeed.
After using the CC, some time later (minutes? hours?), the process needs to be redone.
But once connected and casting, the connection is flawless!
By coincidence, my ISP sent me a new router whilst I was troubleshooting these problems, but even switching hardware has not helped.
My current router is a MediaAccess TG788vn v2, but as indicated, I suspect it is not the problem.
It is set to the recommended 2.4 GHz 802.11 b/g/n by default, and since it works on-and-off, I suspect it is not a channel issue either?
Thanks for any inputs.
