Hello,

I have since yesterday an Chromecast.
I'm so far happy with it and the possibilities.
I have installed my Chromecast on my TV in my bedroom (a dormer window). My WiFi connectivy is very bad so I have a wifi extender so I can normally watch YouTube videos. But the problem is when the WiFi extender is on that I can't stream things to my Chromecast. When the WiFi extender is off the Chromecast works perfect.

How can I fix this?

Thanks in advance.

I think it should work? Unless the extender is somehow filtering out some traffic.

If you can set up the WiFi extender as a bridge with its own SSID (essentially just another WiFi access point), then connect Chromecast to its SSID, that might work better.

Another thing g to keep in mind is the chrome cast only works on 2.4 not a 5 GHz signal.
