We have an Orange Siemens SE572 router. It is not on the list of supported routers. I've played with the settings a little bit, but no joy.
I've also taken the Chromecast away from the TV and just plugged it into the mains to see if the flashing white light becomes solid as I assume that I won't be able to connect until it becomes solid?
Flashing white light and either "Set me up" or "Reconnect me" on the TV means Chromecast is either not configured to connect to a wireless AP yet, or it cannot connect to the configured wireless AP.
In this mode, Chromecast becomes
its own open wireless AP (with no access to anything else, obviously) broadcasting as Chromecast####
. The device running the Chromecast app or accessing the manual setup then connects to
network to configure Chromecast, providing the wireless AP SSID and credentials that it will eventually connect to
Since you're getting "No Chromecasts found" it shouldn't have anything to do with your router, as the blinking white light means Chromecast isn't connected
to your router anyway.
What device are you running the Chromecast app on? It automatically scans for nearby wireless networks named Chromecast####
but in some cases you may need to manually connect to the Chromecast####
