This is a general fix for the common problem of Chromecast connecting to your wifi but not accessing the internet. On my connection the Chromecast would work sporadically and then drop. I have two Buffalo routers with one as a wireless bridge and both running DD-WRT. All I had to do was set the DNS to Google's servers, 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4.

I didn't have that problem but I had to set mine the same way to access my favorite gun and cooking sites.

One day, my ISP simply could not resolve their names - and I know that the servers are not involved in anything nefarious.

I think a lot of ISPs can be explained by Hanlon's razor .

Every now and again ISPs have DNS issues. Happens to Comcast every few months as well.
