It could have an issue with your WiFi.
Try it on a different one.
If I remember right, at least the 1st gen, supports only 2.4GHz routers.
So find one, or try it on a few.

I think it has something to do with your screen, is it a 720p or a 1080P?

I have like the same setup like you so unfortunately there is no fix. Chromecast will work only on the formats 720p or 1080p. I purchased a cheap Miracast dongle and works like a charm on a set-up like yours. Unless the converter can be setup to 720p you will be able to use it...
