Cast Router Compatibility

If you're having an issue with your router, look for your router's make and model on the list below. The recommended workaround steps may resolve the issue for certain routers.

Routers not listed below may still be compatible with your Chromecast (1st gen), Chromecast, Chromecast Audio and Google Cast devices without any modifications to your settings.

Please note: In order to set up your Chromecast, make sure that you have access to a 2.4 GHz (for Chromecast (1st gen) devices) or 5 GHz network (for Chromecast and Chromecast Audio). 


Please keep in mind that resetting or making changes to your router settings may have unintended consequences. If you have questions or concerns, please consult your router manufacturer or Internet Service Provider (ISP) before making any changes.
