Generation 1 Chromecast cannot “communicate” with my iPhone while it is connected to the same WiFi 0 Recommended Answers 1 Reply 0 Upvotes

I am attempting to set up a factory reset gen 1 chromecast to my iPhone. 

1st - my WiFi network which is functioning normally will not appear in the list of available networks in the google home app, I have resorted to going to “other network” and typing in the name and password, I am unaware of which security type my network is but I have tried all three which leads to the same conclusion either way

2nd - My google home app says that while my Chromecast is connect to my WiFi my iPhone and Chromecast cannot communicate with one another which requires a “small change” in my WiFi setting but it does not elaborate any further

My WiFi works, my phone works, the Chromecast used to work, but something isn’t right

Hello, Welcome to the Chromecast Help Community
 
Try each of the following before moving on to the next:
  • Turn your iOS device OFF and back ON
  • Are you using the Google Home app  that replaced the Chromecast app?
  • Are your Apple devices on current Minimum system requirement?
  • Turn on Bluetooth:
    1. On the home screen, tap Settings > Bluetooth.
    2. Make sure the slider is On (toggled to the right and green).
    3. Close out of Settings and return to the Google Home app .
  • Reboot your router
  • Make sure you power the Chromecast device with the provided power supply into an open electrical outlet, not using a USB input on your TV or other device.
  • Make sure your Chromecast device is plugged into a HDMI input that is not labeled as ARC or DVI. 
    Unfortunately, any dongles, adapters and devices between Chromecast and the TV are unsupported so your use may vary.
  • Check your Apple Wifi settings
  • Your Apple device, Chromecast device and Wi-Fi Router should be within ~15 feet (4 meters) of each other. 
  • Reboot Google Home app on your Apple device > tap on Devices  > tap the Cog Wheel > tap on the three stacked dots in the top right corner > tap Reboot
  • Conduct a factory data reset on your Chromecast device.
  • Try Chromecast on the SAME 2.4 (Chromecast 1st gen requirement) Ghz frequency wifi router band as your iOS devices
  • See original post by Google employee about other settings.
