    Default What routers work best with the Chromecast?

    So I've tried chromecast on two different routers. On one it works flawless(not my router, its a verizon router) and even changes input channel when I cast. My router is a belkin, and it works sometimes. Sometimes I need to reset the router. Sometimes it takes 10 tries for my chromecast app to find the chromecast on my router.

    My question is, is there a router that works best with Chromecast?

    Works fine on my Asus router. Belkin seems to get a disproportionate amount of complaints when routers are discussed on these forums.

    I use D-Link routers, Chromecast works fine with them.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Yeah my belkin definitely has issues, and for this it will be replaced. I would like the most compatible router as the experience changes a lot based on router.

    I have a Belkin f9K series router. To get it to work with Chromecast I had to type "http://912.168.2.1" into my browser - that connects you to your router so you can do 2 things. First, click on "Firewall" on the left, and turn it off (make sure you hit apply). Then click on "restart router" - it takes about 60 seconds. Then run the Chromecast app. Only thing that has worked for me. No more Belkins after this one fries.

    I am still using an old Netgear WNR2000v3 for 2 laptops, Blu-ray CC and 2 cellphones with no lag or problems.
