Chromecast and Belkin routers setup help.
Anyone else having trouble configuring the chromecast via WiFi with a belkin router? I have tried at my Mother's house with my personal chromecast that works fine at my home with an apple time capsule but could not for the life of me get the chromecast to work via the belkin. I gave up after an hour. Two of my buddies got chromecast for Christmas and they are having trouble setting it up at their home and they have belkin routers as well.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Re: Chromecast and Belkin routers setup help.
I would ensure that you router has been updated to the most recent firmware. Also, check that any AP Isolation or Client Isolation options are disabled, possibly ICMP Blocking as well. If those turn out to not be the issue, you might try adding the Chromecast's IP to the router's DMZ controls.
Those are the most common culprits for Chromecast-related network issues, so hopefully some combination of those will solve the problem. And yeah, you're not the only one who has had issues getting a Chromecast to work with Belkin routers.
