Chrome won't read Chromecast

I've already established a connection with Chromcast on my Macbook Pro, configuring the network and other settings but can't seem to get the Chrome browser to pick up the device. After troubleshooting for hours, the browser did read the device but only for a few hour before mysteriously stopping; so I know there is some hope. Also my phone as well as other guest laptops haven't had a problem picking up the Chromecast with their Chrome browsers. I've tried all kinds of firewall settings but all to no avail; so I turn to you all for help.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated; thanks in advance.

Similar. Chrome browser on N7HD has no indication of how to cast screen to TV.

I cannot do the same from my iPad 1; the Chromecast setup was done from a Windows laptop... No Chromecast wi-fi network or setup option is visible in Chrome on iPad.

Deep down in the help I found that you can't cast from Chrome browser on Android.

I think I must have some VPN that I'm unaware of that is preventing the ChromeCast from working. I'm completely lost on how to go about fixing the problem though. Like I mentioned earlier I've gotten the Chrome to cast to the Chromecast a few times after turning a billion things off but then it just stops working mysteriously. As of late I've yet to get chrome to find the Chromecast and am again searching for help
