Chromecast will not connect to Aruba Instant IAP-103

Hello,

 

I have 11 IAP-103's in my corporate network, running version 6.4.2.0-4.1.1.1_46936. 

 

I've tried everything I can think of to get Chromecast to connect to my network, to no avail. 

 

I'm allowing all traffic and have the Broadcast Filteriing option set to ALL. 

 

We've upgrade the Chromecast firmware to the lastest as well. 

 

What do I have to do to get this to work? I'd find it hard to believe that Chromecast isn't compatible with Aruba Instant. 

 

Thank you

It won't connect at all or you can't complete the setup?

Going through the initial set up process, it's able to see my wifi network and I get to the point of entering the SSID/Password (using WPA-2 Personal), click continue and it spins for about a minute before failing to connect

Do you have AirGroup Enabled ?

If you do try disabling it
Thank you

I'm pretty sure it's not enabled. I've attached a screenshot of my current Airgroup settings

HI Tim & Victor,

 

Do my settings look correct? 

 

Reading this post, it appears an updatet to 6.4 was the fix.

I'm on 6.4.2.0-4.1.1.1_46936, but still no luck. 

 

Thanks for your help

Re: Chromecast will not connect to Aruba Instant IAP-103

To anyone reading this post; THIS IS THE FIX

 

1. Ensure you've factory reset the Chromecast device

 

2. In the Aruba GUI, go to More-->Services

 

3. Under the Airgroup tab, check the Enable DLNA box

 

4. Under AirGroup Service, enable the following: 

 

-googlecast

-DIAL

-DLNA Media

 

Everything else in this section remains unchecked/disabled

 

5. Go through the initial Chromecast setup process. 

 

Done. My Chromecast is now able to join my corporate wirless network

Re: Chromecast will not connect to Aruba Instant IAP-103

Hi,

I am trying to do this for the current version of the central.arubanetworks.com.

I cannot see any optons for the DLNA settings etc.

 

i am able to connect the IAP205 devices if i use an open Access Point. but not with a WPA2 password.

 

Any ideas?

What is your problem? Are you using Aruba Central or just Instant?
