IAP-105 (FW: + Google Chromecast cast icon disappearing on the TV...



I'm wondering if someone can help - basically my Chromecast devices (have quite few..) drop from wireless network roughly 20 seconds after being powered on. Glowing blue cast icon on the TV disappears (icon is still there but not lit in blue) as well as the SSID name so I'm only left with the Chromecast device name. At this point I cannot see any devices from the Chromecast app on my phone.

Running IAP-105's with firmware at the moment.


Services screen showing settings for Chromecast I have configured:



Do you guys have any ideas why the Chromecast would drop after being initially connected?


Any thoughts appreciated.

Are the wireless devices and the Chromecast devices on the same WLAN/VLAN?  Then turn of airgroup and re-rest.

Can you also try enabling "Allow all" services in Airgroup Services. As of now I see that you have only enabled Googlecast & "DLNA Media". There may be other services required in this case if they are across VLANs.


You can do a pcap to identify services being used.
