Linksys Velop Mesh Router despite being a unique and highly advanced router is susceptible to problems. Many users have reported problems when trying to access the internet on one of their devices through Velop Mesh Wi-Fi Router. Many people have complained that they are not able to cast anything onto their Chromecast devices from Chrome browse despite the fact that they are connected to the internet via Velop Mesh Wi-Fi Router. Chromecast is connected to the network, but the Chromecast is not visible from the browser installed on the computer.
The problem is not between the connection of Velop Setup and Chromecast, but when the computer and Chromecast are on the same network, then casting any content onto Chromecast shouldn’t be a problem. Some experts who have intervened into the matter told the suffering users that the issue might have risen due to the problem with the band that the router is on. If Linksys Velop is on a band that Chromecast doesn’t support, then they will not be able to see the device. The right approach to fix the problem would be to turn on the “UPNP” along with ensuring that the isolation is turned off.
Another user is also facing the same problem, as he plugged all of his hardwired devices into the modem/router from the internet service provider followed by plugging the Velop into the modem/router and turning off the wireless radio in the modem/router because only then, Velop can be used for wireless.
The problem was quite similar, but the solution was a bit different. The user was able to solve the problem by plugging the hardware cable from his desktop into the Ethernet port given on the Velop node rather than on the modem/router. Now, the user is able to cast from the web browser installed on the desktop to his Chromecast devices.
One more user was facing issues related to casting on Chromecast from his Galaxy smartphone. The user was using Samsung Galaxy S8 in which the device showed ‘no internet access’.
The user was able to surf the web and access all other features but was not able to cast from his smartphone onto Chromecast. That user was not sure whether he actually needs a Wi-Fi connection to use Google Chromecast. He was also using a separate DSL router and a Wi-Fi system, and he didn’t try casting onto Chromecast using the DSL router. His problem can also be solved if he changes the band of the Velop Router because that is the main problem behind the inability to cast from various devices onto Chromecast. Hope you will take note from these stories and ensure that you don’t get the same problems while accessing your Google Chromecast.
