I have had Chromecast running for about two weeks. Recently it has started dropping the wifi connection when i am casting from Real Player Cloud. It has happened both when casting from my LG smart phone and from Windows 7 on a laptop wireless connected to my main computer. The only way I have been able to get CC back on line is to disconnect it and perform a factory reset then run setup again on my devices. Anyone else experiencing this problem?
Problem solved. I found a comment on another forum that was explaining the same problem I was experiencing. The solution presented there was to replace the USB cable powering the Chromecast device. I did that and have been casing video from my laptop and phone for over 6 hours straight without one drop. The USB cable that I replaced was the one that came with Chromecast. I love the simple fix we most often overlook. Hope this helps others.
Yep that works. I had the same problem and did the same thing.
