Title: Chromecast dropping signal repeatedly. Now Solved
Post by: jlsinco on December 23, 2013, 11:57:26 PM
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.
