Sounds like you've covered most of the basic trouble shooting stuff.  Your connection speed is pretty slow.  Are you using the the extension cable that came with the Chromecast?  If not try it with that plugged in.  I've read the extension not only helps Chromecast fit in tight places but also boosts the WiFi antenna.
