How to connect chromecast

I haven't been able to find out if chromecast will work with my desktop computer that is plugged into directly in to my wireless router giving me internet access. I have a laptop I use occasionally that connects through wifi to the same router. I understand that the laptop would work with chromecast but the desktop computer is used much more. I don't want to have to get the laptop computer out each time I want to use chromecast. My question is can the desktop use the wireless in the router for chromecast with the desktop computer since it is plugged into the wireless router for internet access?

If you have an icon by the clock, right click on it and go to network connections or sharing center to view you adapter setting.

How do I connect my Dell Studio 1909 to my hdtv?


Your computer does not have a HDMI connection or even VGA, there is no direct way to connect to your HDTV. But, all is not lost. Check out Chromecast, it plugs into the HDMI port on your HDTV and connects over your wireless network. This allows you to broadcast your desktop over your network and the Chromecast displays it on your HDTV.

Will chromecast work with compaq cq60-615dx


Chromecast is connected to the TV and not to your computer. Your TV should have free HDMI port to connect the Chromecast.
You should WiFi configured and both chromecast and you computer ( you can use wired connection for PC) should be connected to the same network (router).

How do I get netflex on another TV that isn't a Smart TV


You can either use a gaming console (PS3/PS4, Xbox 360/Xbox one. OR pick up a Chromecast. It's a device that plugs directly into an HDMI port on the TV and uses your WiFi to connect.

Why won't Amazin Fire Stick or Google ChromeCast work on my Samsung led 3D tv? Model UN46FH6030FXZA


Make sure your Chromecast or Fire stick are not only plugged into the tv, but also plugged into a power source. You may need to try to plug them directly into the wall rather than the usb on the TV itself.

How do i stream content video and more Using my Google chrome cast HDMI dongle to my TV LED or LCD


You have to purchase a chromecast compatible app from the app store in order to strem your own video, however some services offer chromecast in the app such as YouTube, Netflix, Pandora, and others. To get chromecast to work with your phone you need the chromecast app
(Free Download) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.chromecast.app
Search Chromecast in the app store to see a list of available apps.
Once you have a compatible app, setup your chromecast by plugging it into your TV. (Both the key itself, and the USB power cable) change your TV input to the input you plugged your chromecast's key into. Make note of the name it gives your chromecast. Once connected to your WiFi and setup, open the chromecast app on your phone or device. It should pop up and ask you to connect to your chromecast. Once connected open a compatible app and click the chromecast streamer. It looks like a rectangle with a WiFi symbol in the lower left corner. Your TV should now show the main page for your app! Whala!
Have fun streaming using your Chromecast!

Will a Google Chromecast work with a 43FDX15B Hitachi HDTV Monitor?


All you need is a free HDMI port. The Chromecast comes with a USB power adapter to plug into the wall, or if you have a free USB port on your TV you can use it. It works great, but there is a bit of a learning curve to understand how to connect it. I use my Windows 8.1 tablet and my Windows 7 notebook.
